    Belt driven with a 2 speed transmission. This car is the further development of the successful 2WD version of the first Serpent model with 4 wheel independent suspention Quattro Mk. IV. The front axle was driven by a belt.
    The 2WD version had severall manners to drive the rear axle, there were different versions: chain, direct drive via gears and belt drive. Through a clever model policy, it was possible to upgrade the vehicle through up-grade kits to 4WD.
    The 4-WD conversion kit no. 4650 can be mounted to all Quattro models. The only modification to models before 1985 is the epoxy radio plate. Models from januari ’85 and on have universal radio plates for both 2-WD and 4-WD. (more…)
