Marco Wittmann’s impressive title in the 2016 DTM championship has been properly honored by BMW with the introduction of a very special edition M4, simply called the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition. Produced in a limited run of just 200 units, this special edition of the M4 has received a lot of interesting tweaks, with the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine now benefiting from the same water-injection system as the M4 GTS.
As a result, the engine of the M4 DTM Champion Edition now develops 493 hp and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque and will enable the vehicle to do 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, before topping out at 305 km/h.
Apart from the engine upgrades, this special M4 also features various distinctive styling elements, including the Alpine White paint-job and a livery of BMW M’s three distinctive colors. Furthermore, the vehicle shows off several aerodynamic changes, such as the fitment of canards on the front bumper, a large front splitter, carbon wing mirrors, redesigned side skirts, a rear diffuser and a towering rear wing.
BMW also equipped this car with new set of matte grey alloys and carbon ceramic brakes that add to the overall appeal. On the inside, future owners of this beauty will find new M Carbon bucket seats, wrapped in Alcantara and merino leather, alongside an M sports steering wheel, a white rollover bar and more. The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition will start off at 148,500 euros ($162,926) in Germany – that is, if you will be able to get one in time.
