German Hype: Audi To Release “DTM Champion” Edition A5 Coupe

To celebrate their recent success with their DTM team and driver Mike Rockenfeller Audi is releasing a special “DTM Champion” edition A5 coupe later this month (Oct. 21st).  Actually, it is more of a special dealer option package but either way its limited and its kind of awesome.  The package includes a color matched fixed rear wing, special 20 inch aluminum wheels, DTM badging, and comes in one of three colors (Misano Red, Daytona Grey, or Glacier White).

Only 300 of these packages will be produced and will come in at a cost of 1,900 Euros which is about $2,600.  Although the fact that the press release only mentions the price in Euros is a pretty strong indicator that this package won’t bee seen at American Audi dealerships. 

Although if you “know a guy” maybe you can get one shipped over.  That would score major jealousy points with fellow Audi-philes!  For now you can click the thumbnail below for an HD-sized picture of the DTM Champion package so you can see all the little details.
