Sad to see BMW is building another bulldozer. The fastest GT cars around should also look fast I never was a really big fan of the Z4, but now am missing it.

I thought that as well, but it might be an illusion. The doors seem around the same size and the roofline of the new car drops dramatically.

Despite this, I find myself really not caring about fat BMWs for oil executives. I miss the Z4.

I miss the engine of the Z4 the most, that stockcar style growl was wonderful.

Also, we could compare the sizes between the two cars directly based on the license plate...that's the same size between the two.

Interesting, I wonder why they are testing at Estoril? Was that a dedicated test car, or one of the cars that has run the first 2 IMSA rounds?

Oh and seeing it get towed in by the Volvo was great!

Number 100 plate on the side and the IMSA stickers below it as well.

I would guess they are testing the M6 GTLM to try and assist Rahal Letterman with setups and such since they are far behind the other teams in IMSA currently.

The BMW 8 Series Test Mule in Nurburgring.
Looks more like a 6 series than an 8 series.

Will be a massive fail on BMW's part if they actually try and race that boat.

Why?!?!?

No one knows the car and I bet they will build a car to win Le Mans not WEC. For the long straights the M8 won´t be a bad choise IMHO

The reports are that the car will be extreme... so let´s wait and see !!!!!

The history shows that the long tails have been very competitive in Le Mans, if they can lower the height of the body will be a good car, very fast on the straight.
