As enthusiasts, we all at some point wish our cars were instead their racing equivalents.BMW apparently understands this feeling, and produced this commercial spot depicting a woman driving her Z4 sDrive35is who slips into fantasy as she dreams that it’s actually a Z4 GT3 race car.
What Z4 driver wouldn’t wish their car was a GT3-class-compliant sports car instead? Ditching the road-going Z4’s twin-turbocharged 335-hp 3.0-liter I-6 in favor of an M3-derived 4.4-liter V-8 with 480 hp on tap, the Z4 GT3 is BMW’s offering against other customer race specials built to spec to compete in the FIA’s GT3 class. The Z4 GT3 weighs in at around 2624 pounds, or almost 1000 less than its road-going counterpart.
While we may not all be transported to Germany’s Salzburgring every time we flick our Z4’s paddle shifters, we can totally relate to imagining your car is a purpose-built racer.
