Who knows alot about this car?

Is it basically an M5 engine in it? or is it an m3 engine that has been tuned?

I asked Jeeves but he wouldn't reply so well :(

well, it wouldnt be a modified 3 since its an inline 6 and not a V8

i think its a 444hp v8, most likely the same v8 used in m5's with some tuning

4.0L V8 specially designed for the GTR.

The racing authority at LeMans gave BMW heck b/c the 4.0 V8 wasn't homologated (sp?) meaning it doesn't exist in any production cars.
