Audi has prepared a limited-run A5 DTM selection which as the name implies takes cues from the DTM-spec A5.
Taking into account the all-new A5 is set to go on sale sometime next year, this is one of the last special editions based on the outgoing model and comes packed with a bunch of DTM, quattro and Audi sport logos. It wears a Misano Red paint combined with a glossy black look for the add-on parts mounted in the front, sills and at the back. The redesigned front apron adopts beefier air inlets featuring a rhombus pattern for the grilles while the side profile shows 20-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels with a five dual-spoke design and wrapped in 265/30 R20 tires.
In terms of power, the Audi A5 DTM selection has a six-cylinder, 3.0 TDI with 245 PS (180 kW) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque which ensures a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 5.9 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h). The engine's output is channeled to a quattro permanent all-wheel drive system through a 7-speed S tronic gearbox that allows the high-performance diesel coupe consume a relatively low 6.3 liters / 100 km (37.3 mpg US or 44.8 mpg UK) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 162 g/km.
Once the doors are opened, you'll notice the entry lighting that projects a DTM logo on the road while the special door sill trims with Audi Sport lettering denote this is a limited-run A5 Coupe. The highlight of the interior are the RS5-derived bucket seats with a Misano Red color applied onto their backrest covers, just like on the door and side trims. Audi used red stitching for the seats and the leather-wrapped steering wheel which also has Alcantara and boasts a flattened rim. Rounding off the list of goodies are the alloy pedals and tinted rear windows.
Audi has plans to make just 50 units of the A5 DTM selection.
