Schumacher and Rosberg Uncovered the 2012 DTM Car

The show all of shows have begun, the Frankfurt Auto Show already started. And it was an event for Mercedes-Benz, which was started by Mercedes Petronas drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg as they unveiled the 2012 DTM C-Class Coupe.

Definitely a racing performance car, the coupe is a silver arrow by the way it looks. But what's really interesting about it is the power it produces, which is 500HP, brought about by the 4L V8 engine and the lightweight characteristics.

Obviously, this car is bringing in the pride for the three-pointed star brand. Here are words of elation from key people from Mercedes-Benz:

Michael Schumacher: "The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz DTM car looks fantastic. But what I find even more impressive than the car's visual appearance is the new safety concept with its innovative safety cell and more advanced carbon-fiber structures. This safety standard is exemplary and constitutes, in my opinion, the benchmark for touring-car racing."

Gary Paffett: "After getting a feel for the handling and performance of the DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupe around the Lausitzring, I can say I'm very pleased with it. Of course, we still have a lot of development work ahead of us before the 2012 season opener in Hockenheim. The driving experience is quite different to that of previous DTM cars. The new Hankook tires for 2012 are wider and have taller sidewalls, providing more mechanical grip."

Norbert Haug, VP Mercedes-Benz Motorsports :"The new-generation vehicle, based on our Mercedes-Benz C-Coupe, signals the introduction of an even more spectacular racing car from the start of 2012. I am certain that the spectators will get their money's worth from the three-way fight between Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz in the DTM next year."
