1984 Audi Quattro A2

In 1984 Audi modified the A1 with a much more purposeful bodykit and a 2110cc engine with a theoretical displacement of 2954cc with the 1.4 bar turbocharger.

Walter Rohrl started Audi’s most successful year in rally competition by winning in Monte Carlo. Team-mate Stig Blomqvist won the Drivers World Championship title with wins in Sweden, Greece, New Zealand, Argentina and – for the first time in an Audi Sport quattro – the Ivory Coast, proving himself a worthy successor to Hannu Mikkola, who triumphed in Portugal. Audi won the Manufacturers Trophy for the second time.
