2012 BMW M3 DTM race car looks fast sitting still
Underneath its high-tech composite skin lurks a 480-horsepower 4.0-liter V8 engine that sends power to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox. It'll hit 60 in about three seconds on its way to a top speed of somewhere around 186 miles per hour.
Judging from all the splitters, intakes and wings, we'd say the Bavarian team is more concerned with making the M3 DTM racer stick to the road like glue than hit ludicrous speed on the straights, and if nothing else, make the machine look awfully menacing to its rivals.
