E89Z4GT3 11 First photos of the BMW E89 Z4 GT3

Just two months ago, BMW Motorsport softly announced a new model due out in the second quarter of 2010: BMW Z4 GT3. Based on the current generation E89, the Z4 GT3 is powered by the 4.0 liter V8 engine found in the current M3 producing approximately 480 bhp. 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 BMW Z4 GT3 has an estimated price of 298,000 euros ($427,000 at the current rate exchange).

The first team to show their E89 Z4 GT3 is Schubert Motorsport backed and the car was spotted during a training session in Paul Ricard High Test Track in France.

Courtesy of Jon Sibal, we have some exclusive photos today, but expect to see more higher resolution photos in the next few days.

    Man, this caused instant drooling! Hopefully BMW will release a non racing version, call it the Z4M. I will remortgage my house…

    Horatiu, you’ve known about this car since 7/12/09 and just now reporting on it? Hmmmm… This is far more exciting news than the GT4, since this means the V8 can be made to fit in the Z4 engine bay. Z4M soon to follow!
