The name quattro was used by Audi to refer to the quattro four-wheel-drive system, or any four-wheel drive version of an Audi model.

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 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 Audi Quattro was the first car to have a four-wheel drive system combined with a turbocharged engine.

The original engine was the 2,144cc (131 cubic inch) inline 5 cylinder with a ten valve single overhead cam, along with a turbocharger and intercooler. It produces 197 horsepower and torque of 210 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm. This propels the Quattro from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.1 seconds and it can reach a top speed of over 220 km/h (137 mph).

Quattro car production was 11,452 vehicles from 1980-1991. Through this 11 year production span, with only minimal updates, there were no major changes in the visual design of the vehicle. Only 652 were imported to North America.

This example spent the first 20 years of its life in Canada before being imported to the United States. It is in original, unrestored condition.
