The Audi Quattro would go on to win several more competitions throughout the course of its first two years.

The Audi Quattro shares many of the same characteristics as the Audi Coupé.

The Audi Quattro was first sold in North America in the year 1983. The models sold were identical to the European models of 1982. Audi Quattros continued to be sold in the United States of America and Canada until the year 1986, at which point they were discontinued.
