Description

The exciting Audi Quattro from the 1980s joins Oxford’s 1:76 series of classic cars.

Revolutionary and influential for its day, the Quattro was conceived and designed by the visionary Audi in-house engineer Jőrg Bensinger and his team at Audi AG, part of the Volkswagen Automobile Group. A new concept, the Quattro linked the features of four-wheel drive (hence the name Quattro), front engine layout with a turbo charged engine and 5 speed manual gearbox. Classed as a mid-sized two-door coupe with a 2.1 litre engine – which was upgraded to 2.2L later on – the Audi Quattro was assembled in Ingolstadt in Germany and launched at the March 1980 Geneva Motor Show, selling at £14,500, a good £5000 less than its rivals.
