Dominating the rally world in recent years has been one name - Audi Quattro. This revolutionary high performance coupe has been an outstanding success from every standpoint. It is a machine rich in technological innovation which can fairly be said to have changed the fortunes and image of its manufacturer from a staid but worthy car maker to the producer of imaginative machinery which is as admired as any in the world of high performance motoring. This is the story of the Audi Quattro. From the early antecedents to the success of winning the manufacturer's world title in 1982 and beyond to the latest model this book recounts the fascinating story of this remarkable car. Through some inspired decisions and the clever use of proprietory components culled from a variety of sources within their existing range, Audi have created a legend in modern driving. With its four-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2.2 litre five-cylinder engine packaged in a functional four-seater bodyshell, the Quattro has been acclaimed by many as one of the world's greatest cars. On the rally trail it has proved staggeringly successful and earned both respect and affection from those star drivers who have come into contact with this high performance machine. But unlike many cars proved on the circuit the Audi Quattro is also praised by the motorist who wants a practical car with high performance capability for use on the public highway and this aspect Alan Henry, who writes regularly for Motor Sport, explores in this book. It is a splendid tale of innovation and expertise both on and off the rally circuit that tells the story of a machine that has set the trend for future high performance cars.
