I wonder which car they will use in 2012. OK, it will be a M3, but which generation?

In 2012 the new 3 series Coupe won't be on the market. But if they will race with the E91, the car will be outdated just one year later.

Hmmm...

too bad that DTM cars don't have much in common anymore with "normal" street legal cars... just look at all the spoilers etc...

then:


now:


don't get me wrong, DTM is still better than nascar for example, but still... it's lost some if its appeal imo.

The technical regulations of the DTM will get changed for 2012. One of BMWs preconditions for re-entering the series was that the DTM cars must be nearer to street cars.

Do all current DTM cars use V8s?
