BMWMotorsport plans to unveil the M6 GT3 with a racing livery at the FrankfurtMotor Show in September.
Half a million dollars for this screaming race car might be a steal. The M6 GT3 packsa 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that can produce up to 577 hp—depending onclassification. The race car has a steel chassis that has a weldedFIA-approved safety cell and carbon fiber crash structures at the front andback.
