Audi Builds Five Millionth Vehicle With Quattro All-Wheel Drive

33 years ago the first Audi with a quattro all-wheel drive was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. The Audi quattro, a coupé with a boxy shape and 200bhp was planned for only low-volume production, but high demand led to success and it remained in the model lineup with different upgrades until 1991.

Today the quattro all-wheel drive is available throughout the whole model range and recently the five millionth Audi with a quattro drive system rolled off the assembly line at the Neckarsulm plant. The special celebration car is a white Audi A6 allroad 3.0 TDI.

For full details about the history of quattro all-wheel drive take a look at the press release below.
