in short, it is no longer a permanent 4WD, but something like FWD with 4WD on demand.
Based on what I have read, Audi won't use Quattro Ultra for S or RS cars.
I still can't find any conclusive evidence that this is the case, but it certainly seems so, which is good.
Depending on model, it will be available with both DSG auto and manual gearboxes, and with certain engines only. The system is currently designed to work with engines producing maximum torque below 370lb ft or so, meaning that RS variants and certain other engines will stick with developments of the current Torsen system. |
Transverse-engined Audis – A3, A1, TT and so on – continue with their current systems for the time being, developed by VW rather than Audi.
