So what exactly is Q4?

Couple of idle questions:
What does the 'Q4' bit exactly mean in my Spider 3.2?
And can anyone recommend a decent book about Alfa history? I'm looking for a Xmas gift for my Alfa-mad son!

the predecessor to the 33 Q4 was the P4... next letter in the alfabet, and the first letter of Quadri.

another way of writing 4x4 (Q4).

Torsen 4WD system, rear biased too. Much more effective than the VAG group's Haldex beard Quattro system.
