Rob Austin's Audi A4 will run a special NASCAR-inspired livery at this weekend's British Touring Car Championship finale at Brands Hatch.
The Rob Austin Racing-run machine will mirror the appearance of Ryan Newman's Stewart Haas Chevrolet from selected Sprint Cup races this year.
Austin, whose team has competed in the BTCC with the NGTC Audi since 2011, said: "Since the Snetterton round we have made great progress.
"There have been personnel changes and a change in the engine department with the association with Field Motorsport, which is really bearing fruit.
"All the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and this is proven by the Audi being among the quickest cars on the track over the last two rounds.
"Hopefully we can put it all together, get on the podium and position ourselves well for a winning season in 2013."
Austin lies 13th in the championship and 10th in the independents' standings.
