Audi A5 DTM aims at Europe only with V6 diesel engine

Audi is ready to launch a special version of the A5 in Europe to celebrate the automakers DTM racing efforts. The car is called the A5 DTM and it is a special version that packs a diesel V6 engine under the hood. That engine should be enough to tell you that the car won't be coming to the US.

The diesel V6 is a 3.0L TDI making 245hp and 428 lb-ft of torque. As you expect with Audi, the car has the firms Quattro all wheel drive system. The transmission is a 7-speeed wet-clutch S-tronic flappy paddle unit. Audi says that the power from the V6 will send the car from a standstill to 62mph in 5.9 seconds.

The top speed of the DTM is limited to 155mph. The wheels are matte grey and shod with 265/30 performance tires. The car comes in Misano Red and has racy graphics. Inside the car, you get sexy RS seats and stainless steel pedals.

The interior is fitted with a fake suede steering wheel with a flat bottom as well. The seats are the sexiest part of the interior with racing style and a back shell painted to match the outside of the car. This is a very limited edition car with only 50 units being made.
