A total of six units of the racing M3 will take part in this year’s DTM series and this is one of them, with the car being recently unveiled in Munich. Under the hood, we find a V8 engine that’s “air restricted” to 480 hp, managing to send the racer past the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in around three seconds and on to a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).

"For many years we have put our faith in high-performance Castrol lubricants, and have celebrated countless successes together on the racetrack," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. "For that reason, everyone here at BMW Motorsport is delighted that we are able to build on this established partnership in the DTM. Castrol EDGE and Aral Ultimate are high-performance brands, which suit our DTM project perfectly."
