Welcome to the Land of quattro

Land of quattro

Challenge. Accepted.

First debuting in 1980, the Audi quattro all-wheel drive system changed the motoring world. Not only did this technology allow us to completely dominate international motorsport, it also became the first permanent all-wheel drive system designed for passenger vehicles. To date, we’ve sold more than 6 million quattro cars, making us the world’s most successful premium maker of all-wheel drive vehicles. Proof of ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ , quattro is the perfect companion if your journey takes you to treacherous landscapes, demanding race tracks or even to the moon.
