40 years, 40 figures, 40 images: fascinating facts and tales about Audi’s quattro technology
11 degrees was the steering angle the engineers chose for the rear wheels in an experimental all-wheel steering design in a quattro prototype in 1984. Today, top Audi models such as the RS 6 Avant are equipped with dynamic all-wheel steering upon request. At low speeds, it turns the rear wheels a maximum of 5 degrees in the opposite direction to make maneuvering and parking easier, for example. At higher speeds, it turns them up to 2 degrees in the same direction in order to increase stability when changing lanes quickly, for example.
