The New 2010 BMW Z4 GT3 racer unveiled has unveiled the race bred version of its BMW Z4 Roadster, meant to arrive in the hands of private teams which will employ them in various motorsport competitions around the globe. BMW Z4 GT3 racer replaces the standard 6-cylinder engine for a 4.0-litre V8 engine with a lot more grunt, like the one found in the BMW M3 GT2 racer. 357kW or so available to the driver is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed sequential gearbox with a “Quick Shift” function. the beefed up power plant is a raft of mechanical upgrades counting a roll cage, aggressive front and rear spoilers, and several panels finished in light weight carbon fibre reinforced plastics.

This has helped to shed the overall weight of the car to just 1,200kg, though this hasn’t helped the price which stands at over $400,000.
