The quattro GmbH has embodied high-performance and high-tech at Audi since 1983. It develops and builds the RS and R8 models, individualizes automobiles, provides accessories and presides over customer motorsport. Heinz Hollerweger has been Managing Director since 2014.
The quattro GmbH portfolio currently contains eight models: RS Q3, RS 3 Sportback, RS 4 Avant, RS 5 and RS 5 Cabriolet, RS 6 Avant, RS 7 Sportback and the R8. The company based in Neckarsulm delivered more than 15,000 cars last year. The strongest sales regions for the high-performance models are Germany, Great Britain, Switzerland and Italy.
quattro GmbH is also active in the field of automobile personalization. Audi exclusive offers the widest range among the competition – there are 100 exterior and 16 interior Audi-exclusive colors, in the compact car segment almost 800 versions of the A1 can be realized through personalization. In 2009, the number of personalized automobiles was still around 100,000, the quantity has since grown to more than 180,000. In addition, quattro GmbH sells around 2.5 million accessories annually.
The Audi R8 rolls from the assembly line in the Böllinger Höfe since autumn 2014. In the new manufacturing halls, body construction and assembly of the super sports car are united under one roof. As a result, Audi has optimized the production processes and further expanded the low-volume expertise at the Neckarsulm site.
The Audi Sport customer racing motorsport program, the fourth pillar of quattro GmbH, has been resident in Neuburg an der Donau since 2015. Customers on four continents trust the Audi R8 LMS for its proven reliability and speed as GT3 race car. quattro GmbH is also well equipped for the future in a tough competitive environment with the new model, which will be tested in 2015 before being made available to customers in 2016.
