BMW 480hp Z4 GT3 revealed



As part of its customer racing programme, BMW Motorsport is offering private teams another attractive car from 2010: the BMW Z4 GT3. This sports car is an impressive addition to the BMW product range and offers drivers and teams the opportunity to compete in international and national championships in accordance with GT3 regulations - such as the FIA GT3 European Championship, International GT Open and the ADAC GT Masters - as well as in 24-hour endurance races.

The BMW Z4 GT3 is powered by a four-litre, eight-cylinder engine producing approximately 480 bhp. When it comes to electronics, the private teams can look forward to innovative BMW solutions, which have proven themselves in the BMW M3 GT2: the engine is controlled by the modern ECU 408, while the Power400 control unit is responsible for operating all actuators. The transmission takes place via a sequential, six-speed gearbox. The scope of delivery also includes rims with locking and safety clips, as well as racing ABS and optional air conditioning.

The BMW Z4 GT3 in its racing version is available from the second quarter of 2010 at an estimated price of 298,000 Euro (plus VAT).

They should make an M version of this one instead of that X5 and X6 M foolishness. Don't get me wrong, I love the looks of those cars and I even drove an X6 M the other day and it's an awesome scary-fast monster beast! But let's face it, it's a pretty pointless idea...

I can see this new Z4 with a shiny M badge slapped on the back, some aggressive looking bumpers and big wheel arches
