Audi unveils striking new Formula E livery for Season 6

Audi has unveiled the livery which will adorn its two e-tron FE06 cars for the 2019/20 Formula E season, which kicks off in November.

The striking new look was unveiled on Thursday ahead of an official public launch at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt next week.

"Compliments to the design team at Audi," commented Audi driver Daniel Abt. "I’ve been keeping track of the visual development over the last few weeks and think the result is brilliant – the car simply looks aggressive and fast."

Team-mate Lucas di Grassi added: "The fans are going to immediately recognise our car from the grandstands or on television. Each livery in the five seasons has had its own unique character, but the FE06 is my favourite. Now it’s up to the whole team to also make it a success."

Whilst the colour scheme isn't a major departure from previous liveries, the overall design is far more recognisable, taking design cues from the color palette in which the road-going Audi e-tron was previously presented.

The team also unveiled a new sponsor in SONAX, which is a leading manufacturer of car care products has been closely linked to motorsport for decades and also supported Abt during his career.

"We’re delighted that a new chapter is being opened in our long-standing partnership with ABT and that we’ll be able to present ourselves as a partner of the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team in Formula E in the future. The fascinating environment of the series provides our brand with great prospects of reaching even more potential customers worldwide," added SONAX Head of Marketing Franz Fischer.
