Audi is of celebration as already have sold 8 millions of cars with traction quattro. The four rings brand has reached this milestone in the new factory of Chiapa de San José (Mexico) where the new Audi Q5 is occurring.

We can see this standard on models such as the Audi Q7, the Audi A4 allroad quattro, Audi A6 allroad quattro, Audi A8 or the Audi R8.
But not it stays there the thing, because we also find the quattro traction in all models of the S and RS series, the more sporty. Also offered as an option on other models in the range. Such is the importance of this drive which was present in 44% of the sales of the brand by 2015. Only the Audi Q5 has sold 262,000 units and its main markets are the United States, Canada, Russia and Middle East.

For example, for those with transverse engine used a hydraulic multi-disc clutch electronically controlled in the rear hub. For its part, in the Audi R8 with the multiplate clutch central engine is in the front axle. In any case this system distributes the torque between both axes to make a behavior optimal
