BMW Unveils M3 DTM Champion Edition
BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM in 2012 after almost 20 years away, and the results in its comeback year exceeded the manufacturer’s expectations. Canadian driver Bruno Spengler won the drivers’ title, BMW Team Schnitzer finished in top spot in the team standings, and BMW claimed the manufacturers’ honours.
BMW M GmbH 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 model is available exclusively in “Frozen Black” metallic, while the carbon flaps and gurney, various dark chrome elements, matte black wheels and sections of the race car’s livery hint at its close links with the BMW M3 DTM. The theme is continued by the BMW M stripe design over the CFRP roof and boot lid, BMW M logo to 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.
Technical elements like the Competition package, M Drive, M DCT Drivelogic and the M Driver’s Package underline the car’s focus on performance.
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: Owners of this automotive rarity will have the chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course under the watchful eye of Bruno Spengler. The course is held on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife track, where BMW M cars undergo testing sessions for final chassis tuning.
