Five-millionth Audi with quattro all-wheel drive rolls-off the assembly line at Neckarsulm

Audi has just proved that there really is safety in numbers by producing its five-millionth quattro all-wheel-drive-equipped model - an A6 allroad. The rugged, air-suspended Avant is just one of over 140 variants across the Audi range currently
benefiting from this invaluable all-weather grip enhancer, which made the pioneering transition from rally stage to road courtesy of the Vorsprung durch Technik brand back in the Eighties.

"quattro is one of the key pillars of our brand and has been a critical factor in our successful history," said Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG. "The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system makes it possible to directly experience our 'Vorsprung durch Technik'. We are committed to our pioneering role and will continue to develop this advantage with new technologies."

Last year, more than 43 per cent of Audi customers opted for the added reassurance of quattro, and the Neckarsulm plant in Germany - home of quattro GmbH - equipped one car in every two on the production line with the technology.
