The Schumacher Mi3: The First Next Generation Touring Car

Once in a great while an innovation occurs that so completely improves upon what is available that it sparks a change from one way of thinking to another. It’s a revolution, a transformation, a metamorphosis where old ideas are left behind and a new way of thinking takes over.

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.
