The Quattro four wheel drive configuration for the Audi 200 Quattro was one of Audi's success stories, helping pull Audi out of the hole caused by the Sudden Acceleration problem of the mid 80's. Powered by a 2.2 liter turbocharged straight five, this smooth engine produced 164 hp to all wheels. Audi added a 20 valve 220 hp version in 1991, which included flared wheel arches and wider wheels and tires to the already potent mix of specific Audi 200 Quattro parts. The Quattro system was one of the first to successfully work in a high volume production car, and is widely copied today by most other high end marques. It is not an off-road system; instead, it distributes power to the wheels that need it most, vastly improving traction and control during inclement weather and spirited performance driving.
The Audi 200 Quattro became the icon for Audi's performance revival in the late 80's, led chiefly by the Trans Am team under the care of Bob Tullius's Group 44 Racing. This car impressed the world with the extreme handling characteristics, and even though he turbo 5 cylinder motor put out as many or more ponies than the competitor's V8's, it was the Quattro system that both impressed and frightened the race community (and sold cars on Monday). After taking 8 out of the 13 wins their inaugural season, The SCCA, listening to cry babies on other teams with conventional race cars, changed the rules to allow only two wheel drive cars with American engines. So Audi took its show over to IMSA, where it continued to dominate.
