For a number of years now, BMW has been employing the services of its Z4 in GT racing. The Z4 GT3 in particular has performed quite well, helping to retain a link to the automaker's claims that it builds the ultimate driving machines. Now though, it seems that the Z4 will have to step aside. That's because BMW will begin campaigning a new M6 GT3 race car, which should be quite an on-track looker based on these early renderings.
Testing with the new car will begin early in 2015. Customers looking to jump to the newest metal will be allowed to purchase the car later that year, and the order forms will be open throughout the year. This means the car should be ready to rock for the 2016 motorsport season.

There's no word yet on how much it will cost to own this Bavarian beast. Expect to pay at least half a million bucks though, as the Z4 GT3 runs right around $440,000.
