BMW Celebrates DTM Victory With New Special Edition M3
Motorsports has always been deeply entwined in the DNA of BMW, but 20 years ago, the company backed out of the DTM racing series in their home country of Germany. Now, after that two decade hiatus BMW returned with the M3, and dominated the series winning the Drivers’, Teams’ and Manufacturers’ titles in a total sweep. To celebrate this tremendous success BMW is celebrating with a special edition BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition. The car is modeled after Bruno Spengler’s racing car - Bruno is the man who took home that Drivers’ Title for BMW – and comes exclusively in Frozen Black metallic paint. Carbon fiber flaps and gurney, dark chrome trim pieces and menacing matte black wheels help complete the look. To add one last dash of visual flair, the BMW M stripe runs down the length of the CRFP roof and trunk lid, while M decals adorn the front wheel arches, and DTM Championship 2012 decals in the rear quarter windows.
The interior receives special treatment as well with carbon fiber interior trim, an Alcantara® steering wheel and “M Power” embroidery across the handbrake. In another tribute Spengler, the door sill strips are designed to replicate his helmet and his signature is across the dashboard trim. The serial number of the limited edition car will also be seen inscribed on the dash. The black Novillo leather trim has also been extended through the cabin and features Palladium Silver contrast stitching.
