This year, BMW Motorsport returned to Germany’s famed DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) racing series after a 20-year absence with a big bang.
The marque’s 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.
No mean feat after two decades, so BMW is celebrating with the cool new BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition, of which only 54 will be made for customers worldwide starting in February.
Designed in homage to Spengler’s winning race car, the special-edition model is available exclusively in Frozen Black metallic with carbon, dark chrome and matte black details.
Inside the car, the door sill strips are made to look like Spengler’s helmet design while the carbon fiber interior trim strip bears his signature.
The coolest part to all intents and purposes is the BMW M stripe running over the roof and trunk.
But buyers also get a spot in the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course on the legendary Nürburgring’s track, where the marque tests its M cars.
The kicker—Spengler himself will be the instructor.
Considering the car costs about $130,000, they could hardly have the German equivalent of Joe Schmo do it…
