      BMW Z4 GT3: 480 Horsepower, Race Ready, Yours for $400,000

      The Z4 GT3, with a 480-horse V-8, a plethora of carbon fiber, and a $400,000 price tag, rounds out BMW Motorsport's racecar stable, alongside the M3 GT2 and others. The GT3 moniker denotes that this Z4 complies with FIA class regulations, meaning the car can compete in the FIA GT3 European Championship, International GT Open, ADAC GT Masters, and numerous 24-hour races.

      BMW designed the Z4 GT3 around the M3-derived 4.0-liter V-8, using CATIA V5 design software to fit the engine first, then added the other components. The transmission is a six-speed, sequential affair with a "Quick Shift" function. The engineers then turned to the front axle, redesigning and equipping it with an adjustable tubular stabilizer bar. The rear axle is a longitudinal link axle, like the standard Z4.

      Carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics compose most of the body, including the front and rear spoilers, hood, roof, and fenders, dropping the weight of the Z4 to 2645 pounds. BMW tuned the aerodynamics with computational fluid dynamics and wind tunnel testing. Standard features include wheels with central locking and safety clip, and race-tuned ABS and traction control.

      480 horses, where is the road to drive those. By the time he accelerates the road would have finished. This can happen only on freeways without any vehicles passing I believe

      You were asking the original or the scaled ones. But even the scaled one will cost a bomb

      Functioning 1:1 means then either you have to be that company or on the production/testing dept. best option would be to take a TD.
