Marco Wittmann has secured the driver's title once again. He was awarded with this title two years of after winning his first championship title. As a tribute of his immense success, BMW stages the new BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition.

Yesterday, at the Hockenheimring, Wittmann won the 2016 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) Championship Title, after an electrifying battle and a long season that shows the M4 as just a regular car, Wittmann proves all critics wrong and won his 2nd title. BMW wants to celebrate with his success with the champion edition of the BMW M4. The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition was immediately staged by BMW.

The image of the car is as fierce as the designers wanted.  Essential designs comprised M Performance which meet its goal perfectly, performing that with a few tweaks, the M4 can get scarier than it is already. Aesthetically this special edition wears many details in carbon fiber, with new aerodynamic touches. A splitter, some canards, side skirts, prominent rear spoiler, new shape mirrors and the addition of OLED lights to the rear, a really superb edition so to speak.

Tires used by the GTS is also used but this time, the orange accents have been put aside to dress completely in matt anthracite tone. The size of the tires is of 19 inches in the front and 20 inches on the rear axle axis, covered by a rim with measures of 265/35 285/30 front and on its back.

Moreover the developments were not only centralized on the body because the interior also receives awesome changes. The M4 must go to match the theme being a DTM car. Thus, two seats with four - point harnesses are installed. M sports steering wheel is also installed, and a roll cage that takes the place of the rear seats, as already happened in the BMW M4 GTS model

Furthermore, Carscoops reported that talking about its powerful engine, the car will have a 6 - cylinder with water injection GTS and performance increased to up to 500hp on the rear axle with over 600 NM of torque. The increased power allows performance data are excellent which allows an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 305 km / h.

In addition, BMW has been empowered to create a limited series of 200 units of the championship edition which will have awesome styling as mentioned above and a very powerful engine.

Upon knowing that only 200 units will be made, the price will not appear cheap. The price will start at 148,500 euros BMWblog confirmed. It is a price higher than 50,000 euros for a conventional M4.

 Henceforth, the price will all be worth it as it is a price to pay for honor, glory, power and exclusivity.
