I'm not sure if D. Letterman's M3 praising is a compliment or an insult? Michael Schumaker praising an M3 that's a compliment while Larry the Cable Guy for example, not sure

Rahal Letterman racing, Google it... David Letterman is a big fan of racing and the Rahal Letterman team just won the American Le Mans Series championships with the M3.

Edit: 48Laws beat me to it...

Letterman has been a big racing guy for YEARS. I'm sure he has a bunch of these cars in a garage somewhere...

I remember years ago he got into trouble with the law for hauling ass to his gig in NY from his house in CT while driving a 3000GT.

Lol. No doubt. Paul Schaefer has been Letterman's sidekick for probably more than two decades!

Thanks to the OP for posting this, I had not seen this show.
