#92 Team RLL BMW M3 GT

Want to stand out at the race track, like no other? What to be the envy of your fellow BMW drivers at the next BMWCCA meeting? Or, maybe you’re tired of “keeping up with the Joneses” and just need to leap frog them. “Hey, Joe, come over here and let me show you what I have in my garage”…..

Might I suggest a BMW M3 GT, in ALMS/ACO spec.

DOHC 32-valve, 4.0L V8 aluminum block and heads, port fuel injection. 470 bhp @ 8000 rpm, 365 lb-ft of torque @ 5500rpm. 0-60 mph, in 3.1 sec. 0-150 mph in 16.6 sec. 2830 pounds. 12″x18″ front wheels, 13″x18″ rear wheels. All clad in specially formulated Dunlop rubber.

After a 5 year hiatus, this is the car that BMW Motorsports, in a partnership with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, choose for their return to North American GT racing. And “yes”, it is THAT Letterman.

2010 found the team winning both the Team & Manufacturer Championships in the ALMS GT category.

This year, the Team and Driver Championships are locked up. With Petit Le Mans this weekend, Team RLL/BMW hopes to secure Tire and Manufacturer championships.

This is the Ultimate Driving Racing Machine (in GT2 specs)

As a side note, want to see the 2011 version of this car run? Tune into the final race of the 2011 American Le Mans Series, Petit Le Mans. 10 hours of some of the finest racing in this hemisphere. Live on ESPN3.com (or your Xbox 360 ESPN app) on 10/1, starting at 9:15 am MT, or the recap on ABC on 10/2 @ 2pm MT
