BMW has officially revealed its new M3 DTM race-going car in these pics and videos. The vehicle will compete in the DTM racing category from 2012 and this concept should prove to be quite close to the definitive version next year. The BMW M3 DTM has an air restricted 4.0-litre V8 engine with 480 hp, a top speed of about 300 km/hr and an acceleration to 100 km/hr time of three seconds. It gets a six-speed sequential gearbox.
The new BMW DTM racer will be driven by Andy Priaulx and Augusto Farfus in BMW’s return to DTM racing and competition with Mercedes and Audi. Not to be outdone, Audi has also released its first pic of the new Audi A5 DTM model, codenamed the R17. It replaces the old Audi A4 DTM racer and should have about 460 hp when it hits the track.
