Audi has managed to sell 6 million cars with quattro all-wheel drive system. As you may have read, the quattro system was unveiled for the first time in 1980 and since then there have been approximately 170 different vehicles (including body styles, engine and transmission versions) equipped with this great all-wheel drive system.

The anniversary model is a mansoon gray metallic SQ5 3.0 TDI quattro which was bought by an unnamed customer in the United States. 

"Dynamism and sportiness, the utmost technical precision and safety – that’s what Audi’s quattro technology stands for. More than 30 years ago, it was recognized as a pioneering accomplishment; today, it is synonymous with technical progress", said Dr. Hubert Waltl, Audi's Board Member for Production. 

Audi has sold 6 million cars with quattro system
Only in 2013, Audi produced a total of 710,095 vehicle with quattro all-wheel drive system. At the two German factories in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, a total of about 2,000 Audi models with quattro roll off the production lines every day. 

"Our colleagues’ expertise in the field of all-wheel drive is impressive; it demonstrates our ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ and thus makes an important contribution to the brand’s image. Without our qualified and flexible team, this milestone would not have been possible in such a short time", says Peter Mosch, Chairman of Audi’s General Works Council.
