A couple of years back, BMW announced that they will return to the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters racing series in 2012, after a nearly 20 year absence. And in just its first season after its comeback, BMW had won a hat trick of titles (driver, manufacturer and team titles).

To commemorate these incredible accomplishments, BMW is releasing a limited production M3 known as the DTM Champion Edition. The car is designed to look like Canadian driver, Bruno Spengler's M3 DTM racing car. Spengler won the driver's title for the 2012 season.

The car is available exclusively in a frozen black metallic finish. The stealthy look is extended to other parts of the car too. The wheels are finished in matte black and the front grille is given a dark chrome finish. A BMW M stripe covers the carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) roof and boot lid.

BMW M logos are placed on the rear portion of the front fenders and a DTM Champions 2012 decal together with a Canada flag are fixed on the rear side windows.

Interior wise, the door sill strip features the same design from Spengler's racing helmet. Carbon fibre is used to trim the interior's dashboard and centre console. On the dashboard at the front passengerís side, the newly crowned championís signature and the carís serial number are displayed prominently.

This special edition car features numerous exclusive interior additions such as an alcantara steering wheel, handbrake lever stitched with an M Power wording and black Novillo leather trim with features in contrasting Palladium Silver.

BMW is also offering owners of the M3 DTM Champion Edition a chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course under the guidance of Bruno Spengler himself.

BMW mentioned that there will be only 54 units of the M3 DTM Champion Edition and it carries a price tag of 99,000 Euros. BMW did not say which market will get this limited edition ride.
