THE BMW M6 GT3.

The top model for Customer Racing.

The BMW M6 GT3 has been a part of the portfolio of cars at BMW M Motorsport since 2016. The GT3 car won the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in its very first season. Two years later, the top model in the BMW Customer Racing range went one better: the BMW M6 GT3 scored a jaw-dropping one-two success at Spa-Francorchamps. The car is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The power train has dry sump lubrication and generates up to 585 hp – with the whole car weighing less than 1,300 kilograms. Other technical features are the transaxle drive concept, a sequential six-speed racing gearbox, and powerful motorsport electronics. The BMW M6 GT3 was given facelift in the form of an extensive Evo package for the 2018 season, in order to offer customers a car with improved handling and even greater reliability.

THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BMW M6 GT3.

BMW M6 GT3
BMW M6 GT3

ENGINE.

The powerful heart of the BMW M6 GT3 is based on the 4.4-litre production engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which is also used in the BMW M6 Coupé. Only the oil supply and intercooling have been modified.

BMW M6 GT3

BODY.

Efficient, aerodynamic, and with a maintenance-friendly design to make repairs easy: The exterior of the BMW M6 GT3 is made completely of carbon fibre and tailored solely for performance, whilst at the same time taking economy and safety into account. Crash structures at the front and rear of the car make it as safe as possible.

BMW M6 GT3

COCKPIT.

When designing the interior of the BMW M6 GT3, safety was given top priority, alongside ergonomics and the visibility and accessibility of controls. This is ensured, among other things, by a welded safety cage that complies with the latest FIA standards, as well as a rigidly-bolted BMW safety seat (ventilated and with adjustable height and length).

BMW M6 GT3

CHASSIS.

The BMW M6 GT3 has double wishbones on the front and rear axles, each with four-way adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers. The anti-roll bars can also be adjusted from outside.

BMW M6 GT3

BRAKES.

An AP Racing racing brake system is used, with a six-piston calliper at the front and four-piston calliper at the rear. The BMW M6 GT3 also has an adjustable BOSCH Motorsport ABS system. The Evo package that BMW M Motorsport has offered its customers since 2018, has optimised the brake system in view of the improved handling.
