"ur" is a German prefix meaning "original".  The ur-quattro is the original 

When it came out, it was the only quattro - hence "quattro" was enough.  In the 
UK, "I drive a quattro" still has a unique meaning - an ur-quattro.

On this list, "quattro" seems to mean any Audi with AWD.

We "real" quattro owners don't mind, though.  At least, not much.
