BMW M4 Coupe DTM Safety Car To Lead 2014 Pack
|   Monday, May 12, 2014
In the 2014 season of DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters), BMW Motorsport has eight DTM BMW M4 models, and is also represented by the new car at the head of the grid, based on the BMW M4 model: BMW M4 Coupe DTM Safety Car. It joins the BMW M6 Safety Car for Moto GP in the range of cars that adjusts the tempo on circuits around the world.

The BMW M4 Coupe debuts as a safety car during the race at Nürburgring (Germany), taking place on August 17, 2014.
The BMW M4 Coupe combines the genes of motorsport with the qualities for use on public roads, all in a well balanced concept full of emotion.

A completely new engine - in line six-cylinder unit, M TwinPower Turbo technology - develops 431 hp and generates a maximum torque of 550 Nm over a wide range of revs. This allows the BMW M4 Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds.

"Having decided to start the 2014 DTM season with a new challenger, in the form of the BMW M4 DTM, it was a logical step to have BMW M GmbH put together a BMW M4 Coupé DTM Safety Car. To lead the DTM field out in style, the safety car itself must also be extremely sporty. The BMW M4 Coupé certainly provided us with the basis to achieve this" stated BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.

To drive safely, the 23 DTM Safety Car models must demonstrate supreme sportiness on the circuit. A powerful powertrain, high performance chassis and perfect handling in all weather conditions are mandatory requirements. As a consequence, the BMW M4 Coupe, with many BMW M Performance parts, scores max points in many sectors, and is much lighter thanks to intelligent lightweight design.

Since the winter of 2013, a team of BMW M employees began the work of transforming the coupe model that was already impressive in a safety car able to take a leading role in the DTM. The basic version was assembled at the BMW plant in Munich. From there, the BMW M4 Coupe was sent to the BMW M factory in Garching, where assembly and modifications were continued manually.

These changes have included the removal of the rear seat by technicians, and installing a safety cell and Recaro sports seats with Schroth safety belts required by a safety car. In addition, the car was equipped with a LED front bar, radio communication system, LED lights on the roof and a special design.

Above all was the extensive use of BMW M Performance components - from exhaust system damping, front splitter, the black color of the radiator grille, rearview mirrors caps, panel switches and rear spoiler, until, or the rear diffuser - technicians prepared the BMW M4 Coupe for its appearances on the racing track.
To achieve all the changes about two months were needed. The BMW M Performance components proved how attractive those components that are available for all BMW customers are.
