DTM Car bears the serial number RS15-012 and is offered for sale by the German Mercedes-Benz specialist mechatronics
Each of us has one dream car. For some, the dream of a toy, a model kit, a video game or a photo in a magazine was sparked. For others, our choice of dream car was inspired by an impressive racetrack performance that made us a fan for life.
Touring car racing is more or less based on this principle. While the cars on the track are similar to the examples you can buy remotely in a showroom, they are purpose-built machines that use almost no stock parts. Still, a successful finish can inspire people to buy the street version of the winning car. As the old motorsport saying goes: “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday”.
For many Mercedes-Benz fans watching German Touring Car Masters (DTM) sparked the love affair with the brand. Mercedes-Benz was very successful in series production for many years. This success certainly gave Mercedes – especially AMG – a certain level of awareness among car enthusiasts.
