BMW M Unveils BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition Model

”BMW M Unveils BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition Model”

BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM in 2012 after almost 20 years away, 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 in the team standings, and BMW claimed the manufacturers’ honors.

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, matt black wheels and sections of the race car’s livery also betray its close links with the triumphant 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.
The special-edition model also contains various exclusive interior additions, such as the Alcantara® steering wheel, handbrake lever embroidered with “M Power” lettering, and extended black Novillo leather trim with features in 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 more “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. 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. One of the most coveted elements of the BMW Driving Experience programme, the course is held on the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife track, where BMW M cars are put through extremely exacting testing sessions and final chassis tuning is carried out.

The BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition will be built at BMW’s Regensburg plant and the BMW M GmbH factory from February 2013. Prices in Germany start from €99,000.00 including VAT.

Fixed.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any stupider after the Mid-Ohio-Fire-Orange whatever package, BMW's douche bag (i.e. marketing) department comes out with this bullshlt. :facepalm:

I'M SO over BMW. Moving on to another brand next time around. Yeah, I've been saying that for like 4 years now, but I think that I still subconsciously hold out hope. I just keep wasting my time. Come to think of it, simply typing this post was a waste of time. :tsk:

I'm guessing you don't really follow Motorsport, which would explain why you have no clue.

I have a lot of respect for the designers ,the guy at the M factory and all the people that work there but for BMW as a company and the way the discard people that work for them , I had first hand knowledge, I love the cars, but the company there is a lot left to be desired , what ever I put on my car has the M logo or the after market logo not bmw
