The Audi Quattro is a road and rally car, produced by the German automobile
manufacturer Audi, now part of the Volkswagen Group. It was first shown at
the 1980 Geneva Motor Show on 3 March.
The word quattro is derived from the Italian word for "four". The name has
also been used by Audi to refer to the quattro four-wheel-drive system, or
any four-wheel-drive version of an Audi model. To avoid confusion, the
original Quattro model is also commonly referred to as the Ur-Quattro - the
"Ur-" (German for "primordial", "original", or "first of its kind") is an
augmentative prefix, in this case meaning "original", and is also applied
to the first generation Audi S4 and Audi S6 models, as in "Ur-S4" and
"Ur-S6" and was known for its legendary sound
The Audi Quattro was the first rally car to take advantage of the
then-recently changed rules which allowed the use of four-wheel drive in
competition racing. It won competition after competition for the next two
years. To commemorate the success of the original vehicle, all
subsequent Audis with their trademark quattro four-wheel-drive system were
badged "quattro" with a lower case "q" and in a distinct typeface which has
remained nearly unchanged since its inception. The original car with the
upper case "Q" in the Quattro name is a collector's piece.
The Audi Quattro shared many parts and core body components with the Audi
Coupé, which was a member of the Audi 80 (B2) model range. The Quattro
was internally designated Typ 85, a production code it shared with the
quattro versions of the Audi Coupé (B2) and Audi 80. Its characteristic
flared wheelarches were styled by Martin Smith. The Audi Quattro also had
independent rear suspension and independent front suspension.
Quattro (meaning four in Italian) is the name used by Audi AG to indicate
that all-wheel drive (AWD) technologies or systems are used on specific
models of the Audi automobiles.
The word "quattro" is a registered trademark of Audi AG, a subsidiary of
the German automotive concern, Volkswagen Group.
Quattro was first introduced in 1980 on the permanent four wheel drive Audi
Quattro (often referred to as the Ur-Quattro - "Ur-" being German for
"ancient" or "great" as in "great-grandfather"). The term quattro has since
been applied to all subsequent Audi AWD models. Due to the nomenclature
rights derived from the trademark, the word quattro is now always spelled
with a lower case "q", in honour of its former namesake.
Other companies in the Volkswagen Group have used different trademarks for
their AWD vehicles. While Audi has always used the term "quattro",
Volkswagen-branded cars initially used "syncro", but more recently, VW uses
"4motion". Škoda simply uses the nomenclature "4x4" after the model name,
whereas SEAT uses merely "4". None of the above trademarks or nomenclatures
defines the operation or type of 4WD system, as detailed below.
quattro generation VI
Audi debuted the 6th generation of quattro in the 2010 RS5. The key change
in generation VI is the replacement of the Torsen Type "C" centre
differential with an Audi-developed "Crown Gear" differential. With the new
"Crown Gear" center differential, up to 70% of the torque can be applied to
the front wheels while up to 85% can be applied to the rear wheels if
necessary. The net result of this advance in quattro is the ability of the
vehicle electronics to fully manage the vehicle dynamics in all traction
situations, whether in cornering, acceleration or braking or in any
combination of these.
The Audi Q7, the platform-mate of the Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche
Cayenne, does not use the same underpinnings of either previous model.
BorgWarner instead provides the 4WD system for this more off-road
appropriate SUV. A Torsen Type 3 (T3) differential is used.

Audi Winter Tyres and Winter Driving
According to Department of Transport road accident statistics winter road
accidents in the UK increase by 267%.
In response, tyre manufacturers have developed specific winter tyres that
are designed to outperform regular tyres in cold weather, when the
temperature drops below 7°C. The unique tread pattern design and softer
rubber of a winter tyre means stopping distances are greatly reduced, while
grip and handling are much improved.
It's why Audi recommends fitting winter tyres this season.
