Let’s take a huge step back into 1980 when the Audi Quattro was shown to the world and all Audi cars lovers for the first time. All the people who attended the Motor Show in Geneva back then had a wonderful privilege to see this car’s appearance for the first time in public. This fantastic car was apparently produced by the German big manufacturer Audi. I am sure you want to find out something about its features, characteristics, advantages and so on.
What are Audi Quattro’s essential characteristics?
Do you want to know what does the word “Quattro’’ stand for? Well, as you may assume, this is a word from Italian language (it means “four’’), and first of all, it represents the system of 4 wheels. If you haven’t been paying attention, this big manufacturer has been using this method for making all of its great cars for a very long time. The Audi Quattro is also known as Ur-Quattro, and the meaning of this word is related to the words “original,” “unique’’ etc.
Now, let’s say something about its essential characteristics. As we stated before, the year of production is 1980, but the year of this car’s original version turns out to be 1991. It was made in Ingolstadt – the city in Germany by the famous designers: Walter Treser, Martin Smith, Franz Tengler and others. It is a rally car which has two doors and people simply love it.
How does this car work?
We have already mentioned this, but we have to say it one more time. This Audi car uses the system of 4 wheels, and the effort of the front wheels is bigger than the rear wheels. The clothes in the set-up stand between the prop shaft and the gearbox, while the other pair stands on the axle at the back of the car. You may never know this, but the layout of the old Quattro was about 4 kilograms harder than the new one.
There is one more interesting fact about this system that you need to hear. It uses thousands of detecting sensors which are made for different developments. Also, these handsome sensors can supply some information about the Audi Quattro’s driver and its style.
For the very end, I believe you all want to hear about the fuel saving. Well, the tests show that this car can save for about 7 grams per kilometer. I hope you enjoyed this massive throwback to the time of this fantastic car.
