Over 20 years ago, Audi brought all-wheel drive to the sports car market with the Audi
quattro.

The Audi quattro did not use a transfer case like the other all-wheel or four-wheel drive
vehicles of its time. Instead, a central differential was added to the 016 5-speed manual
transmission. This design was much lighter than a transfer case.

Three separate differentials were used in the Audi quattro so that each wheel could turn at
its own speed when cornering. This reduced power loss and tire life by minimizing “tire
scrub.”

The all-wheel drive system offered the same advantages back then as it does today:

  • Traction on slippery surfaces
  • High speed stability
  • Traction on steep hills
  • Excellent stability under load change conditions

The next page outlines some of the major racing milestones that quattro has achieved.
