V12 BMW Z3 Prototype

Postby MadTaffy » Tue Aug 07, 2012 7:33 pm

BMW ///M has posted on their Facebook Page a V12 BMW Z3 Prototype, This one-off prototype like the V16 7 Series Goldfish, M8, E36 M3 Compact, E34 M5 Convertible and M3 Pickup will obviously never go into production,

Rumor has it the engine is the V12 engine 5.4 liter M73 which in such a small package is pretty dam impressive, power of that engine is 326 hp and 490 N-m, although good chance its been fettled with by the M division,

No info was released about the car on FB, other than a small comment: "We don't know why a V12 engine was built into a BMW Z3 years ago. But it still looks impressive, doesn't it?"

If any detailed info is released i'll update the topic accordingly, hopefully some performance specs 0-60 etc. and more about the engine and build would be nice.
