Schumacher release first official images of Mi3

Schumacher Mi3

After many spy shots of the new 190mm touring car from Schumacher and much talk about it, the British company has finally released official images of the new Mi3. Schumacher appear to have taken their re entry into the top of the competition scene very seriously and alongside employing some big name drivers have made a very nice car which will be in the shops at the end of March.

The Schumacher Mi3 is the first next generation touring car. It will set new standards for 4WD electric touring car design. Featuring a host of design innovations and a unique ultra modern look the Mi3 will be the car to beat at race tracks around the world and the benchmark all new touring cars will be compared to.
