Default New BMW Z4 Racer

No BMW Without Racing



There'd likely be no BMW without motorsports, asserted the German maker's CEO, Helmut Panke, during a Geneva preview, Monday night. The automaker used the event to display its latest entry into the demanding Formula One series, as well as this version of the Z4 M Coupe. The track-ready version will make a whopping 400 horsepower out of its 3.4-liter in-line six. Expect the automaker to produce only a few hundred, according to company officials, with some expected to go to the U.S. when production begins mid-year. Whatever series it participates in, Panke said it is critical for the automaker to dominate. "BMW could not be the dynamic, most performance-focused car company if we weren't involved in motorsports," he insisted. "Step-by-step, we would lose our identity."

I've been hearing American Le Mans Series, to fill the void between the E46 M3 and the next-gen M3. If I remember correctly, PTG is supposed to field one or two of their E46 M3s, then gradually phase into this new M Z4 Coupe through the season.
