Win the DTM... get a modified BMW M4 as a company car
Kermit green, modified M4 Coupe handed over to touring car champ Marco Wittman
Company cars. A minefield of four-cylinder diesel BMWs and Audis kitted out in the motoring equivalent of tracksuit bottoms and trainers, all piling into the outside lane of the M1.
Not so Marco Wittman’s new company car. For Marco Wittman is the 2016 DTM champion - the German touring car series - driving for BMW. And BMW has very kindly handed him the keys to a very unique, modified BMW M4. That’s the coupe, don’t forget.
Not only is it painted in a green even Kermit would be envious of (officially called Java Green), but it also gets a catalogue of M Performance parts Wittman himself has selected for his new road car.
They are thus: a carbon rear diffuser, a new rear spoiler, front grille slats in high-gloss black, carbon trim for the gearshift, pedal pads and LED illuminated door sills. Cool paint and wing, as you’ll agree, though we’re not so sure about those wheels.
Of course, Wittman also gets a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine, 425bhp, a whopping 405lb ft of torque and a lot of sideways. Bit spikey, that M4.
“The colour suits me very well, because I love being on the road in a slightly more conspicuous car,” explains Wittman. Ah yes, road car. Wittman’s other company car is of course, the hardcore M4 DTM. This year, he won his second DTM title, and becomes the youngest two-time DTM champion of all time. He’s only 26.
What do you lot make of Marco’s new company wheels?
