DTM fans, your time has come. Sector3 Studios has released the latest addition to the growing R3E car roster, the 1995 AMG-Mercedes C-Klasse racer. Based on the W202 chassis, the 1995 machine is a marked improvement over its predecessor.
The driver’s seat moved further back toward the center of the car, improving driver safety. Improving its stability was the integration of the roll cage into the body. Powered by the same 2.5-liter V6, the power leaped to 440hp — 40 more than the ’94 car. In the same year, DTM consisted of two series races. The main German Touring Car scene, and the newer International Touring Car Series.
All featured on the same calendar, DTM races held seven events while the ITCS held five. DTM races were exclusive to Germany, while ITCS events ventured out to Italy, Finland, the UK, Portugal and France. The FIA Class 1 Touring Cars contested both series’ with the same teams and drivers. The C-Klass dominated outright, with Bernd Schneider winning both drivers’ titles.
Now, players have the opportunity to drive the iconic machine for themselves. If you need any further convincing, watch (and listen) the video above. In the right hands the Class 1 machine will be as capable around the track as it was in 1995.
The C-Klasse is now available in the free-to-play racer for 399 Virtual Racing Points ($4.59). Those wanting all nine liveries can make the jump for an additional $2.97. Like all cars added to the game, you can give the DTM racer a whirl before buying it.
