The thing was that Audi was facing extreme sale crisis in America and also in the other parts of the world. The shock 80% decrease in just 6 years made it very difficult for Audi to generate the revenue. However, there were some improvements in the later versions as the engineers stepped up to add power in the 200. The result was that the engineers managed to shoehorn in the 20 valve DOHC turbo engine which yielded some great results. There came some flared fenders with the modified versions and a 5 speed manual transmission with the second generation Quattro system. The 1983 Audi 200 Turbo had a top speed of 139 mph (224 km/h). However the engine installed in the 200 was a 2.1 L I-5, 136 PS (100 kW; 134 hp), fuel injection (1983−1984).
