DNA’s Audis make a storm of colour

20 May 2021
Audi A2 released in four different colour versions, as a 1/18 scale resincast, by DNA Collectibles

Presented to the public for the first time in 1997 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Audi A2 (based on the Audi AI2 concept car) was produced from November 1999 to August 2005 in Neckarsulm. The A2 (Typ 8Z) is a five-door hatchback compact MPV supermini that was very popular thanks to its lightweight aluminium construction, low fuel consumption, and its engine efficiency.

For summer 2003, Audi created the Colour Storm edition, featuring new optional special paint and body styling options. The new body finish contrasts a stylish matt black roof, door mirrors and side rubbing strips to contrast with the new brightly-coloured paintwork. This eye-catching theme highlighted the A2's extraordinary, highly aerodynamic curves, and the colour treatment was continued into the car’s interior with upholstery to match the body colour.

To be released in four different colour versions, as a 1/18 scale resincast, DNA Collectibles has confirmed that pre-orders can now be placed through its website (www.dnacollectibles.com) or through your preferred retailer. Made to DNA’s usual exceptionally high standards and featuring sublime levels of detailing, the A2 will be available in either Imola Yellow, Misano Red, Sprint Blue or Papaya Orange. Only 399 of each colour will be made (all individually numbered) and models will be priced at £150.99.
