2016 BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition news, pictures, specifications, and information

THE BMW M4 DTM CHAMPION EDITION

◾A high-performance coupe wîth a focus on racetrack deployment and an exceptional collector's item.
◾Delivering 500hp and featuring cutting-edge motorsports technology.

To celebrate the success of Marco Wittmann securing yet another DTM driver's title at the season finale at the Hockenheimring, BMW M is launching the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition. The new edition model consists of top-class motor racing technology for drive and suspension as well as a specific design that mimics the DTM racing cars built by BMW Motorsport and delivers a power output of 500hp and a maximum torque of 600Nm.

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition completes the sprint from zero to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds and has a top speed is limited to 190mph* thanks to the innovative water injection technology featured in the straight six-cylinder power unit, previously seen on the BMW M4 GTS. This innovative technology enables cooling of the combustion chambers, significantly raising the engine's thermally-related performance limits by 16 per cent in power output compared to the production model.

Frank van Meel, President of BMW M GmbH commented: 'Congratulations to Marco Wittmann, his team RMG and the entire crew from BMW Motorsport. We have the pleasure of honouring Marco's performance by producing a BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition in 2016 to mark his winning the DTM driver's title. Never before has one of our edition models been so closely linked to motor racing.'

Distinctive exterior design inspired by DTM racing cars.

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016 is exclusively available in Alpine White. Design and shaping of the additional foiling is reminiscent of the look of DTM racing cars produced by BMW Motorsport. Various aerodynamics components finished in visible carbon also give the car that distinctive racing car look. These include the front splitter, the aero flicks positioned in front of the front wheel arches, exterior mirror caps, side skirt attachments, and a rear diffuser as well as the large rear wing firmly mounted on the boot lid.

Pure motor sports atmosphere in a classy, reduced interior.

Inside the two-seater BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016, both driver and co-driver sit in M Carbon bucket seats covered in exclusive Alcantara/Leather Merino. The entire interior is lined wîth exceptionally high-quality covering material Alcantara, also used on the M Sports §teering wheel featuring a grey '12 o'clock' marker. Behind the front bucket seats of the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition, a white rollover bar replaces the rear seat system.

In terms of comfort and safety, the new edition is by no means sparsely equipped. Features include the BMW Professional Navigation system, air conditioning, adaptive LED headlights wîth BMW Selective Beam (glare-free high beam assistant), OLED taillights, Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear as well as automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors. Full ÚK specification will be announced in due course.

Extensive measures to enhance driving dynamics.
In comparison to the production version of the BMW M4, the DTM Champion Edition impresses not only wîth enhanced performance, but also wîth further optimized dynamic handling qualities. This is also the result of even more consistent implementation of the lightweight construction concept. In addition to other components, the bonnet, roof, instrument panel support and rear diffuser are made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). The end silencer of the double-flow sports exhaust system featuring two pairs of tailpipes is made of exceptionally lightweight titanium.


Optimal contact wîth the road is ensured by Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance tyres size 265/35 R19 at the front and 285/30 R20 at the rear designed specifically for use on the racetrack and mounted on light alloys boasting a star spoke design 666 M in Orbit Grey matt. M carbon-ceramic brakes guarantee fade-free braking even in tough racing conditions. The individually adjustable 3-way coilover suspension is mechanically adjustable both for rebound and damping, thus allowing the car's handling characteristics to be adapted according to personal taste.

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition is on sale now, prices to be confirmed.
