DTM BMW M3

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



DTM racers are scary, aren't they? What may at first glance appear to be an M3 with a few fistfuls of aero glued to it quickly reveals itself to be a terrifyingly forthright and devastating piece of kit. The front arches could have been styled by MC Escher, the flics and canards on the nose would scythe through your shinbones like a warm spoon through ice cream, and that rear diffuser is basically just the shelf from your dad's garage. The CFRP monocoque is hiding a 4.0-litre V8 that snorts to the offbeat tune of 480bhp-odd and, despite the fact that it's broad enough to preclude it from all but the most generous of car parks, it tips the scales at just 1,100kg wet. Hide the kids, this thing's genuinely evil.
