In 2016, BMW launched the DTM Champion Edition launched on an M4 basis. This allowed the fans to take part in the celebrations for the DTM title. In contrast to the basic M4, the twin-turbo in-line six-cylinder of the Champion Edition had water injection (from the GTS) to increase performance to 500 PS and 600 Newton meters. It went into the three-digit range in just 3,8 seconds and the top speed was electronically limited to 305 km / h. There was also an unmistakable foil in the BMW Motorsport design and some aerodynamic aids. The front apron got a splitter, there were side flicks made of carbon and a large wing at the rear. In contrast to the GTS, the elements are not adjustable, but they were a good compromise for occasional use on the racetrack. With many other details such as a 3-way coilover kit, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, carbon-ceramic brakes, safety cage, bucket seats, etc., BMW drove the price of the limited edition of 200 vehicles to a staggering 148.500 euros.
708 PS in the Manhart MH4 GTR
And the BMW traditional tuner has just such a strictly limited and super rare specimen Manhart Performance pre-buttoned. The result is a weapon with 708 HP and a huge 980 NM torque. The tuner with the "MH4 GTR" designation is hiding the output for now. While Manhart usually takes on the performance in the vehicle designation, this time it is not apparent to the outsider. But the twin-turbo six-cylinder received a significant upgrade. There was a carbon intake from Arma, an ECU remapping (chip tuning), a new intercooler from CSF, charge pipes made of aluminum and a flap sports exhaust system made of stainless steel. It was installed in combination with additional downpipes, which are not TÜV-compliant without catalysts and are only installed for export, but generate the mentioned 708 PS and 980 Nm torque as a package. Such a huge increase in performance naturally calls for reinforcement from the seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Here, too, an upgrade has been carried out, but the chassis and carbon-ceramic brake system have been left unchanged. If you want, you can also have Manhart components installed here.
Manhart rims in 20 inch format
Typical Champion Edition are the extroverted spoiler and the decorative stripes in the M colors on a white background, less Champion Edition are the additional carbon front spoiler with additional lip, the huge rear wing and the mighty carbon diffuser. These are all components from Manhart Performance, which are impressively rounded off with an additional spoiler lip on the trunk lid and carbon mirror caps. And the M star spoke 666 rims from BMW have been exchanged for Manhart rims in the format 9 × 20 inches at the front and 10,5 × 20 inches at the rear with 255/35 and 295/30 slippers. And finally, there was even an upgrade in the cabin. Manhart installed a chic Alcantara steering wheel, there were lightweight Recaro bucket seats with partial leather covers and a few carbon trim elements.
