Schubert E89 Z4 GT3

Back in Dec. 2009, BMW Motorsport division annouced that they will be offering private race teams a BMW Z4 GT3. Although it won’t be a roadster like the typical E89, the new race car will be powered with the V8 engine found on E92 M3. To read BMW’s press release, click this LINK.

And it has begun. The first team to show their E89 Z4 GT3 is Schubert Motorsport backed by BMW Motorsport. Here they are doing their shakedown runs in Paul Ricard High Test Track in France.
Here are the Z4 GT3 stats:

As part of its customer racing programme, BMW Motorsport is offering private teams another attractive car from 2010: the BMW Z4 GT3. This sports car is an impressive addition to the BMW product range and offers drivers and teams the opportunity to compete in international and national championships in accordance with GT3 regulations – such as the FIA GT3 European Championship, International GT Open and the ADAC GT Masters – as well as in 24-hour endurance races.

The BMW Z4 GT3 is powered by a four-litre, eight-cylinder engine producing approximately 480 bhp. When it comes to electronics, the private teams can look forward to innovative BMW solutions, which have proven themselves in the BMW M3 GT2: the engine is controlled by the modern ECU 408, while the Power400 control unit is responsible for operating all actuators. The transmission takes place via a sequential, six-speed gearbox. The scope of delivery also includes rims with locking and safety clips, as well as racing ABS and optional air conditioning.


The BMW Z4 GT3 in its racing version is available from the second quarter of 2010 at an estimated price of 298,000 Euro (plus VAT). If interested, please send an email to Z4GT3@bmw-motorsport.com or send a fax to +49 89 382 208 55.

Stats:

Engine: 4 litre V8
Max. Power Output: 480 bhp
Gearbox: 6-speed, sequential

In the side shot it looks like a fixed roof. I would expect nothing less for a race setup. I imagine it's CF. I really miss my Mcoupe(Z4). If BMW seriously did a solid roof Z4 with the S65, I would keep that car till the day I die!

Unfortunately it is not a Coup but a non-opening Hardtop. Then the bumper style is of M-package, and not of M. So this means no Z4 Coup, so no Z4 M, so no S65 in Z4.

A fixed hardtop? That takes all the fun out of it

The real question is does it come with the premium sound package and iDrive...

Good find - it is hard to see a wing of this size outside of an airport.
