I was wondering that myself. I see the V8Star stickers, but the W8 badge no the front grille. So are they using a V or W? That would be sweet if they used the W for racing!

Bad news: V8STAR has been cancelled for this season. I don't think VW has any plans to enter DTM.

FWIW, for the 2004 series, Audi switches from the TT to the A4, and Opel switches from the Astra coupe to the Vectra hatchback.

These are "silhouette-type" race cars. Nothing in them is built by the manufacturer of the car they're supposed to look like. I.e., VW has nothing to do with building that car. It's a spec tubeframe chassis with a spec 5.7L V8. Even the dimensions of the cars' bodies are all spec, so while they are styled after different size cars, the silhouette bodies are all exactly the same height/width just styled to look like some real car. Euro NASCAR. The engines even come from a NASCAR builder.

Oh, and WTLW 8)
