What do you mean older chassis?

The current BMW dtm car is brand new. DTM cars have zero to do with road going vehicles, they are one-off race cars. Benz, Audi, BMW all share the same carbon monocoque. All makes are basically using clean sheet design cars this year, because of new rules.

I am not sure you even know what your talking about.
