2012 Mercedes-Benz DTM AMG C-Coupe is ready for a new racing season

The new DTM AMG Mercedes-Benz C-Coupé made its debut for the 2012 DTM season at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The unveiling was undertaken by Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, along with Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management at Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Division, and Norbert Haug, Vice-President, Mercedes-Benz Motorsport. Mercedes-Benz based this model on the C-Class Coupé that had its global launch in 2011.

Mercedes-Benz had chosen this car to be the first DTM car to make use of a new and improved safety concept, which was the product of the partnership between the ITR e.V, the DMSB (Germany's motor racing governing body) and the DTM manufacturers.

This new car takes a highly advanced carbon fibre monocoque and uses it together with a roll cage built from high-strength steel. In addition, each car gets six energy-absorbing crash structures, raising the protection to the front, rear and sides.
