The 100 was the first Audi car sold in the US. The 100 line of cars was produced all the way from 1968 through 1994. When most collectors think of the Audi 100, however, they are referring to the first generation cars, built between 1968 and 1976. The first 100s were front-wheel drive sedans with 4-cylinder, 112-horsepower engines. They came with a four-speed manual or automatic transmission on a short, sturdy chassis.
The first generation Audi 100s came in seven different variant and trim levels, plus a fastback coupe and sedan version in the U.S. Models in the states had power ranged from 90-115 horsepower. They switched from natural carburetion to fuel injection in 1975, as well as adding safety bumpers, to meet US emissions and safety standards.
The earliest 100s used a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 1871 cm3 or 114.3 cubic inches. It had an advertised power of 84.5 kW / 113 hp / 115 PS with a torque measured at 159 Nm / 117 lb-ft. The top speed was 185 km/h (115 mph) as declared by the factory. It could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 9.5 seconds, and go from 0-100 km/h in 10 seconds. Its 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 17.6 seconds.
Because they were such a reliable and practical car, they were often used by the police in Europe. They were painted with a two-toned paint job and a flashing light was added to the roof.
The car was so popular that sales reached 800,000 globally and 300,000 units sold in the US. However, since they were a relatively inexpensive car, people ran them until they wore out and did not bother restoring them. According to Hemmings, less than 1000 of these cars exist in the US today.
