Video Test: BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition

Deon Schoeman

How does a motorsport-active motor manufacturer like BMW celebrate a Touring Car driver’s championship? Well, it builds a small, once-off batch of special road-going performance cars with a very obvious track bias. Only 15 of these ultra-rare BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition cars made it to South Africa, and RPM got to sample its performance talents at the Aldo Scribante racing circuit in Port Elizabeth.
