Dr. Wolfgang Dürheimer presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the new Audi RS5 DTM, witch is the racecar for the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) 2013. Wolfgang Dürheimer is an important Member of the Board for Technical Development of AUDI AG and acting Head of Audi Motorsport.
Wolfgang Dürheimer said: "At the end of the day, our customers benefit from the victories on the racetracks, because we attach great value to technology transfer between motorsport and production. Our new Audi RS6 Avant, which we present here in Geneva, is a prime example: it combines downsizing of the engine with significantly less weight. And where do you learn this? In motorsport."
