Yesterday in Daytona, BMW unveiled the Z4 GTE race car which will compete in the 2013 American Le Mans Series. The new Z4 GTE is replacing the championship winning car M3 GT.
Car number 55 will be driven by Bill Auberlen (US) and ALMS rookie Maxime Martin (BE). Dirk Müller (DE) will contest all the races in the number 56 car. Joey Hand (US) and John Edwards (US) will alternate as the two-time ALMS GT champion’s driving partner. Edwards will stand in for Hand when he is unavailable due to his parallel commitment in the DTM. Jörg Müller (DE, #55) and Uwe Alzen (DE, #56) will bolster the squad at the endurance races at Sebring (US) and Road Atlanta (US).
Here is a first video showing us how the car sounds and rides on a race track.
