2015 BMW Z4 GTLM officially unveiled

BMW officially revealed the Z4 GTLM, a model that is inspired by the 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL, at least in terms of exterior styling. The livery is easily recognizable but maybe more important is that this model celebrates 40 years since the first victory at Sebring for BMW Motorsport.

BMW unveiled the Z4 GTLM at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance alongside the winners of the 1975 race. We talk about Brian Redman, Sam Posey and Hans-Joachim Stuck, who found this a good opportunity to unite again.

The current BMW Team RLL driver, Bill Auberlen, was the first one to drive the car around the circuit. If that was not enough, a couple of BMW Z4 GTRLM models will race at the 12-hour race of Sebring, an event which starts on March 21st.
