Championship Celebration

BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM in 2012 after almost 20 years away, and the results in its comeback year exceeded all expectations.

When BMW wins a championship they celebrate in style!

Canadian driver Bruno Spengler won the drivers' title, BMW Team Schnitzer finished in top spot in the team standings, and BMW claimed manufacturers' honours.

To celebrate their success, BMW M GmbH has created the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition. Mimicking the looks of Spengler's racing car, the special-edition model is available exclusively in Frozen Black metallic. The exterior also features carbon flaps and gurney, various dark chrome elements, matt black wheels and the BMW M stripe design over the CFRP roof and boot lid.

Carbon fibre aero pieces and CFRP panels reduce weight considerably

Inside, the doorsill 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. Other interior add-ons include a steering wheel trimmed in Alcantara®, a handbrake lever embroidered with "M Power" lettering, and extended black Novillo leather trim with features in contrasting Palladium Silver.

The interior is sporty but gets all the usual refinements including sat-nav

All the usual go-faster bits like the Competition package, M Drive, M DCT Drivelogic and the M Driver's Package are included on the car but this isn't a racetrack special. Despite the hardcore looks and interior, the car is also equipped with sat-nav, PDC and air conditioning.

Only 54 units of the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition will be built and BMW is offering owners 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 himself. The course will be held on the Nürburgring's legendary Nordschleife track, where BMW tests and does the final chassis tuning for all its M cars.

Only 54 examples of the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition will be built

Production of the M3 DTM Champion edition will commence at BMW's Regensburg plant and the BMW M GmbH factory from February 2013 and prices in Germany start from €99,000.00 including VAT.

If you want one of these very special cars you need RM400,000 before taxes!
