Artwork: Audi A4 IMSA GTO

By Tarek Ramchani

When looking at numbers the A4 DTM "R14" is the most successful Audi race car in the brand's DTM history. The car was based on the B8 generation model of the Audi A4. The car gave the Four Rings three championship titles in its four year life between 2008 and 2011 . Two titles with Timo Scheider in 2008 and 2009 for Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline. The final title came with Martin Tomzcyk in 2011 for Audi Sport Team Phoenix. The DTM rules changed at the end of 2011 and the R14 has been retired and replaced by the Audi A5 DTM R17.

This victorious DTM machine is also available in the famous Forza Motorsport 4 video game for the Xbox 360. Here is a very nice render by yuli288 featuring the Audi A4 in old style Audi Sport colors. This R14 is carrying the livery of the legendary 90 quattro IMSA GTO.
