Ah well, this could vary from country to country.
At least in Holland the cq was (afaik) only av. with the 2226cc non-Torsen.

Talking about strange/rare Audis:
Did you guys know that in '83 there was a Coupe in Germany available with a
4-cil 1.6 engine??
It's not a GT but it was called 'Coupe GL' (till '84, from '85 it was called
just plain 'Coupe')
There were only 992 made, so they're quit rare. Ok, the question is: do you
want one? I would!! (because of it's rarity).

That's why my daily driver is an '85 4-cil 1.8 Coupe (GL) which of course
never made it to the US.

The CGL isn't that rare, but I've never seen one with the '85-style bumpers
like the CGT. All the GL's I've ever seen are pre-85's.

Funny all those different variations of enginetypes.
