If you have ever been to the BMW Zentrum at the BMW Manufacturing plant in Greenville, SC you would probably recognize this DTM E30 M3 as the one on the elevated display. The BMW Zentrum is under renovation so we were finally able to bring this little gem down from its perch where is has sat for 15 years.

The car is a 1991, 2.5 liter E30 M3 raced in DTM by Steve Soper. The car is complete and is one of the most developed versions of the DTM M3 but would need extensive servicing before it could be operational again. It was photographed in the lobby of BMW of North America before going to the Rahal shops for some cosmetic restoration. It will be on display again this August at the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion and the Legends of the Autobahn Concours during Monterey car Week.
