The Audi A5 DTM has a high-strength carbon fiber monocoque that is combined with a steel tube cage. The V8 engine with a power output of about 460hp will be adopted from the successful A4 DTM nearly unchanged. The proven six-speed transmission will continue to be used as well. Noticeable features to the 2012-generation of DTM vehicles are a larger rear wing and a reduction of the permitted aerodynamics components.
Expect to see the new Audi A5 DTM racer at the start of the first race in 2012.
