While it is unconfirmed, some say that this specific car was the first Audi to ever land in India. Shastri's Audi was the third-gen Audi100 which went on sale internationally around 1982. A rear-wheel-drive car that was designed with aerodynamics in mind and offered a drag coefficient of only 0.30. Over the next few years, the new nomenclature swapped the Audi 100 with the Audi A6 which currently sells across the world, including India.
