Audi SQ5 Tdi GrilleAudi innovate; typically backed up with motorsport success for a given technology that is being developed that will make it's way into road cars that "Joe Bloggs" can buy and drive.

Audi started this in 1980 with the quattro system- and it took several years (some would say "too many") before quattro was available with a diesel engine- tending to be reserved for use in the higher performance cars- which in turn then spawned the S and -eventually- the RS models. The RS model was once akin to the "holy grail"- limited numbers, blistering performance and an enhanced specification package to suit.
