Where Audi Supercars are Born

In the latest episode of "The Downshift" the crew over MotorTrend took a trip to Quattro GmbH, the birthplace of the the RS3, RS4, RS5, RS6 and R8. Since 1983, Audi’s go-fast factory has been taking Audi sedans to the extreme and in 2006 it unveiled the R8, which has quickly become one of the worlds most sought after supercars.

The factory was founded in October 1983 and it is located on a 3,500-square-meter site in Neckarsulm, near Stuttgart, Germany. The factory specializes in producing high-performance Audi cars and components, and its name pays homage to Audi’s original four-wheel-drive, rally-inspired road car: the Audi Quattro.
