DCI Gene Hunt swaps the Ford Cortina for an Audi Quattro and joins the London Metropolitan Police to deal with the 'Southern Nancy' criminal scum.
In season 2 of BBC's Ashes To Ashes, a corrupt senior police officer and a corrupt junior police officer are played by Roger Allam (Mackintosh) and Shaun Evans (Hales). In ITV's police drama, Endeavour (2012), Allam and Evans play morally upright senior and junior police officers (Thursday and Morse, respectively)
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."
