Taking front stage at the 2015 New York Auto Show is the new BMW Z4 GTLM “Sebring 75″ Edition. The race car pays homage to the IMSA 3.0 CSL that won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1975 in the hands of Brian Redman, Sam Posey and Hans Stuck.

The BMW Z4 GTLM had its first race at the 12 Hours of Sebring last month.

The Rahal-Letterman-Lanigan GTLM BMW Z4 racers feature a new livery which manages to honor the old car without taking away from its modern look.
