1968-1976 AUDI 100 (C1) specifications Classic and Performance Car

If the 60, 75 and 90 had done much to firmly establish Audi in the middle-market pecking order, it was down to the 100 to convince buyers further up the price scale that the Ingolstadt manufacturer was an alternative to Mercedes-Benz. Its powerful two-litre ‘four’ and front-wheel drive delivered a sound driving experience, while excellent quality and reliability were a nice contrast to the Rover and Triumph opposition. However, despite the upsides Audi was still seen by many as the new kid on the block.
