BMW has unveiled the M3 DTM, a high performance race car that will compete in the 2012 DTM (German Touring Car) series. The M3 debuted at BMW Welt in Munich, and is a very exciting event after a two decade absence of BMW at DTM. Between 1987 and 1992, the M3 won 40 race and had over 150 podium finishes in Germany’s premier tin-top series.

This race car features a carbonfibre-reinforced plastic monocoque (CFRP) with a steel roll cage, a six-speed sequential gearbox, and a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8. The M3 produces 480-hp and is capable of achieving a 0-62 mph time in three seconds with a top speed of 186 mph.

Three teams will race M3s in next year’s DTM series including BMW Team Schnitzer, BMW Team RBM and BMW Team RMG. “It is good to see how our DTM project is picking up speed,” explained BMW’s director of development Dr Klaus Draeger. “Next yea, BMW returns to the DTM after two decades. We will be facing our main competitors in the premium sector – and are already looking forward to this challenge.”

BMW M3 CRT Gets An Introduction [Video]

Remember, it’s not a computer monitor. BMW’s hi-po M3, the CRT, gets an introductory video showcasing its array of carbon fiber and suspension enhancements.

If the regular M3 is too boring, the CRT (which stands for Carbon Racing Technology) should liven things up: it gets a carbon fiber hood that’s a quarter of the regular steel’s weight, carbon fiber seats, a titanium exhaust, lighter wheels and brakes, and less sound deadening. The new suspension gets stiffer springs and adjustable coilovers, and the 450-horsepower V8 is attached to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The result? An M3 sedan that’s 100 pounds lighter, but still features the comfort and convenience of the regular M3—like keeping its high-end audio system that you won’t be able to hear anyway. There will be only 67 units produced, each at an eye-watering price of $185,000. In that case, the video below (after the jump) will be the closest any of us will get to owning, or even driving, an example.
