BMW M4 Champion Edition and 1-Series DTM Sport Edition

BMW has produced new M4 Champion Edition and 1-Series DTM Sport Edition packs to celebrate its DTM Championship wins

To celebrate its wins in the 2014 DTM Drivers' and Team Championship, BMW has announced the addition of a Champion Edition package for its M4 and DTM Sport Edition package for its 1-Series line-ups. The M4 package will be limited to 23 units, whilst the 1-Series' package will replace the M Sport trim level and will be available to order from November. The packages celebrate 24-year old Marco Wittman's dominant 2014 campaign with BMW Team RMG in the premiere German motorsport class.

Ordering an M4 Champion Edition will see buyers receive their 425bhp sports coupe painted in Alpine White with a matt-black bonnet and bootlid, with multi-coloured stripes running along the length of the car - mimicking the livery of the Championship winning M4 DTM car. Other additions to the twin-turbocharged straight-six two-door are orange surrounds on the kidney grilles, M badges behind the front wheel arches, as well as number 23 and 'DTM Champion' stickers. Bodywork and wheels are all carried over from the usual M Performance Parts range, and the interior recieves some signed carbon trim and door sill-plates.

The second BMW to recieve a new Championship celebrating model is the 1-Series. Examples of the hatch fitted with the DTM Sport Edition pack will recieve new 18-inch star-spoke 386 M alloys - replacing the M Sport 17-inch items - as well as xenon headlights, high-gloss black interior trim and contrasting Oxide Silver accents. The bodywork is all carried over directly from the M Sport package, as is the option of sports suspension. Engine choices remain the same for the range.

The main attraction for the new 1-Series pack is a substantial reduction in price. Customers will make a saving of around £2300 as the price drops from the M Sport package, which will no longer be available to order.

BMW Team RMG, the carmaker's DTM racing outfit, also announced that it would be retaining Wittman for the 2015 DTM season. Part of his Championship winning prize is a test in a Toro Rosso Formula 1 car.
