Video: Audi releases first part of quattro documentary

Audi has created a quattro documentary to tell the story of how its legendary all-wheel drive system came to life.

The first part of the clip talks about who invented the hardware and also about the origins of the “quattro” moniker.

It should be mentioned that up until recently Audi used the “quattro” terminology not just for its all-wheel drive system, but also for its performance division. However, the Ingolstadt-based marque now wants to separate the two by keeping “quattro” strictly for AWD and using “Audi Sport” to denote the models that come out from the firm’s department in charge of fast cars.

Check out the video below to find out some important facts about the history of Audi’s quattro.
