The DTM or Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (German Touring Car Championship) was contested by European manufacturers such as Volvo, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz. BMW won the DTM on two occasions with their E30 M3 model, with Eric van de Poele taking the 1987 crown for the Zakspeed Team, and Roberto Ravaglia winning it all in 1989 for Schnitzer in an M3 Evo. The Schnitzer team was sponsored by the German beer company Warsteiner, and Schnitzer DTM M3 examples during this period prominently featured the brewer's gold-circle logo.

This particular example is a tribute to the Schnitzer-run E30. It began life as a body-in-white chassis and believed to have been acquired by a doctor in Italy with the intention of entering hill-climb events. The suspension was modified with front magnesium center-lug uprights and rear Motorsport trailing arms. Weight was reduced with the installation of lightweight glass, a fuel cell, and fiberglass doors, trunk, and a removable racing hood. Air jacks and a roll cage were installed, and the exterior shell received an adjustable rear wing and a split front spoiler from the M3 Evo.

The Italian owner sold the BMW to an American doctor living in Europe, and he in turn sold the car to Rob Ferrero, a Golden Gate BMWCCA member and driving school instructor. Ferraro had the M3 imported to the United States and it was sold to Gil Cervantes, and he entered the car in club racing events for several years. The next owner was Henry Schmitt who commissioned Terry Tinney to rebuild the 2.5-liter racing engine while entrusting vintage technician Donald Duncan to convert the lubrication system to a dry sump.
