Project CARS – First BMW Z4 GT3 Previews
Slightly Mad Studios have released first previews of the BMW Z4 GT3, the first of ten BMWs to join Project CARS.
As announced last week, Project CARS will feature ten BMW road & race cars and the Z4 is the first in line to join the sim. To cut the waiting time until members can experience a first version of the car, a bunch of development shots have been released.
The Z4 GT3 is BMW’s top end customer race car designed to the FIA GT3 rules that are used in various series around the world, including the iconic Nürburgring 24 Hours race. Weighing 1190 kilograms. the Z4 GT3 is powered by a BMW 4.4 liter V8 engine providing 515hp of power that is transmitted using a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shifters.
Next stop for the Z4 is next weekend’s Total 24 Hours race at Spa Franchorchamps where several BMW customer teams will be gunning for the overall race win, facing over 70 competitors.
