The BMW Z4 GT3 is preparing for the 2012 season and BMW has promised that the model will be stronger than ever. Before the season starts, Dirk Adorf took the car for a test session at the Valencia’s "Circuit de la Comunitat" to see if this was the case and he was deeply impressed.
For the BMW Z4 GT3, the six-cylinder engine has been replaced with a 4.4-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox. The model has also received an elongated bonnet, a long wheelbase, and the narrow wheel arches. Also, the car has received a steel body for better protection at high speeds, plus a safety cell made of sturdy steel tubing that’s welded into the body. BMW is also offering lots of carbon fiber reinforced plastics elements for the front and rear wings, the bonnet, roof and fenders.
