Quattro, ur-quattro and TQC?

I always thought that ur-quattro and TQC were other names for the car 
 known (in the UK anyway) as the Audi Quattro.  I thought that these 
 cars had the following: Coupe body, 4 wheel drive, 2144cc (initially) 
 turbo engine with about 200hp, flared wheel arches, wide Ronal wheels 
 (>6"), 4 square headlamps initially, then 2 flat rectangular, then 
 (1984) 2 sloping to match the new grille, etc..

Could you give more info on the differences between these cars (with 
 perhaps years, engine cc and hp and running gear differences)?
