BMW M4 DTM Special Edition Puts Up A Fight Against Mercedes-AMG GT R

The BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition was unveiled after Marco Wittman won the 2016 DTM driver’s title, and was a limited run of only 200 units.

Mind you, it’s not just an M4 with a fancy paintjob and some extras thrown in. In fact, it’s also a very competent one in a straight line, as it utilizes the same water injection system as the hardcore M4 GTS, pumping out a total of 500 PS (493 HP) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque.

According to the Bavarian automaker, the M4 DTM will get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds, before topping out at 305 km/h (189 mph).

On the other side of the track is the Mercedes-AMG GT R, packing 585 PS and even more torque than the Bimmer, at 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). On paper, it should also out-sprint the M4 in the 0-100 km run by roughly 0.2 seconds, although the difference is so small that, in real world conditions, things might prove to be a bit different.

Moreover, the AMG GT R is the heavier car here, by a considerable 120 kg (265 lbs). So who do you think won this drag race? The answer lies in the video that follows right after the jump.

    i never thought drag races would bore me one day. they are all moot points now, since Tesla’s ev’s rips em all up. Not far off, merc and many others will be doing battle with their ev’s too.
