    DTM is a touring car race series. The DTM in reference to the B7 A4 is just a naff styling package.

    The full translation is Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters

    It translates into German Touring Car Masters, and is the main touring car championship in Germany....when Audi wins, they tend to bring out a version of the winning car for sale to the public, and call it the DTM version ( although it is actually only very loosely based on the race car, and is actually cosmetics mainly ).

    Hope that helps

    The B7 DTM is a 2.0T with a kit that looks like the RS4 minus the flared arches, usually has most the interior and engine bits and bobs flocked too rather than leather.

    There is also an S4 DTM version but only available in North American territories. In my opinion, this is what the DTM should have been in the UK.

    Didn't it also have 220PS instead of the standard 200PS?

    ^^ that too, maybe a few more things but it's a decent car, just a shame about the initial purchase price over a regular 2.0T (but understandable at the same time).
