Golden brown texture like sun
Lays me down with my might she runs
Throughout the night
No need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown finer temptress
Through the ages she’s heading west
From far away
Stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

Never a frown
With golden brown
Never a frown
With golden brown

The Audi Quattro is a road and rally car, produced by the German automobile manufacturer Audi, now part of the Volkswagen Group. It was first shown at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show on 3 March. Production of the original version continued through 1991.The word quattro is derived from the Italian word for ‘four’. The name has also been used by Audi to refer to the quattro four-wheel-drive system, or any four-wheel-drive version of an Audi model. The original Quattro model is also commonly referred to as the Ur-Quattro – the ‘Ur-‘ (German for ‘primordial’, ‘original’, or ‘first of its kind’) is an augmentative prefix, in this case meaning ‘original’, and is also applied to the first generation Audi S4 and Audi S6 models, as in ‘Ur-S4’ and ‘Ur-S6’.

The series tells the story of Alex Drake (played by Keeley Hawes), a policewoman in service with the London Metropolitan Police, who is shot in 2008 by a man called Arthur Layton, and inexplicably regains consciousness in 1981.

The 80’s are back and it’s criminal.

DCI Gene Hunt: My reputation precedes me.

DCI Gene Hunt: Fire up the Quattro.

DI Alex Drake: [Gene has just solved the case] Oh, I could kiss you!
DCI Gene Hunt: Don’t hold back.

The Audi Quattro used by Gene Hunt was not available for sale in the UK in 1981. He would have had to order it from continental Europe, thus it would probably be left-hand drive. This is acknowledged to in the extras, which speculate that Hunt could have gotten the car as “a dodgy import.”


What 80’s make of computer, is on DCI Hunt’s desk.
