BMW has launched a bunch of its latest flagships and now the German based carmaker has decided to switch on to the racing division, by adding the BMW M6 GTR to its BMW booth at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The racer will be part of the BMW Motorsport division and will set off for the first time at the 24-hour race at Nurburgring, next year.
But until its first race in 2016, the BMW M6 GT3 is currently available for display in Frankfurt, the model coming as the official replacer of the BMW Z4 GT3, which was pulled over in 2010. As opposed the former Z4 GT3, this particular racer comes with the latest technological and performance improvements.
The BMW Z4 GT3 is the first BMW racer to use a centrally-positioned driver`s seats, thanks to the longer wheelbase. This mod allows ”a driving feeling unparalleled on the racing scene.” The model also weighs 1,300 kg, which adds up more performance and improved handling.
Spealing about performance, the BMW Z4 GT3 will make use of an M TwinPower Turbo engine, which will eventually equip a future series production model. Rumors state that the racer would produce around 585 horsepower and would come with a more fuel efficiency.
