Limited to just 300 units, the new A5 DTM Champion edition honors its winning driver Mike Rockenfeller in similar fashion to the special-edition BMW M3 that paid tribute to last year's champion, Bruno Spengler. It comes with a rear spoiler, special 20-inch alloys, aluminum trim on the mirror caps and, of course, a smattering of special badges inside and out.
Buyers will be able to place their orders next week in red, white or grey, with any of four engine choices, at a €1,900 premium. That is, in Europe, anyway. Given that DTM hasn't picked up on this side of the Atlantic just yet, we wouldn't go looking for this model at our local Audi dealer Stateside.
Audi A5 Coupé as special edition DTM model
- Exclusive limited edition equipment and trim
- "A5 DTM Champion" package priced at 1,900 euros
Audi is celebrating the success of Mike Rockenfeller with the special edition "A5 DTM Champion" model. Production of the model is limited to 300 units and will not only excite fans of "Rocky". With victory in Zandvoort, the Audi works driver won the 2013 DTM season with races to spare, thus securing his first ever title in the popular touring car series.
Attractive extras emphasize the individuality of the special edition model: DTM badges on the door sill trims, the fenders and the side sills add further styling touches. Other special features are the fixed rear wing in body color and exterior mirrors in aluminum look. 20-inch cast aluminum wheels in 5 V-spoke design round out the equipment list. This special package is priced at 1,900 euros.
The special edition A5 DTM Champion model can be ordered from October 21 and is available in the colors Misano red, Daytona gray and Glacier white. There is a choice of four engines: 2.0 TDI quattro with 130 kW (177 hp), 3.0 TDI quattro with 180 kW (245 hp), 2.0 TFSI quattro with 165 kW (225 hp) and 3.0 TFSI quattro with 200 kW (272 hp).
