The German based automaker BMW has recently revealed its 2012 M3 DTM safety car, which will be run on the track by three teams.
The 2012 M3 DTM safety car has been revealed quietly revealed on Facebook, just like the new generation of the BMW 3-Series, and even if the new generation of the BMW M3 is just about to hit the market, based on the new 3-Series (F30), the company has chosen to use the E92 version. The new BMW M3 DTM safety car might have been officially revealed, but the car manufacturer didn’t release any details on it, so for now we will have to settle for some rumors, which are saying that the 2012 BMW DTM safety car’s engine is expected to develop less than the DTM racers’ 480 horsepower and its top speed should stand around 186 mph.
The 2012 DTM season will be more interesting than in previous years with the field expanding to three manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW, and nine teams. This season will also pave the way for next year’s North American DTM series, which is expected to run in conjunction with NASCAR. This will only be the start of a globally competition, after the Grand Touring Series is expected to unite the DTM in Germany with North America’s Grand Am Series and Japan’s Super GT in 2015.
