The BMW Z4 GT3’s success on the track illustrates the outstanding mechanics behind a vehicle of its stature. The only problem is, many of us won’t be able to get behind the wheel of the GT3 due to its racing nature. Or at least we thought.

Simraceway is a company that offers FREE, real simulated racing with online competitions, using officially-licensed, exact replicas of existing vehicles. These models are built around a customized version of the isiMotor 2.5 physics engine, but the best part is the price. Each model costs only 1/100,000th of the real vehicle’s price. That means that the previously mentioned Z4 GT3 costs $4.02 - an insignificant amount considering the real car price of more than $400,000. Throw in another $11.95 and you’ll get any add-on car in the iRacing world.

There are over 600 cars to test (many of which have not been released yet) and all of them have been tested with the help of professional race drivers, world-champion sim racers, and the chief instructor of Simraceway Performance Driving Center. Everything from the car’s paint to the engine’s sound will make you think you are behind the wheel of the real thing. We know it isn’t exactly the same thing, but it’s the closest we’re ever going to get to the real thing!

This is absolutely a WOW for a BMW vehicle! It is really oozing with angst, and it looks better now with its modification. I just only hope that they already use a boost engine for this race car.
