BMW has revealed the first official images of a limited-edition M3¬†dubbed¬†DTM Champion Edition. ¬†The car is heavily inspired by the race-winning¬†M3¬†driven by Canadian pilot Bruno¬†Spengler.
The DTM Champion Edition is finished in matte black and features M stripes on the roof and on the trunk lid. ¬†The rims and the calipers are also painted black, giving the car a sinister look. ¬†The rear windows wear a touch of color thanks to a sticker that pays homage to Spengler¬†and his latest victory.
All DTM Champion Edition cars are equipped with the Competition Package that was introduced on last year's M3. ¬†It consists of air intakes on the hood, black wheels, a carbon fiber spoiler on the trunk lid and a discreet splitter mounted below the front bumper.
On the inside, the front passengers are treated to bucket seats upholstered in black leather with contrasting light blue stitching. ¬†The dashboard and the center console are both fitted with carbon fiber trim and Spengler's signature is engraved above the glove box.
BMW did not mention¬†whether it has made any modifications to the M3's 4.0-liter V8 engine.
Only 54 examples of the M3 DTM Champion Edition will be built, a number chosen to celebrate BMW's 54th win in Germany's¬†DTM racing series. ¬†Available to order now, the Champion Edition carries a base price of ¬†€99,000 (roughly $129,000) in Germany. ¬†Whether or not the car will be offered in the United States is not currently known.
