BMW released today initial details on the M6 GT3, a model that is going to debut in the racing series starting 2016. The German model is still wearing camouflage but we can see that it got a massive body kit.
We talk about new front and rear bumpers, a revised hood, side exhausts, a big rear wing and a revised suspension that lowers the ground clearance.
Power comes from a 4.4-liter V8 turbo engine delivering over 500 horses through a six-speed sequential gearbox. The model weighs only 1,300 kilograms, therefore, all that power will surely provide impressive performance figures.
“This is a big moment for everyone who has worked so intensely and passionately on the development of the BMW M6 GT3 in recent months,” says the company.
The improved total weight was possible by stripping down the interior. Inside, there’ll be the sport seat as well as a roll-cage and other minor equipment. BMW is currently testing the new M6 GT3 at their plant in Dingolfing with more details to be released in the coming months.
