So, what was the sedan under the cloth then? It wasn't this E90 LTW since both were seen in the same picture AFAIK. And the M5 was not revealed at the event.

Don't expect it in the U.S. Thanks to our DOT, car would be 75 lbs. heavier than ROW version (airbags in seats, bumpers, etc.). Kinda defeats the purpose.

Thank your government for adding weight and cost to your vehicle while decreasing fuel mileage (all with de minimis safety impact).

This looks non-metallic to me. So a new, not yet existing color.

i want to remind some people here that when BMW was racing in the IMSA back in the 90s', they switched from the 2doors E36 M3 to the 4 doors E36 M3. Can anyone guess why? maybe because it was aerodynamically correct?
Stop bashing on the E90; gets old.

I agree, the hue does look similar to IB, but still not 100% convinced that it is. I guess time will tell.

Think about it. What car is BMW taking to the DTM series? Not the E92. Plus, they have to do something to increase plundering sales of the E90 M3 considering the DTM car will represent it.

Doubt it would sell outside Europe/Asia/Middle East.

Love it! about time! No mention of weight though that's somewhat worrisome. Are we talking about a big weight reduction with exotic materials or just an A/C and back seat delete and a 100 lbs. weight savings?

Dr. Segler did mention a concept vehicle coming this year that would employ the use of an exotic material. He suggested it wouldn't be cost effective but more-so a display of their capabilities.

From the official DTM website (announcing the 2 teams which will compete in XDTM in 2012--both should race much the same M3 GT cars):

"BMW Team Schnitzer will run two BMW M3 GT cars for BMW Motorsport at the major endurance races in Europe and Asia. BMW Team RBM is involved in BMW customer racing projects, including the development of the BMW 320 TC and the further development of the BMW Z4 GT3."

Nice, but I will wait for official specs. I don't see anything truly lightweight yet.
