The Audi Quattro is a prominent figure in automotive history. First introduced in 1981, the Audi Quattro would revolutionize rally racing; and subsequently the trajectory of production car technology. It was the first rally car to effectively and reliably use all-wheel drive and would go on to to be a benchmark for future cars fitted with such a drivetrain. This inaugural generation of the Quattro is often referred to as ‘Ur-Quattro’. The “Ur-” is a prefix derived from the German word for ‘original’, therefore denoting in its entirety, ‘The Original Quattro’.
