Everyone, Behold the BMW M6 GT3!

by SpeedLux

For those who may have forgotten about it, the motorsport division of the luxury German automaker, BMW, released a teaser image in October last year. Now, it has become clear that the teaser was actually meant to preview the BMW M6 GT3 model. The German company has recently launched quite a few images that reveal the vehicle in question.

Yes, in the first revealing images of the vehicle, the BMW M6 GT3 is wrapped in very heavy camouflage. However, it is really not that hard at all to figure out that the vehicle will sport a much wider body when compared to its road-only counterpart. In addition to the wider body, the GT3 variant of the M6 will also be coming with a ventilated engine hood as well as a huge spoiler wing at its rear end. The car also has quite a few components that are not available on the road version. These components include a considerably lower ride height, side exhausts and also additional air vents visible on the rear quarter panels of the vehicle.

Just like the recent BMW 6-Series facelift models, the M6 GT3 is also going to feature LED headlamps. Nonetheless, as can easily be expected, the German company has actually stripped out the cabin of the vehicle so as to reduce as much weight as possible. The car now weighs in at less than 1,300 kg.

In terms of performance, the car will have to count on the 4.4L V8 engine under its hood. This engine is backed by dual turbochargers. BMW has also specifically tweaked the engine to best suit track use. Dry sump lubrication is also utilized. This engine sends the car a total power of 500 bhp at its peak performance. BMW is also determined to mate this engine to a race-spec 6-speed sequential transmission system. And, to further ensure and enhance the performance of the vehicle, BMW has optimized the aerodynamics of the vehicle in a wind tunnel.

BMW commenced test on the M6 GT3 last Saturday. The test took place at the company’s Dingolfing plant in Germany. The car will also make a debut in both the national and international racing series next year, including those highly demanding endurance races.
