BMW to race the new M4 in the DTM next season.
BMW have announced they will replace the current M3 DTM with the newly unveiled M4 machine next season.

The 4 Series based concept of the production M4 coupe was revealed to the public at the Pebble Beach Automobile weekend in California on Saturday night.

The news from Munich comes at the same time as Lexus, Honda and Nissan unmasked their latest Super GT challengers which share the same technical regulations after Japanese's series recent tie in with the DTM.

“We are all really looking forward to the new BMW M4 DTM,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.

“The BMW Concept M4 Coupé certainly looks fantastic. So will our DTM car for next season – I can already promise all the fans that much.

“The BMW M3 DTM won the title at the first attempt in 2012. We obviously want to follow on from this success with its successor. However, it will still be quite a while until we get to see our new DTM racing car for the first time.”

BMW re-emerged into the DTM with their M3 last season after the legendary touring car first made its debut in 1987.
