2013 BMW M3 DTM driven

This new episode of DRIVE sees Chris Harris receive an invitation to drive BMW’s M3 DTM racecar.

While Bruno Spengler, BMW Team Schnitzer and BMW secured the drivers’, teams’ and manufacturers’ titles on the company’s return to the series last year, Audi’s Mike Rockenfeller took the crown in 2013, with Audi Sport Team Phoenix topping the team standings, but BMW retained its manufacturers’ accolade.

All cars are based on a state-of-the-art carbon-fibre monocoque, which features a high-strength steel tube cage, while the naturally aspirated 4.0-litre V8 engines are capable of producing 373 kW (500 hp), but the mandatory air restrictor brings that figure down to 350 kW (470 hp). Gears are changed by a pneumatically operated six-speed transmission via steering wheel-mounted flappy paddles.
