BMW M celebrates DTM triumph with BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition model

posted by Giannis

With the E92 BMW M3 having almost reached the end of its production and sales life, BMW is offering yet another special edition, called “M3 DTM Champion Edition”. According to BMW, the reason behind this special edition is the winning of the 2012 TM Championship driver’s title with Bruno Spengler. As a result, this special edition M3 is mimicking Mr Spengler’s race car, coming in Frozen Black metallic with various details either in carbon or matte black finish. The theme is completed with an M stripe over the CFRP roof and boot lid and some M logos around the car.

The Competition package, M Drive, M DCT Drivelogic and the M Driver’s Package come as standard, as do the Professional navigation system, heated seats and Park Distance Control. The M3 DTM Champion Edition will be produced in a total of 54 units, distributed amongst various international markets. The owners will also have the chance of attending the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course with Bruno Spengler himself. The cost of the package will be at 99.000€ VAT included in Germany.
