Some have an Octavia or an Astra as a company car, Marco Wittmann has this.
Only two weeks after handing out a brand new M2 Coupe to MotoGP champ Marc Marquez, BMW has an even nicer gift for another title winner. Works driver Marco Wittmann recently crowned DTM champion for the second time after his 2014 success has taken delivery of an M4 painted in Java Green. In order to grant “greater motor racing feeling,” the high-performance coupe has been fitted with an assortment of M Performance bits.
Wittmann received the keys to his new company car at BMW Welt in Munchen, Germany earlier this month and as you would imagine he was more than pleased with the upgrades:
“My new company car looks great and is a really fantastic drive. The colour 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. Many thanks to BMW, the BMW M GmbH and to BMW M Performance Parts. I will enjoy every kilometer in my new car.”
The changes over a standard M4 start on the outside where the body has received glossy black front grille slats, side panel attachments, along with a carbon fiber treatment for the rear diffuser and spoiler. The interior cabin was also subjected to a few modifications, including LED-illuminated door sills, a carbon trim for the gear selector, and new pedal pads.
These items are just the tip of the iceberg taking into account BMW has no less than 1,300 M Performance goodies for a plethora of models, including the new 5 Series. The latest entries in the ever growing catalog are currently being exhibited at the Essen Motor Show where BMW is displaying eight cars.
To celebrate Wittmann’s DTM triumph, BMW is launching an M4 DTM Champion Edition limited to 200 units. It’s basically an M4 GTS with a different livery and available for €148,500 a pop in Germany.
