We’ve just had a chance at the 2014 NYIAS to sit down and discuss the all-new M3/M4 with the M3/M4 project manager, Michael Wimbeck (pictured) and M3/M4 product manager for BMW NA, Victor LeLeu.

Thanks to these two gentlemen, here are some hopefully enlightening answers.

It is all change for the reigning DTM manufacturers’ champions as for 2014 the brand new BMW M4 DTM will take the place of the successful BMW M3 DTM. The 2013 car went out on a high as, when Timo Glock won the final race of the season, this was the 51st victory of the BMW M3 in the prestigious touring car series. Add to that the fact that Marco Wittmann was the Rookie of the Year, Augusto Farfus was second in the drivers’ title race and BMW, with five wins, was on the top step of the podium more than either of its competitors, and it is obvious it was a good year for BMW Motorsport in the DTM.
