Two years after his first title win, BMW M4 pilot Marco Wittmann (GER) once again secured the driver’s title in the DTM at the 2016 season finale at the Hockenheimring. To honour this achievement, BMW M is rolling out the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition (combined fuel consumption: 8.5 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 199 g/km).* Compared to the the standard M4 series model, this limited edition car, with only 200 examples worldwide, boasts an increase in engine performance by 51 kW/69hp to 368 kW/500hp and a 50 Nm rise in maximum torque to 600 Nm.

Superlative motorsport technology in the drive and suspension systems, as well as a specific design that draws on the look of the DTM racing car from BMW Motorsport, makes the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition a high-performance coupé with a focus on racetrack operability, as well as an exceptional collector’s piece.

“A warm congratulations to Marco Wittmann, his Team RMG and the whole BMW Motorsport team,” says Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M Ltd. “It’s a great pleasure for us to honour Marco’s performances by bringing out, also in 2016, a BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition on the occasion of his DTM driver’s title. Up to now, none of our editions has been more directly inspired by sports racing.”

When it comes to driving performance, the BMW M4 DTM notches up some impressive scores. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint for example takes just 3.8 seconds, and its electronically limited top speed is 305 km/h. This remarkable performance is made possible not least by the six-cylinder in-line engine’s innovative water injection system, already familiar from the BMW M4 GTS model. The cooling action this produces in the combustion chamber makes for a significant expansion of the engine’s thermally induced performance limits, showing a 16% performance improvement over the standard series engine.

Striking features of the DTM racing car-inspired exterior design.

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016 is exclusively available in alpine white. The additional foiling pays homage in its design and moulding to the look of BMW Motorsport DTM racing car, and emphasises at first glance the edition model’s close relationship with the brand’s successes in the world’s most popular line of international touring cars. The various carbon-fibre aerodynamic components also contribute to the distinctive racing-car appearance. These include the front splitter, the aero-flicks positioned ahead of the front wheel arches, wing mirror caps, side skirt extensions, rear diffuser and the large rear spoiler fixed to the trunk lid.

Driver and co-driver settle into the interior of the two-seater BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016 on M carbon bucket seats, exclusively upholstered in Alcantara merino leather. The whole interior is also kitted out with the especially high-quality Alcantara cover material, also used on the M sports steering wheel with 12-hour marking in grey. Instead of rear seating, behind the front seats of the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition there’s a roll bar fitted in white.

When it comes to comfort and safety, the edition model’s features are anything but spartan. Among other fittings, the model is delivered complete with the BMW Professional navigation system, air conditioning, adaptive LED headlights with BMW Selective Beam (a glare-free, high-beam assistant), organic LED taillights, Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear, as well as automatically anti-dazzle interior and exterior mirrors.

Giant steps towards stronger driving dynamics.

Compared to the standard BMW M4 series model, the DTM Champion Edition excels not only with an improved performance but also once more with optimised driving dynamic qualities. Part of this is again down to the rigorously applied concept of intelligent lightweight construction. Among other features, the engine bonnet, roof, supporting tube for the instrument panel and rear diffuser are made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics (CFRP). The silencer of the double-flow sport exhaust system with its two double-tailpipes is crafted from exceptionally lightweight titanium.

Road holding is assured with the specially racetrack-calibrated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance tyres, in 265/35 R19 format in the front and 285/30 R20 at the rear. The tyre mix is mounted on alloy wheel rims with the star-spoke 666 M design in orbit-grey matte finish. The M carbon-ceramic braking system guarantees fade-free acceleration even in tough racetrack use. Traction and pressure ratings for the individually customisable 3-way M coilover suspension can be mechanically adjusted. So the car’s handling properties can be tailored to personal taste and road characteristics.

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016, in a limited edition of just 200 vehicles worldwide, is available right now for €148,500.
