About the car
The Quattro is the first sports coupé with permanent all-wheel drive to be produced in series by the brand. The first generation was powered by a 5-cylinder, 2.1-litre, 10-valve engine (WR type) with turbocharger and intercooler, which increased power to 200 horsepower (compared to 170 horsepower in the version without intercooler that equipped the 200 Turbo). The Audi Quattro is easily recognizable by its widened fenders and specific bumpers, which differentiate it from the Audi GT coupe from which it is derived.
The 0 to 100 km/h time is 7.1 seconds, and the top speed is 222 km/h.
