Stage set for a Class 1 era: A minute demeanour during a new BMW M4 DTM for a many absolute DTM ever.

Munich. 2019 welcomes a new Class 1 epoch in a DTM. BMW M
Motorsport has built a many absolute DTM automobile ever: a BMW M4 DTM,
has been mutated in suitability with Class 1 regulations. At the
heart of a automobile is a newly grown BMW P48 two-litre turbo
engine. Combined with a significantly lighter car, a performance
total are zero brief of considerable and concede speeds of adult to
300 km/h. We give we an overview of a categorical differences between
this season’s competition automobile and a 2018 version.

Engine / dull system.

The biggest creation in a BMW M4 DTM is a engine. The
four-litre V8 engine P66 has been transposed by a state-of-the-art,
newly grown turbo engine – a P48. The ability of this power
territory is usually half that of a V8 predecessor, nonetheless it still generates
distant some-more energy with reduction consumption. Like a BMW prolongation engines,
a P48 is a turbocharged, true two-litre engine with approach fuel injection.

The dull complement had to be redesigned totally for a new
turbo engine. The BMW M4 DTM, in suitability with Class 1 regulations,
has a most shorter dull siren on usually a right side of a car. The
finish of a dull siren is located towards a centre of a door,
subsequent to a vents. Unlike in a past, there is no second dull pipe
on a left side of a car.


The DTM has introduced a push-to-pass duty for a first
time in 2019. At a hold of a button, a drivers can call on adult to
30 PS of additional engine power. This is probable regulating an additional
customary part, a fuel upsurge restrictor. The boost in energy is
achieved by temporarily permitting some-more fuel to be injected into the
4 cylinders of a P48 turbo engine.

Rear wing / DRS.

The behind wing of a BMW M4 DTM is 520 millimetres wider than
that on a 2018 car. It also has only one section. The DTM adopted
a judgment of a customary partial from a Japanese Super GT
Championship. The behind wing still has DRS (Drag Reduction System), in
a form of a pneumatic strap mechanism, that reduces a volume of
aerodynamic drag generated by a car.

Car weight.

The imperative weight of a new BMW M4 DTM when dull is now
reduction than 1,000 kg. The automobile contingency now import a smallest 981 kg without
motorist or fuel. That is 50 kg reduction than final season. The combination
of some-more engine energy and reduction weight means a BMW M4 DTM has a
significantly reduce energy to weight ratio of 1.6 kg/hp. This should
safeguard that a cars strech a 300 km/h symbol on a fastest sections
of lane on a DTM calendar, such as a Parabolica during a Hockenheimring.

Number plate.

In suitability with Class 1 regulations, there will be no number
image on a BMW M4 DTM in 2019. This increases a distance of the
intakes for a cooling system. The opening of a evil BMW
radiator griddle has also been optimised.

Cooling vents.

The distance of a cooling vents in a carp has been increased
significantly for a intercooler of a two-litre turbo engine.

Front splitter.

The tab of a front splitter has been reduced by adult to
90 millimetres. This alteration creates a BMW M4 DTM some-more strong in
wheel-to-wheel battles.


The diffuser on a BMW M4 DTM has been lowered by 30
millimetres and a start of a diffuser ramp has been changed behind 870 millimetres.

Rear windscreen.

The opening on a behind windscreen of a BMW M4 DTM is also new.
It allows optimised movement of a interior.

Other than that, a aerodynamics sojourn unvaried compared to
2018. With this multiple of tried-and-tested and modified
aerodynamic components, a concentration shifts even some-more resolutely towards the
driver. At a same time, it avoids an aerodynamic arms competition between
a manufacturers.


The new firewall in a interior, that shields a cockpit
directly behind a driver, creates a automobile even safer. As a
consequence, there is no interior counterpart from 2019. Instead, a BMW
M4 DTM is versed with a rear-view camera and display.
