1981 Audi Quattro

The 1981 Audi Quattro was a high-performance sports car produced by Audi AG. It was the first commercial four-wheel-drive car and revolutionized the sports car market. The Quattro was first introduced to the public in 1980, but the production started in 1981.

The Quattro was powered by a turbocharged 2.2-liter inline-five-cylinder engine that produced 197 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The engine was paired with a five-speed manual transmission and utilized Audi’s unique all-wheel-drive system, which gave the vehicle exceptional grip and performance on all terrains.

The exterior design of the Quattro was inspired by the Audi 80/90 series, but they modified it with larger wheel arches, a more aggressive front end, and a rear spoiler to improve aerodynamics. The car was available in just one body style, a two-door coupe.

The interior of the Quattro was also unique, with its functional layout and high-quality materials. The sporty seats were equipped with a fine Nappa leather upholstery and adjustable lumbar support.

The Quattro was a sportscar that was ahead of its time, and for this reason, it remains a sought-after vehicle by car enthusiasts. While the production of the 1981 Audi Quattro was limited, it paved the way for future Audi sports cars, establishing Audi as a leader in automotive technology.
