To celebrate the racing spirit of the Audi models featured in the German Touring Car Masters (DTM) racing series, the German automaker will release a special-edition model in Europe with DTM-inspired exterior elements and a limited production run.
The A5 DTM Selection special edition will show its racing roots with a unique design with the front hood, doors, and rear window outfitted with DTM, Quattro, and Audi Sport logos. The exterior will feature a Misano red paint to contrast with the high-gloss black parts of the front fascia, sills, and rear. The Audi A5 DTM selection will ride on cast aluminum 20x9-inch wheels with a split five-spoke design in matte titanium, which come wrapped in 265/30R20-size tires.
Power will come from a 3.0-liter TDI engine capable of producing 241 hp and 427 lb-ft of torque. Audi estimates the special edition will go from 0-62 mph in 5.9 seconds and have a top speed of 155 mph. The Audi A5 DTM Selection special edition model will be sold exclusively in Germany for roughly $85,300, and only 50 units will be produced starting this month. This model also marks the third DTM special edition produced by the automaker, which include an A4 in 2005 and an A5 Coupe in 2013.
