Spyshots: BMW M6 GT3 Spotted While Testing on a Semi-Wet Nurburgring Track

BMW are not allowing their M6 GT3 racecars to skip a single practice session, which means test mules are working hard before engineers can put the OK stamp on their "medical" record.

Our spy photographers sent in a batch of photos showing the M6 GT3 during the usual set of pre-production tests, this time on the well-known and also feared Nürburgring asphalt, doing a few laps on the Nordschleife.

Testing the M6 GT3 on a circuit is perfectly normal because this is where the go-fast Bavarian will compete once engineers will provide a good-to-go race car. But it seems BMW swapped Belgium for Germany after the M6 GT3 was caught on camera at the Spa-Francorchamps 24-Hour Race.

Lucky us, our team of carparazzi were on the prowl and managed to provide some spyshots of the race car while it faced the circuit's demanding configuration.

The conditions were very far away from good because the track was half wet and half dry, but this is what the Nürburgring is offering most of the times. Looking at the pictures, we incline to think the test mule is wearing a different camouflage pattern compared to what we saw in Spa.

As we previously reported, the new hardcore racer built by BMW's M division will be replacing the Z4 in all events the Bavarian are competing in.

Power will ooze from under that long hood courtesy of the same 4.4-liter V8 from the road-going model, but tuned-up to comply with FIA standards. As a result, the M6 GT3 will see its power being downplayed to about 500 horsepower, but before you say anything, keep in mind we're talking about a car that tips the scales at a little over one ton, so fast is definitely on the menu.

In other BMW M6 GT3-related news, BMW confirmed that their new track-monster will wear a price tag of 379,000 euros (that's around $419,375 at current exchange rates).
