Here is BMW’s official introduction video of the BMW M3 DTM Concept Car (official press release and info) which will make its appearance in race form for the first time during the 2012 DTM season next year.
The video shows scenes from last week’s unveiling at The Welt. It also traces BMW’s DTM roots – 11 successful years (which ended in 1992) during which BMW was champion 3 times, had 49 victories, and went to the podium over 150 times. Three models were in use, 635csi, 323i, and the M3.
As for performance, the 4.0L 480bhp V8 motor rockets the M3 DTM from 0-100km/h in 3 seconds. Top speed is 300km/h.

Fifth Gear’s Tiff Needell and Vicki Butler-Henderson pit the E92 M3 GTS against the Porsche GT3 RS on the track. On paper, the GT3 RS should trump, but will the real world driving experience bear the same results? Video inside.
Attendees at the M Driving Experience at the Salzburg Ring were lucky enough to witness in person two of BMW M’s newest creations – the BMW F10 M5 and the limited edition lightweight M3 CRT.

Check out some video highlights inside.
The Nurburgring 24 Hour Race has just recently concluded and the BMW No.1 M3 has managed to make the podium with a second place finish! Porsche managed to take the top spot. The No.1 M3 GT managed to consistently move up positions throughout the race. At the 12-13 hour mark, the No.1 M3 was still running 5th, but by the 14th hour, the M3 had moved up to the number 2 position.
Congrats to BMW Motorsports!
