Video: BMW Z4 GT3 Runs The Nurburgring

Follow Nelson

Abandon all hope of productivity, ye who enter here. For the next 10 minutes and 51 seconds, anyway. You're about to be sucked into a dark cavern of gear whine, slow traffic, blaring exhaust and wet curves. It's the new BMW Z4 GT3's first lap of the Nurburgring.

From a camera set far back in the cabin, the video shows us the driver, Richard Goransson, wielding his weapon with a relatively relaxed demeanor, the car's twitchy behavior on the slick asphalt and the raw speed the Z4 GT3 uses to outpace just about everything else on course.

Powered by a 4.0-liter V-8 adapted from the M3 GT2 car, the Z4 GT3 rates at 480 horsepower, and with its six-speed sequential (and raucously loud) gearbox, full-race suspension and full-on aerodynamics kit, it's clearly a screamer. Too bad you'll have to go to Europe, or buy the 1,000-channel mega-dish package to see it in action.
