In The Living Daylights (1987), James Bond (Timothy Dalton) can be seen driving two Audi cars. The most prominent one is a (at that time) brand new Audi 200 Quattro which he drives while in Bratislava. Later in the film we see Bond in an Audi 200 Avant Quattro in Tangier, Morocco.

Audi 200 Quattro
The Audi 200 Quattro car belongs to Station V, Vienna, and Bond uses the car to get General Georgi Koskov (Jeroen Krabbé) out of Bratislava.

Bond's car has the highest available trim ("Exclusiv") and very nice BBS split-rim wheels. The "Exclusiv" trim was the most expensive Audi ever built until 1988, when the Audi V8 was introduced. The Quattro label reveals that this car has permanent four-wheel drive.

The Audi 200 used in the movie with the Vienna registration W207.182 is sometimes on display, but usually kept in the storage facility at Audi Tradition in Audi's hometown Ingolstadt, but that collection is not open to the public.

A 1:43 model of the Audi 200 Quattro was released as part of The James Bond Collection, magazine nr. 72.

Audi 200 Avant Quattro
Bond uses the Audi 200 Avant Quattro in Morocco to folllow Pushkin to the Hotel Ile The France in Tangier. The 200 Avant is a stationwagon / estate version of the Audi 200. The car has Moroccan licence plate number 5196.33.

In the end credits of The Living Daylights, Audi AG is mentioned in the list of companies that the producers thank for their co-operation.

Other Audi sightings
Another Audi seen in a Bond film is the Audi A5 driven by Patrice (played by Ola Rapace) in a car chase in Istanbul during the opening sequence of SkyFall (2012). Two Audi A8's can be spotted: the first is parked at Carver's Saigon headquarters in Tomorrow Never Dies, and the second passes by when Greene steps out of his Jaguar/Daimler at the Bregenz Open Air theatre in Quantum of Solace.
