According to BMW it was a huge challenge to develop this Z4 as it had to have what is needed to race successfully on the world's most demanding and spectacular racetrack, the Nürburgring's famous Nordschleife.
Racing genes for Z4 coupe
The new motorsport coupé can be used by private BMW customer teams in the German Endurance Championship and in the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race.
The power unit of the beefy coupe is a BMW Motorsport designed 3.2-litre in-line 6-cylinder engine delivering about 295 kW, with the suspension area in particular benefiting from the knowledge gained from the successful BMW M3 GTR project.
