Audi have taken the wraps off their new RS5 challenger for the 2014 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season, revealing the car at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
The car features revised aerodynamics over the 2013 car which took the manufacturer to the driver’s championship with Mike Rockenfeller and the team’s title with Audi Sport Team Phoenix.
The main changes to the RS5 have been made in the aerodynamics of the car due to the strict regulations in the DTM which allow for few changes to made between seasons. The revised RS5 features a new grill and air ducts to feed air to the engine and brakes.
Like BMW changes have been made to the aerodynamics around the wing mirrors and along the side of the car. There are now notably more aerodynamic devices along the skirt of the car.
“In addition to the suspension, our main priority was to improve the aero,” said Stefan Aicher, Head of Vehicle Design at Audi Sport. “The DTM rules are strict, which is why minute detail work is required within the tight limitations.”
The new car will make its first on-track appearance at the first ITR test at the Hungaroring at the end of March.
