In just its first season back in DTM race series, BMW pulled off a trifecta of wins (driver's title, manufacturer title and team title), and the automaker is celebrating with a limited-production commemorative version of the M3 called the DTM Champion Edition. BMW said that only 54 of these cars will be produced starting in February, but it did not say in which markets the car will be available. Included in the car's 99,000 euro (about $130,000 in the States) price is the chance to attend the BMW M Fascination Nordschleife driver training course at the Nürburgring.

Designed to look like and celebrate the Team Schnitzer BMW DTM racecar driven by Canadian Bruno Spengler in the 2012 season, the M3 DTM Champion Edition comes exclusively in a Frozen Black metallic paint with matte black wheels and BMW's M stripes running across the carbon roof and decklid. There are fender and rear-quarter-window decals to give it an authentic racecar look. Inside additions include door sill elements that replicate Spengler's helmet design, and his signature and the car's sequence number can be found on the instrument panel's carbon fiber trim.

BMW says the car will be sold in "various international markets," but we doubt we'll ever see it on sale in the US. Scroll down for BMW's press release.Continue reading BMW celebrates DTM win with limited edition M3
