BMW Reveals 2012 M3 DTM Concept car images

July 29th, 2011

The German luxury carmaker Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, or BMW for short, has recently revealed the first batch of official 2012 M3 DTM Concept Car images. This particular model is being developed to go head-to-head with rival luxury brands Mercedes-Benz and Audi.

Dr. Klaus Draeger is a member of BMW’s Board of Management. He confirmed that the brand will face serious competition in its premium cars line up. Draeger expressed that BMW will face this challenge with much vigor. It seems that the return of the DTM concept car shows that the German carmaker is looking back to its past of producing race cars.

When the 2012 M3 DTM Concept Car images were revealed, two champion drivers from the BMW Motorsport—Augusto Fafus and Andy Priaulx—were also introduced. The BMW Welt, which is the BMW multifunction exhibition facility in Munich, features the BMW M3 DTM Concept Car.

The BMW M3 DTM Concept Car comes with a V-8 Engine with 480 ponies and runs from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds. The top speed figure is 300 km/h. This new baby will get a 6-speed manual transmission and a CFRP monococque chasis.

The luxury carmaker BMW has three teams ready to race this season, they are the BMW Team RMG, the BMW Team RBM, and the BMW Team Schnitzer. Along with other BMW sponsors and partners, the three race teams work closely to tweak the M3 DTM race car to perfection in preparation for the upcoming race season.
