KW Studios have announced that an official DTM 2023 car pack will be coming to their Raceroom product in “mid-December”, featuring 23 cars from the now GT3-based Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters.

Their text:

Official DTM 2023 Car Pack coming to RaceRoom
The most realistic DTM Experience yet.

RaceRoom has a long history with the DTM and we’re excited to continue our collaboration with a grid of stunning GT cars that starred in this year’s championship season. Featuring 23 cars and the latest models from Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-AMG, our DTM 2023 pack will throw you into one of the most hard-fought GT3 series around.

We’re proud to add Ferrari’s 296 GT3 to RaceRoom, complementing the 488 GT3 that was added for our 2021 DTM pack; Emil Frey Racing’s pair of entries represent the Prancing Horse. A trio of teams ran the Audi R8 LMS Evo II, Abt, Engstler and Attempto, entering five cars in total. Schubert and Project 1 represent BMW, with four M4 GT3s. Six Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evos raced across the HRT, Mann-Filter, BWT and the American Winward teams. Last but not least, Toksport WRT, KUS Team Bernard and the iconic Manthey EMA squads fielded six of the latest Porsche 911 GT3 R (992).

The 296 packs a serious punch and only looks forward. Modern and daring in design, this mid-rear engined monster delivers 600hp from its 2.9-litre, twin-turbocharged V6.

The car won in its debut appearance at the Nürburging 24 Hours, held on the fearsome Nordschleife circuit, and took one victory in the 2023 DTM season at the Lausitzring.

Audi’s R8 LMS GT3 Evo II is another new model to RaceRoom. The Evo II continues to sharpen the razor that is the R8 LMS: even faster, with even more efficient aero and uprated suspension, its growling V10 powerplant is instantly recognisable.

Developed in 2008 and first raced in 2009, to date almost 300 R8s have been produced across two model generations and multiple evolutions. R8s have notched up 13 overall victories in 24-hour endurance races and eight in 12-hour events – along with countless individual race wins – to cement the model’s place in GT3’s pantheon.

The BMW M4 GT3, Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) and Mercedes-AMG GT3 add new 16 DTM 2023 liveries to car models which are already available in-game.

The Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters remains an iconic brand in its new GT3 guise, still a proudly German series at heart but with international reach and recognition.

Over the last decade the series had been on an uphill trajectory and working towards a global expansion – with a tie-up with the Japanese GT Series and a possible move into America on the cards – just as the global pandemic hit. Plans were thrown up in the air, but the DTM immediately changed course, adopting the GT3 rules set to build the foundations for this new, exciting era.

Of course, it’s not the first major change of regulations for the DTM: the championship has always moved with the times. Its predecessor, the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, ran from 1984 till 1996, and evolved through standard Group A touring cars to the techno-monsters of the mid-90s like the Mercedes 190E Evo 2 or Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI.

Within a few years the new DTM was born, involving a small name change but a huge change in philosophy: in came bespoke, more powerful machinery, initially coupés but then four-door models to fit more in a ‘touring car’ philosophy. However, by the 2010s DTM racers had morphed into virtual prototypes built on single-seater chassis, enclosed in silhouette coupé bodywork and aggressive aero.

Along with this new DTM 2023 release, you can also dive into the RaceRoom store to experience cars from these earlier eras of DTM, with classic cars and famous drivers plus full grids from 2013-2016. We’ve also got a number of epic tracks that have featured on the DTM calendar across the years.

Raceroom’s DTM 2023 pack will be released in mid December, and will be available for purchase as a Car Pack on game.raceroom.com/store. Watch out for exciting news about the official DTM Esports series that will use these cars.

Manthey’s Thomas Preining took the DTM 2023 title in his Porsche 911 GT3 R on the final race weekend: which car will you choose, and how will you get on?!
