Can anyone explain why there are so many liveries?

If it were up to me every car would be in black. They all look seriously badass.

But wow the cars look fantastic, and this is going to be a very exciting series.

Does anyone know if they all share the same engines, or is each engine designed and built seperately by each manufacturer to the same specs (4.0L V8)? If the latter, I wonder if BMW uses a P60-based design, or something newer like an S65-based design, or maybe something new from the ground up.
Each has their own engine program, same specs 4.0L V8. BMW engine is new from the ground up. No relation to anything they sell. As new to this years rule package, the cars do share 50 components. All cars now share parts including: monocoque chassis, engine subframe, same wheelbase, transmission, etc. This was done to reduce costs, one of the only reason BMW agreed to rejoin the series.

Steering Wheel

Does anyone have a picture of the BMW DTM Steering Wheel? Reason is, I'd like to see a replica made by Fanatec wheels for simulation racing since they are already making a GT2 replica. Let me know! thanks

Speed used to show DTM at 3am during the wintertime. I don't believe these races are available anywhere in the US any longer.
