A few months back BMW Motorsports announced that they’d be building a Z4 GT3 car with a fixed roof and a V8 engine. We all gasped and the questions started. Did this mean the return of the Z4 Coupe for the street as well? How fixed was the roof. What V8 are they using? We have a few answers (no the car will not be sold to the public, yes it’s using a version of the M3′s V8) but perhaps most importantly we can now say we’ve seen the car. The Schubert Motorsport team took delivery of one of the first Z4 GT3s from BMW and has hit the track in Germany this week to shake down the car.
The Schubert Z4 GT3 will make it’s debut at Silverstone on May 2rd. Of course the biggest race of the year for this team and these cars will be the 24 Hour of Nurburgring just a month later.
