BMW celebrates its first DTM title after 20 years with a
special edition of the current M3. 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.

Called BMW M3 DTM Champion
Edition, the new model mimicks the looks of Spengler’s racing car.
Available exclusively in Frozen Black metallic, the car features various
dark chrome elements, matt black wheels and sections of the race car’s livery.

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. The interior also features Alcantara steering wheel, handbrake
lever embroidered with “M Power” lettering, and extended black Novillo leather
trim with features in contrasting Palladium Silver.

Along the car, BMW will
also offer its future clients, only 54 units available, the chance to attend
the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course under the watchful
eye of Bruno Spengler.
The BMW M3 DTM Champion
Edition will be built at BMW’s Regensburg plant from February 2013. Prices in
Germany start from €99,000.
