BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM this year with a bang, after almost 20 years away from the series. Canadian driver Bruno Spengler won the drivers’ title, BMW Team Schnitzer topped the team standings, and BMW claimed the manufacturers’ honours. And to celebrate the stylish comeback, BMW M GmbH is unveiling this M3 DTM Champion Edition.

Mimicking the looks of Spengler’s race car, this special-edition model is available exclusively in Frozen Black metallic, while the carbon flaps and gurney, various dark chrome elements, matte black wheels and sections of the race car’s livery also hint at the BMW M3 DTM.

The theme is continued by the M stripe design over the CFRP roof and boot lid, M logo to the rear of the front wheel arches and decals on the rear side windows.

Inside, the door sill strips replicate Spengler’s helmet design and the carbon-fibre interior trim strip bears the newly crowned champ’s signature and the car’s serial number. The DTM Champion Edition also gets goodies like an Alcantara steering wheel, handbrake lever embroidered with “M Power” lettering, and extended black Novillo leather trim with features in contrasting Palladium Silver.

As the ultimate M3, it also comes with the division’s Competition package, M Drive, M DCT Drivelogic and the M Driver’s Package.

There’s more. The car’s 54 lucky owners will have the chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course under the watchful eye of Bruno Spengler himself! Held on the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife track, it’s one of the most coveted elements of the BMW Driving Experience programme.

German pricing for the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition starts from €99,000 (RM393,393) including VAT.
