Just two weeks after the official roll-out of the new racing car for the 2012 DTM season, BMW's just dropped the BMW M3 DTM Concept Car.
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt unveiled the car earlier this evening in the Double Cone building at Munich's BMW Welt. As part of the DTM event in the Olympic Stadium, the BMW M3 DTM Concept Car will be on show to motorsport fans and visitors to BMW Welt all weekend.
BMW Media releaseThe M3 DTM concept's designed to provide an initial impression of what the BMW M3 DTM will look like when it lines up at the start of the 2012 season. Underneath the deadly-looking exterior is a 480 bhp air-restricted V8 engine mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox. That should be more than enough power to push the carbon fiber monocoque chassis-ed body around the track.
Now they just need to merge Super GT and DTM.
