Today I will touch upon a fairly common phenomenon for today - an all-wheel drive passenger car. Although you know, permanent four-wheel drive, even our beloved quattro, is quietly going down in history, yielding to various quattrotrons, heraldexes, quasimodes and other garbage that can be compared to silicone boobs and inflatable women. But nevertheless, four-wheel drive in a passenger car today is quite a normal situation, but 40 years ago, it seemed a very strange decision. But as Anton Palych correctly noted, "Flies separately, cutlets separately." Perhaps the first thing someone thought was "Aha! Again Kostya B. will be nesting about group B.", But no. Today we will unearth an older dinosaur. Remember dad Carlo? I call this car - Papa Quattro (interestingly, both names are Italian). By the way, this is not only Papa Quattro, but also the uncle of Gelik himself, but more on that below. Daddy's real name is Volkswagen Iltis . Translated from German Ferret. And here again, a funny analogy with the surname of August Horch (founder of audi). After all, you could call the car Squirrel - Eichhörnchen, too, after all, an agile bitch. And look how it turns out that it was the ferret (very consonant with the name of the founder of the concern) that gave the distinctive feature of Audi cars, the feature that predetermined the development of the concern for many years. Oh, something I was distracted in the wrong direction. First generation beetle Uncle Fedya Porsche Let's go back to the typewriters. And let's dig even deeper into history. In the 30s, a very bad uncle Adik Furerovich gave an assignment to his favorite and great friend, Professor Ferdinand Porsche - to make a people's car (No kidding - I don't even know if it's worth comparing with Lada Granta?), Available to every resident of a great and terrible country. In order for residents to have something to go around their possessions, somewhere in the captured Polish province, it is not possible to go there on foot. What came out of this story? This is how the first Volkswagen Beetle was born. Then something terrible happened. The war broke out and the motorized units of the Wehrmacht needed many, many vehicles. For these purposes, on the basis of the beetle, an army off-road vehicle was built with the nickname Kübel Wagen, literally "a car-tub" ( Volkswagen Typ 82 ). There was little in common in appearance. BUT the layout and the knots were common. Rear motor and drive. Just like a Zaporozhets. Bad luck. Typ87 could be the star of Paris-Dakar Also, on the basis of the beetle, the Volkswagen Typ 87 was created . This time, the body is taken from the original beetle. The car had an all-wheel drive transmission, big wheels with serious tread, swollen fenders, a kind of Quattro's Grandfather and Allroad's great-grandfather! At least now at the Paris-Dakar rally! Judging by rare photographs, the car was very actively used in the African theater, participating in something like modern rallies, where the main prize was life. Mr. Rommel maneuvered with his small army through the desert like a squadron at sea and appeared in the most unexpected places and at the most unsuitable moment for the British allies. But the main passenger vehicle in the army was still Kübelvagen (Volkswagen Typ 82) . So. The war is over. The enemies were defeated and put to shame. Typ181 is not handsome After the war, the Volkswagen Typ 181/182 (and 182, this is right-hand drive), created on the basis of the Typ82, came to replace the Typewriter- Lokhanka. The car was used not only in the army, but also supplied to the civilian market. Like the beetle, the machine turned out to be very cheap and successful and was produced even in Mexico and Indonesia right up to the 1980s. Of course, you cannot compare with a beetle, but the old man's longevity is still amazing. And so we smoothly crept up to the hero of our today's story. Quattro and Daddy Quattro By the end of the 70s, it became clear that the machine no longer complies with euro norms and the design of the enemies brings a smile of time. And it was decided to develop a new wheelbarrow for the army, and it is clear that for the civilian market too. A kind of patrol jeep, so that in case of anything it would be convenient to run from the Soviet Army to Cape Roca in Spain, and then immediately into the water. The task was quite clear - overcoming slopes of at least 60 degrees and water obstacles of at least half a meter, a carrying capacity of half a ton, well, and a speed of at least 100 km / hour (well, this is to take away more junk with you as you waste away). Maximum unification with civilian vehicles, reducing the cost of production and operation. Despite the acceptance of the square-brutal-ugly design (it seems scary, but you can't scare the enemies) with the Typ82 and Typ181, the car received a completely different design. By the way, if you look into our beloved ETKA , you can see that Typ181 and Iltis are in the same category. By the way, this means that you can still buy some tripe with these oldies. This time, the increasingly popular Volkswagen Golf was taken as a donor. You can even come up with a riddle. Where did the ferret come from? He went out of his sock! Deserved victory in Paris-Dakar 1980 The vehicle received the Typ183 index . And the name Iltis is a ferret. The independent suspension of all wheels is the same for both the front and rear. And of course the all-wheel drive, which was not on the predecessors. How without him? Locking front and rear differentials. There was no demultiplier, but there was a super-low gear - "G". I ask you not to be confused with what you might have thought. This is G-gelandegangen, "down". Could only be used with a connected front axle. What? Did he not have permanent four-wheel drive? Was the Quattro dad rear-wheel drive? That's right, the front axle was connected as needed. By the way, this was a complete revelation for me. This business was carried by a diesel engine 1.6 70 horses and a gasoline 1.7 75 horses. And then an interesting moment emerges. "Knowledgeable" people like to say that four-wheel drive in a passenger car is needed only for engines with more than 200 horsepower. And if less, then the motor is very hard. Judging by the fact that ferrets are still quite running along the path, the guys got excited about 200 horses. But the then engineers did not hear about modern experts with their "200 horses", and the result of their labors was the victory in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1980! By the way, the power supply of the on-board network was brought to NATO standards - 24 volts. I am writing this if you, my friend, buy Iltis and decide to turn on your favorite car electric shaver. Another interesting point is the maximum speed in the region of 130 km / h. And it is by no means caused by the "short box", but by the aerodynamics of the brick. The air resistance of the Ferret already at 130 km is simply hellish. As time went. The NATO members realized that they were not afraid of enemies from the union of their ferrets. Therefore, he was replaced by no less worthy, terrible and terrible, the favorite car of bandits and golden youth - GelendWagen. Mercedes Benz G-Klasse. But it would be funny if Iltis, not G-klasse, became a cult car for our lads. Can you imagine this cool sight of a motorcade of graduates of an elite educational institution of 50 ferrets? But that's a completely different story! Stop, stop. Somewhere I ran away to the wrong steppe again. Why Papa Quattro? Let's rewind the cassette. In the winter of 76-77, Audi tested new cars in the mountains of snowy Sweden. Powerful in-line fives with 170 power output. The beauty! But none of these beauties could keep up with the small predator, the power of which was some 75 horses. It was all about the all-wheel drive system, which was also very successful, because it was developed by some of the best engineers of the century. "Let's take a straight-five and stick it with four-wheel drive, like the VW Iltis? But let's make the four-wheel drive not disconnectable." "Come on." And the job was done. The competitors laughed. But we all know who has the last laugh. And we also know what this story turned into. But now this is definitely a completely different story! And now, according to tradition, I propose to stop by our virtual circuit. You to understand what his "serious" dynamics, here's a couple of races: the VW Iltis the VS the VW Käfer the VW Iltis the VS the Audi 200 (FWD) in normal conditions in the here and the Russian winter arrived, until we read the text: And that's what can VW Iltis in winter in severe snowfall against a powerful, turbo, but front-wheel drive Audi You look at the diagram - well, it's a real audi quattro And here's what it looks like inside, I say the same quattro Old auditors will find familiar pictures on this Spartan panel. Take off your wig, I recognized you Still, there is little brutality in it, but the price for such tends to a very high amount. By the way, how do you like the all-wheel drive beetle? I would look at this competition Here he is so interesting - Iltis. Would you like one like this? I am.
