BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition announced

BMW has announced plans to celebrate Bruno Spengler's DTM drivers’ title by offering an M3 DTM Champion Edition.

Following a preview ceremony, BMW has finally announced plans to offer an M3 DTM Champion Edition to celebrate Bruno Spengler's DTM drivers’ title.

Drawing inspiration from Spengler's race car, the special edition features a Frozen Black metallic exterior with carbon fiber flaps, dark chrome accents and matte black wheels. There's also DTM-inspired graphics and plenty of M badging.

Interior changes are limited but the model comes nicely equipped with an Alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and black Novillo leather seats with contrasting Palladium Silver accents. Other highlights include GPS navigation, heated front seats and door sill plates which "replicate Spengler’s helmet design."

Power is provided by a 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 420 HP (309 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

The car will go into production in February and only 54 units will be built. German pricing starts at €99,000.00 (including VAT) and buyers will be offered a chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course to get tips directly from Bruno Spengler himself.
