An RHD (right hand drive) BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition has been listed to be for sale by Romans International, UK’s leading supercar dealership. The first owner of this rare BMW would have had to dish out about £135,000 in the UK. Production of this rare RHD DTM Champion Edition is limited to only 200 units.
BMW revealed the M4 DTM Champion Edition in October 2016 as it paid tribute to Marco Wittmann, BMW Motorsport Works Driver who won the championship title in the same year. In just 2 years since making his first championship win, Wittmann once again held the DTM driver’s title in the 2016 finale. Never before has BMW come out with a special edition model that is so closely related to motor racing.
Unlike the standard M4, the DTM Champion Edition gets an additional 51kW and 50Nm under the hood. As a result of this, the Champion Edition model boasts a zero-100kmh acceleration in just 3.8 seconds with top speed of up to 305 km/h.
For a car to have such an outstanding performance, BMW used the same water injection technology as that used on the BMW M4 GTS. This helps cool the combustion chambers, thereby increasing the engine performance by up to 16% compared to the production model’s standard output.
The same model exclusively comes in Alpine White exterior body paint with additional foiling typical to most DTM race cars. Its aerodynamic components come in a naked carbon finish such as on the DTM’s massive rear wing, rear diffuser, side skirt trims and side-mirror casings. The aero vents on the front wheel arches as well as the front splitter are also finished in bare carbon fiber. The twin tailpipes on the other hand are made with lightweight titanium.
For its interior, the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition features M Carbon bucket seats with Alcantara fabric blended with premium Merino Leather. The rear seats are instead replaced with a white rollover bar. Moreover, the rest of the interior are wrapped in high quality Alcantara material including the M Sports steering wheel with grey contrast.
For better grip on the road, the 666 M light alloy wheels in matte Orbit Grey are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance tyres. These tyres are sized 265/35 R19 at the front and 285/30 R20 at the rear. To conquer any type of road conditions, the M4 DTM Championship Edition is equipped with BMW M carbon ceramic brakes with individually adjustable 3-way coil over suspension for superior handling.
