"The pioneer of full-time 4-wheel drive systems that changed the standards of cars."
The Audi quattro was indeed the right car at the right time when it was introduced in 1980. The rally world had just gone to full-time 4WD (or all-wheel-drive), and nearly all the world's car makers were developing their own all-wheel-drive systems. Audi beat them to the punch. To be fair, the first all-wheel-drive car was a British Jensen FF, but because it was a niche vehicle with limited production, it wasn't as influential as the Audi.
What pushed Audi to develop all-wheel-drive was that it was experiencing difficulty transferring big power to only two wheels on its WRC race car. Therefore, the decision to go to all-wheel-drive from front-wheel-drive was made. The first generation quattro came with a turbocharged 2.1-liter inline-5 that produced 200 HP. With the gearbox included within the central differential, it couldn't yet allow for torque management between the front and rear, but it had overwhelming power transferred evenly between the four wheels.
The AWD system made the quattro larger and heavier than its rivals, but the extra traction and grip provided by the system more than compensated for the extra weight, and the Audi was a force to be reckoned with on the dirt or road. With the development of several new mechanisms, Audi reigned as the leader in all-wheel-drive technology, and the rest of the world followed suit.
