BMW Team RMG’s Marco Wittmann, scooped his first Deutche Tourenwagen Maters win with his M4 at the Lausitzring in Germany.
In honour of his victory, BMW created an M4 DTM Champion Edition model and also launched it to a surprised and gleeful Wittmann on the evening after the final race of the year. Performance wise, it’s the same as the standard M4, clocking a swift 0-100km/h time of just 4.1 seconds.
The Champion Edition will be built in a limited run of 23 units, reflecting Wittmann’s car number. The signature features of the special-edition model, which will be refined exclusively at the BMW Individual Manufactory in Garching (near Munich), will likewise display close links with the victorious BMW M4 DTM. With just two rounds to go before the end of the ten-race season, BMW has opted to add more features to the car such as the matte black bonnet and boot lid with eye-catching stripe design and all exclusively white Alpine.
Additionally, added to the mix is an M kidney grille with orange surround, an M logo rearwards of the front wheel arches, the number 23 on the doors and the flag along with “WIT” and “DTM Champion 2014” lettering on the rear side windows. The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition is also fitted with 19-inch light-alloy wheels, a black front splitter, a black side skirt blade, carbon front flaps, carbon mirror caps, a rear spoiler and a carbon diffuser insert from the M Performance Parts range.
When you step inside, the door sill plates bear Marco Wittmann’s autograph, while carbon interior trim strips – likewise signed by the 24-year-old from Fürth, Germany – feature “DTM Champion 2014” lettering and the car’s serial number.
