The engine block of the car’s V8 is produced by the BMW Foundry in Landshut. BMW Plant Dingolfing contributes the rear-axle transmission, among other things. The front and rear aprons, bonnet, roof, mudguards, rear wing, and many other parts are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic.
The steel chassis of the BMW Z4 GT3, into which a safety cell made of high-tensile precision steel tubes is welded, is manufactured by BMW Plant Regensburg. As such, the racing car’s chassis comes off the same production line as that of the road version of the BMW Z4. Only at the end of the production process does the racing chassis veer away from the standard production one, in order to be finished by hand. In total, it takes about 700 man hours to completely assemble a BMW Z4 GT3.
2013 was a successful year for the BMW Z4 GT3, which won numerous races in GT series around the world. It also claimed its first podium at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, where it finished runner-up. The 2014 season has been even more successful. Amongst others the car won the title in the British GT Championship.
