Audi 100 (1968 – 1976) Review

Audi 100 (1968 – 1976) At A Glance


+Thoroughly well engineered saloon, tough, reliable and good to drive

-A bit dull, not exactly rust-resistant

The first Audi 100 was born amid chaos, thanks to parent company Volkswagen’s addiction to the rear-engine. But with the takeover of DKW and NSU, the company had access to some very gifted engineers, fully signed up to front-wheel drive; so even though VW may not have wished it, Audi under lead engineer Ludwig Kraus (nee Daimler-Benz) worked on its new-generation of saloons.

If the 60, 75 and 90 had done much to firmly establish Audi in the middle-market pecking order, it was down to the 100 to convince buyers further up the price scale that the Ingolstadt manufacturer was an alternative to Mercedes-Benz. Its powerful two-litre four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive delivered a sound driving experience, while excellent quality and reliability were a strong selling point.

Fuel Lines

"Where can I get Injector Fuel Lines made for an Audi 100 Quattro 2226cc 1988?"
Companies like Viper Performance ( will make up hoses from all kinds of material. It's worth giving them a call on 01952 670 702 to see if they can help. We did contact a few Audi specialists and clubs on your behalf to see if they had an 'off the shelf' solution, but we're still waiting to hear back. We'll let you know if we hear anything.
