Audi A4

The Audi A4 is a line of compact executive cars produced since 1994 by the German car manufacturer Audi, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. The A4 is based on the Volkswagen Group B platform; the first generation A4 succeeded the Audi 80. The automaker's internal numbering treats the A4 as a continuation of the Audi 80 lineage, with the initial A4 designated as the B5-series, followed by the B6, B7, B8 and the B9; the B8 and B9 versions of the A4 are built on the Volkswagen Group MLB platform shared with many other Audi models and one Porsche model within Volkswagen Group. The Audi A4 automobile layout consists of a front-engine design, with transaxle-type transmissions mounted at the rear of the engine; the cars on some models, "quattro" all-wheel drive. The A4 is available as a station wagon; the second and third generations of the A4 had a convertible version, but the B8 version of the convertible became a variant of the Audi A5 instead as Audi got back into the compact executive coupé segment.

The first generation Audi A4 debuted in October 1994, with production starting November 1994 and European sales commencing in January 1995 for the 1995 model year. North American sales began in September 1995 for the 1996 model year, it was built on the Volkswagen Group B5 platform, which it shared with the fourth generation Volkswagen Passat. It had front-wheel drive. Many variations of the A4 were available with Audi's quattro four-wheel drive system; the A4 was introduced as a four-door saloon/sedan. Development began in 1988, with the first design sketches being created that year. By 1991, an exterior design by Imre Hasanic was chosen and frozen for November 1994 production by 1992; the interior design was finalized in 1992, with pilot production commencing in the first half of 1994. Development concluded in the third quarter of 1994. A wide range of engines were available in European markets, between 1.6 and 2.8 litres for petrol engines. The 2.6 and 2.8-litre V6 engines, carried over from the old 80/90 proved popular, although in North America, the 2.8-litre engine was the only V6, available there until 1997.

The Audi A4 was the first model in the Volkswagen Group to feature the new 1.8-litre 20v engine with five valves per cylinder, based on the unit Audi Sport had developed for their Supertouring race car. A turbocharged 1.8 T version produced 210 N ⋅ m torque. Moreover, a quattro GmbH special edition of the B5 1.8T was available in Germany and Europe, for which the engine's power output was raised to 178 PS and 235 N⋅m. Five-valve technology was added to a reengineered V6 family of engines in 1997, starting with the 2.8-litre V6 30v, which now produced 193 PS, followed by a 2.4-litre V6, a downsize from the previous 2.6 litre, 150 hp engine, but with a power increase to 165 PS. Audi debuted their new tiptronic automatic transmission on the B5 platform, based on the unit Porsche developed for their 964-generation 911; the transmission is a conventional automatic gearbox with a torque converter offering the driver automatic operation or manual selection of the gear ratios. The B5 marked Audi's continued move into the midsize luxury car segment, having started this trajectory notably with model years of the preceding Audi 80/90 B4.

Despite initial mechanical problems, overall build and assembly quality were lauded both by the automotive press and within Audi and Volkswagen, at the time, parent company Volkswagen declared the B5 the company-wide build quality benchmark for all its other models. The Audi A4 B5 alterations throughout its seven-year run. Moreover, a significant facelift was introduced for the 1998 B5 model year at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show, with sales beginning in Europe in early 1998; the 2.8-litre 30-valve V6 engine replaced the 2.8-litre 12-valve. A 2.5-litre V6 Turbocharged Direct Injection diesel engine with 150 PS was standard on the quattro. A six-speed manual gearbox was available, as well as the new high-performance Audi S4, now part of the A4 lineup. Cosmetic updates included new rear lights, door handles, other minor exterior/interior changes. In mid-1998, the 1.8 20vT engine available outside Europe had its power output raised to 170 PS. The previous KKK K03 turbocharger, although fundamentally unchanged, received revisions on the turbine side to prevent cracking due to heat.

The 12-valve V6 was replaced by the 30-valve unit, available in Europe for two years. A further facelift took place across the S4 platform in February 1999 as a 1999.5 model. This facelift was known at Audi as a Grosse Produktaufwertung, as was signified by facelift cars now carrying the denomination "8D2". In 1999 Audi debuted an higher performance RennSport model, the RS4 Avant, like its predecessor RS2, available only in the Avant bodystyle; the following engines were available: In the Euro NCAP safety and crash te

Geography of the Northern Territory

The Northern Territory occupies the north central part of the continent of Australia. The Northern Territory borders are to the west with Western Australia, the Western Australia border being near the 129° east longitude; the NT to the south with the South Australian border being the 26th parallel south latitude. To the east the NT with the Queensland border along the 138° east longitude. In the Top End of the Territory is a 5500 km coastline, extending from the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf Timor Sea in the west to the Gulf of Carpentaria in the east; the various islands make up another 5500 km of coastline, resulting in a total of 11,000 km. The southern part of the Territory is arid. Alice Springs and the surrounding communities make the total population of Central Australia around 60,000 people. There are large Cattle Stations and significant areas protected around the area. Major transportation in Central Australia comes from road and rail. There are many small settlements scattered across the Territory but the larger population centres are located on the single sealed road that links Darwin to southern Australia, the Stuart Highway, known to locals as "the track".

The coastline in the Top End includes three of Australia's largest islands, Groote Eylandt, Bathurst Island and the largest, Melville Island. The highest point in the Territory is Mount Zeil at 1,531 metres and is situated in the MacDonnell Ranges. In the northern part of the territory lies Kakadu National Park, that features wetlands and native wildlife. To the north of, the Arafura Sea, to the east Arnhem Land, whose regional centre is Maningrida on the Liverpool River delta. Much of the Territory is flat, but has some disconnected ranges, including the sandstone plateau of western Arnhem Land. Long mountain ranges are more a feature of Central Australia, these include the MacDonnell Ranges, the Petermann Ranges, Harts Range; the Northern Territory has the natural rock formations of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, which are sacred to the local Aboriginal people. The Northern Territory has the two largest deserts in Australia, the Tanami Desert 2 in the northern part of the Territory, the Simpson Desert 2 of Central Australia.

There is a series of river systems in the Northern Territory that include Alligator Rivers, Daly River, Finke River, McArthur River, Roper River, Todd River and Victoria River. The Victoria River is flows for 560 kilometres; the Hay River is east of Alice Springs, with the Marshall River, Arthur Creek, Camel Creek and Bore Creek as tributaries
