Sector3 Studios have released one final bit of Christmas cheer before breaking up for the festive holidays, revealing a few new teaser screenshots of the upcoming BMW M6 GT3 due to be added to the simulation during 2017. Due to the licencing agreements in place with the ADAC GT Championship and individual arrangements with BMW, Sector3 have secured a deal to bring in the latest GT3 machine produced by the Bavarian manufacturer. The car is powered by a powered by a 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology motor producing an incredible 585 hp – with the whole car weighing less than 1,300 kilograms. From the manufacturer themselves: "In 2016, the BMW M6 GT3 will replace the BMW Z4 GT3, which has been in action since 2010. The new car is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which has been modified for use in motor racing. The power train has dry sump lubrication and generates up to 585 hp – with the whole car weighing less than 1,300 kilograms. Further technical characteristics of the BMW M6 GT3 are the drive concept, six-speed sequential racing transmission, and high-performance motorsport electronics. The aerodynamic properties of the chassis have been optimised in the BMW wind tunnel. The engineers worked meticulously to fine-tune the BMW M6 Coupé, which formed the basis for the new car and was already perfectly suited to outings on the racetrack. Priority was given to ensuring maximum driver safety. To offer the drivers of the BMW M6 GT3 as much protection as possible against the effects of an accident, BMW Motorsport itself developed and produced the FIA-approved safety cell in accordance with the very latest safety standards. The engineers also placed great importance on efficiency and ease of maintenance, as well as reliability, which is particularly crucial at the 24-hour classics. The development of the BMW M6 GT3 incorporated all the experience that BMW Motorsport gained with the car’s successful predecessor, the BMW Z4 GT3. For example, the new GT3 racing car boasts many improvements, particularly when it comes to driveability and economy. The positioning of the driver’s seat towards the centre of the car and the long wheelbase make driving the BMW M6 GT3 a unique experience in the world of motor racing. The net price for the car is 379,000 Euros." Just in case you missed it above I'll quote something here "The net price for the car is 379,000 Euros."
