The Evolution of Quattro [AWD] - History Lesson
4 Attachment(s)
No sure if you were aware of this history, but [B]the origin of the performance Subaru cars we love actually came from VW[/B], back in the time tunnel.

Audi started with the VW Iltis jeep drivetrain [Canadian Military had them until just recently] to make their first Quattro Coupe (1980) which immediately outclassed any FWD and RWD autos in Rally to dominate the sport for a decade.

[B]Our fabulous WRX/STi's were developed through off-road competiton on the WRC circuit to challenge the Quattro Coupe for Rally supremacy.[/B] They did pretty well, I may add.

Surprisingly, Citroen has the most WRC Driver's champions by constructor at 9, Subaru has 3 and Audi only 2.
