BMW Motorsport continued its development work on the new BMW M6 GT3 with an extensive programme of testing in Monteblanco (ES) and Portimão (PT).
Experienced BMW works drivers completed many valuable test kilometres at the wheel of the new challenger for the GT and endurance racing scene and were involved in important groundwork on the set-up of the BMW M6 GT3.
BMW M6 Coupé.
Frank van Meel, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW M GmbH, said: “We obviously knew that the production version, the BMW M6 Coupé, sets the bar extremely high when it comes to sportiness.
It is very impressive to see how our colleagues at BMW Motorsport are
able to take this excellent product as a basis, on which to develop a
GT3 racing car. The high-rev V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology
from the production M6, in particular, provides an ideal basis for a GT
power train, and is virtually unmodified. I am confident that the BMW
M6 GT3 will allow us to continue the successful tradition of BMW M and
BMW Motorsport at the racetrack from 2016.”
