DTM: Audi banking on the A5 coupé in 2012

Audi will be switching its successful A4 DTM model for the A5 coupe from 2012. Based on the recently facelifted A5 model, the DTM car will be based around a carbon-fibre monocoque, combined with a steel tube cage, and get its power from a near-identical version of the 460 hp V8 unit curently being used in the 2011 A4 car.

A prototype of the new A5 racer (codenamed R17) is being completed at Audi Sport in Ingolgstadt and will make its official debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September. Cool.
