BMW revealed their livery for the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters 2012 at Heidelberg in Germany, featuring the classic while, red and blue colors.
“Old-school DTM fans will recognise from the typical BMW M stripes that the appearance is based on the original BMW M3 cars from the “old DTM”. We are very proud of this design. It is both traditional and modern in equal measures. It shows our roots, but in a contemporary style,” said BMW Motorsport Director, Jens Marquardt.
BMW reports that the car shown in Heidelberg is close to the final design, but that more work is left to be done before the homologation deadline in March next year.
“The car’s aerodynamics were developed in close collaboration with the engineers from series production. The BMW Group boasts impressive resources in this field and the wind tunnels are ultra-modern. This – and the Title Partner BMW M Performance Accessories – shows that the entire company is behind the 2012 DTM project and is working hard towards it,” said Marquardt.
BMW Motorsport driver Dirk Werner is going to drive a number of demonstration laps during the 2011 DTM finale at Hockenheim this weekend with the 2012 BMW M3 DTM.
