To the victor go the spoils. The victor in this year’s DTM championship is Marco Wittmann, and his spoils come in the form of the specially prepared BMW M4 coupe pictured here.
Less than a month after winning Germany’s top touring car championship for the second time, Marco Wittmann swung by BMW Welt in Munich to take delivery of his prize.
The bright green M4 isn’t quite as extreme as the version he drives on track, but it’s far from showroom stock. It’s been upgraded with an array of components from the BMW M Performance Parts catalog, including new side sills, rear spoiler, carbon-fiber rear diffuser and a gloss black front grille.
“My new company car looks great and is a really fantastic drive,” said Wittmann. “The color suits me very well, because I love being on the road in a slightly more conspicuous car. BMW M Performance Parts refine the already awesome BMW M4 Coupe and turn it into a valuable and unique one-off. Marco’s new Bimmer also features an enhanced cabin with a new shifter, pedals and illuminated door sills.
Nice work if you can get it, and Wittmann has certainly earned it. The German driver started in DTM in 2013, won his first title in 2014, and his second this year. That makes him the first BMW driver to win two DTM titles, and the youngest double champion in the history of the series.
