Cool F80 M3 and F82 M4 Test Mules Display at BMW Museum

This new exhibit is on display in the lobby of the BMW Museum - featuring an e30 M3 race car and two actual F8x test mules. The M4 is in Austin Yellow and the M3 in black. Both cars were driven by engineers and BMW's factory DTM drivers on the Nürburgring / Nordschliefe. The M4's dashboard was signed by the DTM drivers; a nice touch for these special cars. Hopefully these "test mules" will avoid the crusher.

The M car display can be seen in the Museum's lobby until July 27th, 2014.

We've also posted a capture of the development/testing feature video being played at the display.

Enjoy.

What's the story behind the E30 M3? Is it also a test mule or just a random car?

The F80 M3 mule is a US market car. It was returned to Germany in November 2013

Well.. these cars are on display inside the lobby of the BMW Museum, not inside the Welt. The BMW Museum is closed on Mondays. So... I would drop by on Saturday or Sunday - if I were you!

I hadn't thought about the Museum being closed on Monday. Thanks for pointing it out I will have to re-arrange my plans...

The F80 M3 mule is a US market car. It was returned to Germany in November 2013
It was one of the 'Ring Taxi's. There also was a small sign saying how the e30 M3's debuted at the Frankfurt Autoshow(IAA) in 1985 and that production started in 1987. Some 17,184 e30 M3's were built in total.

I still like the rims on the f80 mule. In silver they would be great. Are those going to be offered?
