I don't read German but I know there were a few modifications to the car's ABS system, it had a racing fuel cell, roll cage, and competition seats added. Carbon ceramic brakes were removed since they are not allowed in its class and it ran on different wheels.
It's based on a stock car, but quite a lot of modifications had to be done before entering the race...

The rear Wheel Arches had to be modified to make room for the larger tires and the ABS had to be reprogrammed. The photos also illustrate that it wasn't just a stock car anymore... Althought it's impressive that the suspension etc seems to be stock.
