Earlier this week BMW announced that in 2014, the all-new BMW M4 will enter the DTM championship.
“We are all really looking forward to the new BMW M4 DTM,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “The BMW Concept M4 Coupé certainly looks fantastic. So will our DTM car for next season – I can already promise all the fans that much. The BMW M3 DTM won the title at the first attempt in 2012. We obviously want to follow on from this success with its successor. However, it will still be quite a while until we get to see our new DTM racing car for the first time.”
Furthermore, Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, President of BMW M, says that “with the launch of the BMW Concept M4 Coupé, we are now laying the foundation for a new era, both on the road and on the racetrack. The reactions to the Concept Car have so far been overwhelming. It is almost a matter of course to use it as the basis for a motorsport version. The DTM is obviously the ideal platform for this step. All fans of BMW M and the DTM certainly have good reason to start looking forward to 2014.”
We have asked rendering artist Jon Sibal to show us what the BMW M4 DTM could look like. The rendering uses design elements from the current M3 DTM car coupled with the new and already aggressive M4 design.
