BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition

 


BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM in 2012 after almost 20 years, and the results in its comeback year exceeded all expectations. Canadian driver Bruno Spengler won the Drivers’ title, BMW Team Schnitzer finished in top spot, and BMW claimed the Manufacturers’ honours.

The Bavarian car maker’s M division is celebrating this success with the unveiling of the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition. Mimicking the looks of Spengler’s racing car, this special edition is available exclusively in Frozen Black metallic, while the carbon flaps and gurney, various dark chrome elements, matte black wheels and sections of the livery hint at close links with the triumphant BMW M3 DTM. The theme continues with the BMW M stripe design over the carbon fibre reinforced polymer roof and boot lid, BMW M logo at the rear of the front wheel arches and decals in the rear side windows.

Inside the car, the door sill strips replicate Spengler’s helmet design and the carbon-fibre interior trim strip bears the newly crowned champion’s signature and the car’s serial number. Exclusive additions include the alcantara steering wheel, hand brake lever with ’M Power‘ lettering, and extended black Novillo leather trim with contrasting Palladium Silver.

Technical elements like the Competition package, M Drive, M DCT Drivelogic and the M Driver’s Package underline the car’s focus on high performance. Equipment including the Professional navigation system, heated seats and Park Distance Control add everyday ingredients to the model.

BMW M is also offering the 54 new custodians of the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition – which will be available in various international markets – a very special extra. They will have the chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course under the watchful eye of Bruno Spengler. One of the most coveted elements of the BMW Driving Experience programme, is Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife track, where BMW M cars are put through extreme testing sessions and final chassis tuning.
