Here are some photos from DTM race in Munich this past June.
I don't believe he was comparing technology of the two series. But rather in each respective series the cars are similar and nothing like a production road going car.

Yes DTM is much more advanced. But Audi, Benz, and BMW DTM cars are very similar due to the regulations. Engine size and power output are nearly the same. Only big difference is the aero packages.

I see the point he is trying to make.
