Marco Wittmann receives a BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition

Marco Wittmann, German racing driver and BMW Works drivers was honoured with a BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition from BMW Welt in Munich. In honour of the 2014 DTM champion and paying tribute to the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, the Champion Edition is offered only in a sublime Alpine White paint job.

The model has been modified at the BMW Individual factory with matt-black bonnet and boot lid with the stripe design displaying close links with the victorious BMW M4 DTM. Alongside the M kidney grille with orange surround, an M logo slides rearwards of the front wheel arches. The number 23 adorns the doors and the flag along with “WIT” and “DTM Champion 2014” lettering on the rear side windows.

The same carbon fibre roof as used on the production model, BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition gets 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. The door sill plates bear Marco Wittmann’s autograph, while carbon interior trim strips – likewise signed by the 24-year-old from Fürth, Germany – feature “DTM Champion 2014” lettering and the car’s serial number. Only a limited number of 23 cars have been made with each model numbered consecutively.

Overwhelmed with joy, Wittmann stated, “It is very special for me to be able to drive every day in a road-going version of the BMW M4 Coupé in the same design as my DTM car. The car looks fantastic. The colours and stripes radiate a dynamic that suits me perfectly. It was a great feeling to drive the first few metres in the car. It goes without saying that moments like that bring back memories of crossing the finish line at the Lausitzring. That was the greatest success of my career so far. I will never forget that day. It is a huge honour that BMW M GmbH dedicated a car to me. It is hard for me to imagine that only 23 people in the world have the pleasure of owning this car. And I am one of them. That is crazy, and something I am extremely proud of”.
