[YesAuto Racing Exposure] The DTM Touring Car Race is known as “F1 with a touring car shell”, and it is the top event in the touring car race. Recently, BMW released a new car for the DTM 2014 season, using the exterior design of the BMW M4, and adding a large number of aerodynamics kits on this basis.

The chassis of the new racing car is lower, which can improve the driving stability of the vehicle. The driver's seat is more rearward, which makes the vehicle's center of gravity distribution more reasonable. The body replaced a large number of carbon fiber kits, making it weigh only 1100 kg. The diameter of the forged aluminum alloy wheels is 18 inches, and the matching tire sizes are 300/680 R18 at the front and 320/710 R18 at the rear. (In the tire data, 300 and 320 are the width of the tire, and 680 and 710 are the outer diameter of the tire, both in mm.)

In terms of power, this car is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine produced by BMW. It is equipped with a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The clutch is made of ZF Sachs four-plate carbon fiber products. Its 0-100km/h acceleration time is only 3 About seconds.

Editor's comment: After a strong return to DTM, BMW has won two consecutive annual manufacturer championships (2012 and 2013 seasons), and the momentum is quite strong. There are 10 races in the DTM 2014 season. The 9th race will be held in Guangzhou on September 28. It will be a street race. This is the second time DTM has entered China.
