Technical details

Like all racing cars in the DTM, the C-Class W203 DTM only looks like the eponymous series cars, constructed is the prototype of a CFK - monocoque chassis with an integrated 15.4-imperial gallons fuel tank. Since refuelling at this time was still allowed in the race, a 26.4-imperial gallons tank was not built. The C-Class W203 DTM is powered by a 4,000 cc (4.0 L; 244.1 cu in) Mercedes-Benz naturally-aspirated V8 engine, power output approximately 476 hp (355 kW; 483 PS) and maximum torque more than 490 N?m (361 lbf?ft). The rear-wheel drive C-Class DTM has a sequential 6-speed sports transmission, a 3-plate carbon fiber clutch supplied by Sandtler (2004-2006) and an adjustable multi-disc limited-slip differential.
