BMW Unveils Limited Run M4 — Now That's How You Celebrate A Championship

Written By:

German carmaker BMW has decided to congratulate BMW DTM works driver Marco Wittmann on his 2016 DTM driver's championship victory by unveiling a limited run version of its M4 coupe.

Think of the M4 DTM Champion Edition as the M4 GTS without the ultra-manic orange colour palette.

Speaking of colours, the all 200 examples of the M4 DTM Champion Edition will be painted in Alpine White and will feature stripes in the three colours that identify any car as one mad by BMW madcap M division.

Powering theM4 DTM Champion Edition is the same water injection 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight six engine that pushes out 493bhp and 600Nm of torque, which is the same as the GTS.

0-100km/h is dealt with in a similar 3.8 seconds and this celebratory M4 will keep on accelerating till its hits its electronically limited top speed of 305km/h.

There are also quite a few aero bits added on to help the car deal with the twisty stuff.

Up front, the M4 DTM Champion Edition features aero flics on the front bumper along with a large front splitter that wouldn't look out of place on a DTM car.

On the sides, the wing mirrors are made out of carbon-fibre and there are new side skirts which also seem to follow that carbon-fibre theme.

At the rear end there is a new diffuser along with a rather large wing that should prevent this M4 from taking off at high speeds.

The racy theme is carried into the interiors withcarbon bucket seats wrapped in alcantara and merino leather and a sports steering wheel. The rear seats have made way for a roll cage at the rear.

If you want to get your hands on one of the 200 cars available, get ready to cough out 148,500 euros (Rs. 1.09 Crore).
