    Despite being incredibly busy outlining new technologies, innovations and models at this year's Frankfurt motor show, BMW's designers have still found time to put together the BMW M3 "Münchner Wirte," a special model to mark the start of Munich's world-famous beer festival, which gets underway on Saturday.

    Inspired by BMW's ties to both Munich and motorsport, the special car's hand-painted external finish incorporates visual elements including Munich's Olympic Stadium, BMW's headquarters and the Wiesn-Schänke beer tent at the Oktoberfest event itself.

    The flowing blue-on-white mural is the work of Walter Maurer who, over three decades ago, was the creative mind behind the livery on the BMW M1 Procar racer that competed at a number of high-profile competitions including Le Mans. "Although the two cars are very different, it was surprisingly straightforward to carry over the design from the two-door BMW M1 racer to the four-door BMW M3 Sedan," said Maurer.
