Audi Quattro

Wander through the amazing Audi Tradition premises while learning about the development of the iconic, rally-destroying Audi Quattro.

“Turbo of the very old school. First you have nothing, then you get a beat as if somebody hit your trunk. Off you go and hit the rev counter twice before you’re about at a hundred.”

To say that the Audi company historian who presents this video is knowledgeable is an understatement of the highest order. Full of intense detail and awesome stories, he’s entertaining and fascinating. In this excellent video from Carfection he takes us through the development of Audi Quattro and the rally legends that proved its potency, from the DKW Munga through to two drivers’ and two manufacturers’ World Rally Championships.

It’s full of interesting technical insights, driving and handling notes, tales from behind the scenes and stories from that most magic period of rally racing, including some great and fascinating moments from Group B and Pikes Peak. Hit play, and enjoy.
