Quattro

The Audi Quattro was a road and rally car developed by German car manufacturer Audi, which was produced from 1980 to 1991. best known as the fire spitting rally car from the 1980's that completely re -wrote the rule-book for rally cars to come and inspired future Audi models. In 1980, when Hunt and his team transferred to Fenchurch East in London, he replaced his Ford Cortina with an Audi Quattro which he was more careful towards compared to his Cortina.

AnachromismsEdit

  • The Audi Quattro was not available in right-hand drive until 1983.
  • Two red 1983 Audi Quattro's were used during filming, the original used on series one did not have a sunroof, for series 2 a second 'stunt car' was used which did have a sunroof,(this second car was written off during filming of the stunt sequence for episode one of series three) for continuity purposes the original car was fitted with a fake sunroof for filming. Sunroofs were of course not available on the Audi Quattro 1980 model.

FateEdit

The Quattro was destroyed whilst protecting Gene Hunt and Alex Drake against oncoming gunfire from Dutch gangsters. Before the new arrival appeared in CID, Hunt was reading a catalogue for the new Mercedes-Benz 190D. (A2A Series 3: Episode 8)

Behind the scenesEdit

The phrase "Fire up the Quattro!" acquired a certain cult status in Britain during the run of Ashes to Ashes, and still has a nostalgic cachet.
