BMW M launched the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition to celebrate Marco Wittmann's
DTM title. This was the M4's debut season in the touring car race series.
"I am overwhelmed," said the new DTM champion. "The entire season has been incredible. After all, coming into the opening race of the season here in Hockenheim, I never believed I would be standing here in the same place as the DTM champion. And then to have my contract as a BMW works driver renewed and receive a Formula One test - that is a dream come true for me. I cannot find the words to express how proud and happy I am to be part of the BMW family. The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition in my colors is the icing on the cake at the end of this outstanding year. The car looks fantastic. I can hardly wait to take it out for a drive."
The Champion Edition will be built in a limited run of 23 units, reflecting Wittmann's car number. In a tribute to the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, the Champion Edition will be offered exclusively in Alpine White. The other 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. The matt-black bonnet and boot lid with eye-catching stripe design make a visual complement to the standard CFRP roof, as does the black character line along the car's flanks. Added to the mix are 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.
Inside, the door sill plates bear Marco Wittmann's autograph, while carbon interior trim strips - likewise signed by the 24-year-old German - feature "DTM Champion 2014" lettering and the car's serial number.
The high-performance credentials of the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition - which is powered by a high-revving straight-six engine boasting M TwinPower Turbo technology and developing 425 hp - is further enhanced by the M DCT transmission with Drivelogic, M Carbon ceramic brakes and the M Driver's Package.
All 23 owners will also be invited to a private training session on the Nurburgring's legendary Nordschleife circuit with the new DTM champion Marco Wittmann.
