Audi A5 DTM Champion Edition
The German DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) Touring Car Championship boasts some of the most extreme versions of road cars Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have to offer. The DTM cars are sort of like German road cars on über-steroids. And, this year, Audi and driver Mike “Rocky” Rockenfeller won the driver’s title in a car kinda related to an Audi RS5.
In honor of this win, Audi is offering the DTM Champion edition package for the A5. The Audi A5 DTM Champion edition is an essentially just an appearance package. For €1,900 you get DTM badging on the door sills, fenders and side sills, a big rear wing, aluminum-look side mirrors (like the S5), 20-inch V-spoke aluminum wheels and your choice of Misano Red, Daytona Gray or Glacier White paint. Power still comes from a choice of Audi’s 177 hp 2.0 TDI quattro, 245 hp 3.0 TDI quattro, 225 hp 2.0 TFSI quattro or 272 hp 3.0 TFSI quattro.
