The Audi Quattro is the top-of-the-range version of the Audi GT Coupe which in turn was the sports variant of the Audi 80 B2, this version is a sports car produced by the German manufacturer Audi between 1980 and 1991. It was the first car to use four-wheel drive after the 1966 Jensen FF and one of the most successful rally cars in history.
Since 1981, the golden age of Group 4, the Audi Quattro, standard bearer of the concept of all-wheel drive, had not stopped conquering victories in the World Rally Championship. With the arrival of Group B, the Audi Quattro in their A1 and A2 evolutions continued to be very competitive until the entry into the scene of more modern rivals such as the Peugeot 205 T16 or the Lancia Delta S4. In addition, the constant increase in power and the terrible weight distribution made the Quattro an unsafe and unreliable car, especially for its tendency to understeer. In 1984 the Audi Sport Quattro debuted at the Corsica Rally, a new vehicle developed from the old Audi Quattro A2.
The biggest challenge for Audi technicians was to solve the lousy weight distribution of the obsolete Quattro, since 60% of the weight of the vehicle fell on the front axle, turning it into a dangerous understeer. To solve it, the engineers moved the water and oil radiators, the batteries and the alternator to the rear of the vehicle. In this way the weight distribution was almost perfect 51/49, and space was freed up under the saturated hood. To further improve the maneuverability of the car the wheelbase was cut 320 mm, which coupled with the concentration of masses at the ends made it a delicate car to drive in fast areas.
