#ThrowbackThursday - The Audi 100!

The Audi 100 was manufactured in 1968 through to 1994. Its name originally denoting a power output of 100PS, the Audi 100 was the company’s largest car!

 Audi followed up the introduction of the four door saloon in November of 1968 with a two-door saloon in October 1969 and the 100 Coupé S in autumn 1970. The cars had a 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine which came in a base 79hp version and a 99hp version. The Coupé was however driven by a bored-out 1.9 litre delivering 113hp.

 Starting with the 1972 model year, older versions were replaced by a new regular petrol-variant of the 1.8 litre engine developing 84hp. In March 1971 the 500,000th Audi was produced and by now, the Audi 100 has become the most commercially successful model in the company’s history.

 The restyled C2 Audi 100 was launched in 1976, with an in-line five-cylinder engine. It was initially a 100 PS engine offering "six-cylinder power and four-cylinder economy", and later upgraded to 136 PS. The Coupé was discontinued, but a five-door hatchback model, the 100 Avant, was launched in August 1977 as part of this generation.

 At the end of September 1977, the Audi 100 became the manufacturer's first model to reach a production level of 1,000,000 units. The millionth Audi 100 was a hatchback Audi 100 Avant assembled not at the company's main Ingolstadt plant, but to the west, at the Neckarsulm factory. Outside of North America, engines included ranges of a 1.6 litre producing 84hp up to a 2.1 litre with 168hp.  

 In 1982 the Audi 100 C3 came along which had an aerodynamic look. The increased aerodynamic efficiency resulted in better fuel economy. The design was in contrast from the boxy shape of the C2.

 Audi then released the C4 (a heavily revised C3) in late 1990 in. The major change for the C4 was the introduction of a 2.8L, 90-degree, SOHC 12v, V6 engine. It was later joined by a 2.6L variant, of the same configuration as the 2.8L unit.

 The C4 continued until early 1997, when it was then replaced by the all-new A6 that we know today!
