GALLERY: Scaleauto BMW Z4 GT3

Scaleauto BMW Z4 GT3
SC-6018 - Team Englster, 24h Dubai 2011

I recently had the opportunity to add a Scaleauto BMW Z4 (at a good price I might add) to my line-up of Scaleauto slot cars.  I had always liked the look of the Z4, even as a street car it has a unique 'classic' shape and quality about it.  Scaleauto's offering is equally stunning in appearance and very impressive on the track.  Scaleauto have also just released the new 'Studie AGs' Super GT Z4 (SC-6028) with Japanese Magna-type themed livery which looks awesome - this Z4 exercise might get expensive!

From Wikipedia: 'An FIA GT3-specification car available to private teams.[11] While the production version of the BMW Z4 has a six-cylinder engine, the GT3 car is powered by a 4.4-litre eight-cylinder engine derived from the BMW M3 GTS, which produces approx. 515 PS (379 kW; 508 bhp).

The weight of the BMW Z4 GT3 is approx. 1,190 kilograms (2,624 lb). In its first year of racing, the car proved competitive in the FIA GT3 European Championship as well as not only emerging victorious from the Dubai 24 Hour endurance event, but also heading to second place from a low 49th position at the 2011 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps event by the Need For Speed Team Schubert.

Nobuteru Taniguchi and Taku Bamba were the champions of the GT300 class in the 2011 Super GT season.
