BMW’s Motorsport division has officially pulled the wraps off the new M4 DTM, which will be making its racing debut on the 4th of May, at Hockenheim.
The brand new BMW M4 DTM has a lightweight construction and it’s weighing in at 1,110 kg (2,447 lbs), with the driver included. The model in question stands at 4,775 mm long, 1,950 mm wide and 1,200 mm tall, sitting on 18-inch forged alloy wheels, wrapped in Hankook tires. The development of BMW’s newest race car has began before last year’s season and now the model is finally ready to be making its debut officially, at Hockenheim, in a couple of months.
BMW will be making the official ITR tests in Budapest, Hungary, at the end of this month, and then, in April, the M4 DTM will be going to Hockenheim, Germany. Power to the BMW M4 DTM is being provided by a V8 naturally aspirated engine, which is producing a total output of 480 HP (358 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. The racer has adjustable shock absorbers, double wishbone axle, hydraulic braking system and much more.
