“Right…Let’s Fire Up the Quattro!”
Audi is a make I’m ambivalent about, neither love it like Jaguar nor hate it like BMW. The Audi Quattro was an iconic car which took the idea of the Jensen FF and had a sports car with four wheel drive. The Audi Quattro was the first car to take advantage of the change in rally rules to allow four wheel drive cars into the competition. Audi subsequently dominated the rally scene for the following two seasons.
I have fourteen Audis in my collection. Three of the iconic Quattros, one Corgi, one Welly and one Matchbox, I have eight versions of the R8, it is a good car with which to compare diecast brands, an A1 (Majorette), a TT (Matchbox) and a Matchbox RS6 Avant.

The four ringed Audi logo has lost a ring on this Chinese model.
