Ultimate Collector BMW?

Last year was the first year BMW Motorsport had competed in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), a German racing series for touring cars, since they’d participated in its predecessor, the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, back in the 90s. You can check out this article on Wikipedia for more details on the series and its history.  Or you might want to check out the official DTM website (they have an English version) for more details on the various cars and drivers.

It seems BMW was quite pleased with its performance. It received the manufacturer’s honours, its team finished in top place, and Canadian driver Bruno Spengler claimed the drivers’ title. As a result, they’ll be releasing a limited edition BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition. It comes in Frozen Black metallic, with lots of carbon fibre trim, and is meant to look like Spengler’s winning car. It’s set off outside with a BMW M stripe running over the hood and trunk, and BMW M logos and decals.

Inside, there’s more carbon fibre trim sporting Spengler’s signature and the car’s serial number, door sills copying Spengler’s helmet design, and lots of leather trim. Lots of goodies under the hood, too, including the Competition package, and the M Driver’s Package. And to top it all off, each new owner has the chance to take the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course, run by Spengler himself.

The cars (there will only be 54 of them) are currently being built in Germany and will start around €99,000.00.
