Audi Sport Quattro in the car podcast |

That’s why this angular Audi was so expensive

We’re celebrating an anniversary!

As a special treat, we have chosen a real rally legend for the 50th episode – the Audi Sport quattro.

Episode 50: Audi Sport quattro

The S1 became famous with Walter Röhrl at the wheel. More than 35 years later we drive the street version of which only 224 were built.

In 1985, the Sport quattro cost over DM 200,000, twice as expensive as a Porsche 911 Turbo.

But how impressive does the 306 hp feel today and is the “short” really as legendary as its reputation?

We clarify that and much more in the Anniversary episode of “First drive, then talk”: Wherever there are podcasts – and of course here at BILD!

The Sport quattro was 32 centimeters shorter than the mass-produced Quattro.  To save weight, plastics were used for the body instead of sheet metal

The core:

The heart: a five-cylinder with four-valve technology, fully electronic injection and turbocharger. A technical feat at the time

It’s “drive first, talk later”

One car, two editors: The AUTO BILD podcast can be summarized as easily as that. We, the editors Peter Fischer and Jan Götze, test a not always everyday car and then go into detail.

Do we like the design? How good is the processing? What did we notice while driving? In addition to important aspects such as design, technology, processing quality and driving performance, completely subjective points are also discussed.

How is the image of the car? What will we remember for a long time? What might have been annoying? And very important: who should actually buy this car?

There are answers to all these questions and more every Wednesday in the AUTO BILD podcast “First drive, then talk”.
