I care. The E46 GTR is an awesome piece of machinery so I suspect this won't fail to deliver.
will you buy one ?
no, you'll just admire it from afar like the rest of us petrolheads. The only people who will really care about how good it drives will be the racing drivers who drive the racing versions.
The road going versions ? they'll all end up in warehouses and garages.
I could try the Robbie G tactic of repeating myself 100 times in a thread in order to not only convince others that I'm right but myself as well.
I won't buy one, I'll have two please! One in that smashing orangey colour and another in pink.
I only care beacuse BMW aren't generally in the buisness of making cars like this available to the public if they're not going to to be up to the job, even if it is only for homolgation.
Looking forward to a benchmark ring time for this.
that's a very good point
in an era where people like Toyota are abandonning making drivers cars because they are too expensive, it can only be a good thing that BMW sticks 2 fingers up to the global recession and comes out with cars like these and still wants to go racing.
Cept both BMW & Toyota have pulled out of F1 and Toyota are remaking the supra iirc.
not been long in comming no ?
Toyota are not abandonning making drivers cars due to cost, it's about emissions and meeting targets.
He is a VAG driver now, if they do a ring run with it it will either be Farfus or Mueller that does it.
yet BMW stick two fingers up and produce a car like this ?
And Toyota made the LF-A, what is your point?
Looks like it, but Toyota are trying to lead the way in the emissions area, from what I was told when I was at Burnaston they want to not only meet the target emissions in Europe but exceed these levels as well. This is why I would be very surprised if the Supra makes an offical release over on these shores.
Technically they didn't.
True, but I can see more potential benefit to ///M fans from BMW focussing on ALMS, WTCC etc. rather than F1.
Videos now posted. I like. looks absolutely awesome. What I would give for a drive.
Love the videos on Pistonheads. Don't know why people are comparing it to a GTR. This is raw, purist and awesome, the other is captain-safety by comparison.
As is normally the case you are the only person to properly mention the Nissan GT-R in this thread.
That 2nd video is great but for once, all I want is a HQ 10 second You Tube clip of someone just flooring it. I hate the way they tease you with muted clips of the induction noise but you never really hear it.
I'm off to buy a lottery ticket.
Really lets it down.
I agree, but if the race regs mean that the spoiler on the race cars has to be same as the one that's homologated then they have no choice.
For that money I'd rather have a Ferrari.
