Bmw Z4 Gt3
- Bmw Cars
While the production version of the BMW Z4 has a six-cylinder engine, the GT3 car is powered by a 4.4-litre eight-cylinder engine derived from the BMW M3 GTS, which produces approx. 515 PS (379 kW; 508 bhp). The weight of the BMW Z4 GT3 is approx. 1,190 kilograms (2,624 lb). In its first year of racing, the car proved competitive in the FIA GT3 European Championship as well as not only emerging victorious from the Dubai 24 Hour endurance event, but also heading to second place from a low 49th position at the 2011 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps event by the Need For Speed Team Schubert.
The BMW Z4 GT3 replaces the BMW M3 which served as the platform for BMW Motorsport’s considerable success in the FIA GT European Championship and the American Le Mans Series. Although it is based on the popular BMW Z4 roadster, the Z4 GT3 is equipped with a 4.4 liter, aluminum block V8 rather than the inline 6 found in the road-going version. The Z4 GT3 boasts a sophisticated aerodynamic package including a front splitter, front fender winglets, rear diffuser and double deck rear wing constructed of carbon fiber reinforced plastic while beneath the bodywork the chassis features spring struts in low friction bearings, tubular stabilizer with adjusting blades (front), trailing link suspension (rear) and adjustable tubular stabilizer.

Very nice setup, with a few tweaks I ran a 1:57.5xx at Dubai Autodrome GP during a race which would have been in the 80s on the time trial GT leaderboard at the time. It definitely has more in it too. edit: Upped the final drive to 3.91 and ran a clean 1.57:579 which puts me in the 90s atm, 56's are possible but I can't see them getting much faster than that without cutting corners, also added a bit of front downforce.

Team Russia by Barwell crew entered their BMW Z4 GT3 in the second round of the European Le Mans Series at Imola, Italy in May 2014 after finishing a very impressive fourth position at the opening round at Silverstone in April. Due to the excess weight of the car, the three-driver team had to manage high brake wear and reduce their pace accordingly during the final stints but guided the BMW Z4 to a very respectable P9 in class at the chequered flag.

Das Serienmodell BMW Z4 lieferte den BMW Motorsport Ingenieuren eine gute Basis, um daraus einen seriennahen GT3-Rennwagen abzuleiten. Der größte Unterschied verbirgt sich im Inneren: In der Motorsportversion sorgt ein 4,4 Liter Achtzylinder-Aggregat für den nötigen Vortrieb. Dieses kraftvolle Herz leistet über 500 PS. Der Basismotor ist aufgrund seiner exzellenten Leistungscharakteristik und des guten Drehmomentverlaufs für den Einsatz im Motorsport geradezu prädestiniert.
In addition to the model shown, we offer bespoke Tailor-Made versions to any vehicle specification.

Please view the Tailor-Made section of the website for further details. Please note that all Tailor-Made additions are hand-built to order and subject to a longer lead time.
You are correct & strictly speaking even the Z4 GT3 meets the homologation requirements. But what was meant is that nobody can walk into a BMW dealership and order a Z4 with an S65 engine for road use. BMW, in this case, used a loophole in the rules that allowed them to homologate the base 4.4L S65B44 engine from the M3 GTS using the base chassis of the E89 and put them together. Other manufacturers "played fairly" by comparison (i.e., you can buy an 911 GT3, an SLS with a 6.2L engine, etc.) But with the M6 GT3, one can at least buy the non-race version with the S63 4.4L V8 TT.
($TBA) would qualify as one of those cars. This Swedish-built supercar sports the same 4.7-liter V8 as the company's prior CCX, but ups the ante with 910 hp, good for a 0-62 time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of over 242 mph. As if that weren't enough to entice you to spend your virtual dollars, the Agera also sports LED headlamps, new front and rear fascias, and a carbon fiber and aluminum chassis that helps bring the beast's weight down below 2,900 lbs. Oh, and having lottery-winning money isn't the only requirement for ownership: only 16-20 will be built each year, meaning that you'll have to win the lottery all over again in order to get your hands on one.
Belgium’s BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS won this past weekend’s 24 Hours of Spa, the highlight of the Blancpain Endurance Series aimed at private teams. The team’s number 46 BMW Z4 GT3 race car driven by Nick Catsburg, Lucas Luhr and Markus Palttala was the first to cross the finish line, and over the space of 24 hours managed to lap the beautiful Spa Francorchamps race track 536 times. Victory was a fitting farewell for the Z4 GT3, which next season will be replaced by a
After the BMW Z4 GT3 crowned its final major appearance at the Total 24 Hours of Spa with victory for BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS, the anticipation among BMW Motorsport and its customer teams is now rising ahead of the arrival of the BMW M6 GT3. The new car will take over as the manufacturer's figurehead on the GT racing scene, and will do battle for victory and titles in many racing series around the world. The car features thoroughbred racing technology: the BMW M6 GT3 has incorporated many findings from BMW Motorsport's works projects - while at the same time ensuring reasonable costs for customers.

The full function remote control lets you move forwards and backwards and steer left and right, allowing you to drive the car as BMW intended. The car requires three AA batteries, with the controller running off two AA batteries. Both the car and remote can run off alkaline or rechargeable batteries.
According to BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen, "The feedback on the BMW Z4 GT3 is extremely positive. This sports car rounds off our product range, and offers drivers and teams the opportunity to compete in championships in accordance with the GT3 regulations - such as the FIA GT3 European Championship, the International GT Open or the ADAC GT Masters - as well as at 24-hour endurance races."
—but the GTE has a bigger heart; the 4.4-liter V-8 inherited from the Z4 GT3, but throttled with a pair of 1.2-inch air restrictors to limit output to 485–490 horsepower. Maximum torque is around 370 lb-ft. Technical Director for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, Jay O’Connell, who’s been everywhere from CART to Formula 1 to the Ford GT, explains the ALMS Z4s, Have the GT3 front and rear suspension, the GT3 engine, and we basically had to update the aerodynamics to be GTE compliant, which means no rear diffuser with vertical strakes and no front dive planes on the outside of the facia. We were able to widen the cars because the rules in GTE allow for wider cars so it has new fenders that are wider but with less visible aerodynamics devices on the outside.
For a start, many of the Z4 GT3's components have been manufactured using ultra-lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastics, which has contributed to a total weight of not much over a ton. Underneath its elongated hood, meanwhile, there lies an M3-derived 4.4-liter V8 engine which can crank out a whopping 515 bhp, and a sequential six-speed gearbox that channels all that power to the rear wheels.
One of the two drivers for the Z4 has already been decided: Czech national Jakub Knoll (24), who finished as champion in last year’s FIA Central European Zone (CEZ) driving a Mercedes-Benz, will be leading the charge. Preparations are well underway for the debut season of the BMW team in the ADAC GT Masters. The ADAC GT Masters is a highly competitive series and a challenge for any team, adds Senkyr. We want to be optimally prepared for the first race at Oschersleben. We certainly don’t expect to finish in the Top Five on our first outing, but we want to have everything in place for the first race so everything runs smoothly.

The BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS ran a similar race in 2013 when it also finished second with the BMW Z4 GT3. The team’s second car was extremely fast and also ran a good race just missing a podium finish coming in fourth place this year. Dirk Adorf, Augusto Farfus, Nick Catsburg and Jorg Muller were at the wheel of the number 26 BMW Z4 car. Catsburg clocked the fastest lap of the entire race on lap 120, with a time of 8:18.690 minutes.

Just like the M3 GT, the new car carries a V-8 engine, a 4.4-liter example with a stock block from the BMW foundry at Landshut. The engine makes about 475 hp, revs all the way to 9000 rpm, and runs on E85 gasoline. As the Z4 GTE goes past us, the note from the V-8 also sounds very different than that of the M3 GT. In fact, this BMW sounds like a NASCAR stock car, and NASCAR president Mike Helton smiles approvingly from pitlane where he has come to watch the ceremonies.
