BMW Shows off New Z4 GTE Racecar

New car replaces the M3 GT

For a number of years BMW has used its M3 GT as its car for the American Le Mans Series of endurance races. The automaker recently announced that it would be retiring that M3 GT from ALMS competition in favor of the new and smaller BMW Z4 GTE. BMW is withholding a lot of the performance specifications for this racecar, which is to be expected in a series where competitive advantages are protected at all costs.

BMW plans to field this car in races during 2013. Work on the car began in July 2012 with engineers in Munich working on the development of the GTE version of the BMW Z4 GT3 car. The GTE version of the vehicle was modified in all dimensions to comply with ACO regulations.

The GTE car also lacks the ABS and DSC that are allowed in the GT3 class. BMW says that its factory race teams were involved in the development of the vehicle through the whole process. Fans of BMW racecars will be able to see the car in action during the 2013 racing season at Sebring and Road Atlanta.

In fact, the XE only makes a brief appearance in the video, being shown as it is transported by helicopter during the final seconds. The vehicle is too far away in the ...
