Costs a boat load of money. You can not even imagine how much. With the Art car they could use it for marketing, and without one it seems like a moot point to spend that much on a single race with the huge DTM rollout they have underway. The last time they had to change the car after the ACO had previously ok'd it shortly before the race (didn't make people to happy at BMW) that meant an entire new rear end. I would not be surprised to see the ACO to petition them to race and cut some sort of deal now there is officially no Peugeot. BMW hasn't officially announced either direction.
