| Volkswagen Iltis ЧThe Volkswagen Type 183, more commonly known as the Iltis (German for polecat), is a military vehicle built by Volkswagen for use by the German military. |
Prior to the advent of the Type 181, the German military had purchased several thousand vehicles of the Munga , a light jeep manufactured by DKW , but production of the Munga had ended in 1968. Volkswagen had then consolidated the former Auto Union marques into a single company, re-using the Audi name to designate vehicles manufactured by the company rather than continuing to manufacture vehicles under the names of the various brands that had made up the original Auto Union.
The vehicle, developed by Audi , featured a variation of the Munga's platform with newly modified suspension components, a four-wheel-drive system based around components from the Audi 100 . The design of this four-wheel drive system provided the basis for Audi's Quattro system, which debuted four years later, in 1980, on the original Audi Quattro .
