The "short" quattro is a legend in the history of
rallying. Rally racing ascended to new heights in the 1984 season. The competitors exploited the very liberal regulations at that time in Group B to enter mid-engine cars that were pure race cars with only a visual resemblance to production models. Audi also considered a similar concept. A prototype was developed but
then put back on ice.

Audi RS Moments of Truth - 1983: quattro
Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic
short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral
proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had
on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of Audi quattro and the advantage that four-wheel
drive technology afforded Audi race teams in the early 1980s on the FIA
World Rally Championship circuit. Audi driver and WRC Champion Hannu
Mikkola tells the story of his win at the 1983 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland
-- a grueling race full of big-air jumps and hairpin turns. Audi quattro

Audi quattro® TV Commercial - "Ahab" (60s)
Over 30 years ago, Audi pioneered permanent four-wheel drive with Audi
quattro®. Today it's the world's top selling AWD system. But sadly for one
tormented soul, its legacy is more a source of humiliation than
celebration. Inspired by one of the all-time classics in American
literature, Audi re-imagines Herman Melville's epic struggle between
obsessed sea captain and elusive white whale to bring the legend of
quattro® to life.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
