Z4 GT3!

http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=332955

BMW has quietly introduced the new Z4 GT3.

Created by BMW's Motorsport division, the Z4 GT3 was built to compete in events such as the FIA GT3 European Championship, the International GT Open, and the ADAC GT Masters.

Power comes from a modified version of the M3's 4.0-liter V8 engine, equipped with a 408 ECU and a Power400 control unit. Thanks to these electronic tweaks, the V8 produces approximately 480 bhp.

Other performance goodies include a six-speed sequential transmission, racing anti-lock brakes (ABS), and "rims with locking and safety clips."

Set to go on sale in the second quarter of 2010, the Z4 GT3 has an estimated price of €298,000 ($427,000 USD).

I'm sure this goes along with a completely unrestricted intake/exhaust system and maybe some different internals.
