There’s a new GT3 car set to hit the tracks next year with the presentation of this newly developed M6 by BMW.

The racing version of the BMW M6 Coupe will be sent into action by numerous private teams from the 2016 season in a host of championships and renowned race events around the world.

Priced at $601,000 AUD, the 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 replaces the aged Z4 GT3. Aspects from the BMW Z4 GT3 have been further developed into the new M6 with a raft of improvements implemented throughout.

The BMW M6 GT3 weighs less than 1,300 kilograms, and the transaxle drive concept, sequential six-speed racing gearbox and body aerodynamics optimised in the BMW wind tunnel also highlight the imminent arrival of a full-blooded racer from BMW Motorsport in 2016.

The BMW M6 GT3 has undergone an extensive programme of testing on a variety of circuits over the course of 2015 and will make its racing debut in the coming year.
