Ahead of the final round of testing prior to the 2017 DTM Series, Mercedes AMG Motorsport DTM Team launched the new liveries of its cars.
This new design will feature ‘digital flow’ which will be seen on the side of all the cars which will be a common element on all Mercedes AMG Motorsport works teams this year.
The basic design of the DTM cars will be the same as the Formula One Silver Arrows driven by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. The F1 WO8 EQ Power+ also features the distinctive electric blue airflow design from the front wing to the ends of the side pods.
Briton Gary Paffett will take to track this year in a silver Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM and Robert Wickens in an anthracite version – both sporting Petronas-green digital flow elements.
Lucas Auer and 2016 championship runner up Edoardo Mortara will take ownership of the two “Pink Panthers” in their BWT sponsored cars. These will feature magenta digital flow elements.
DTM returnee Maro Engel and 2010 DTM champion Paul di Resta will have orange digital flow on their machines.
Engel will line up in the silver and anthracite SILBERPFEIL Energy Mercedes whilst Di Resta will be in the white TV Spielfilm Mercedes.
This new design will not just feature on track as it will also feature on drivers’ overalls, team trucks, pit walls and various other places.
