Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed another powerful addition for Project CARS 2. Say hello to the BMW M6 GT3, a track-oriented machine specifically developed for the FIA GT3 class regulations.
The M6 GT3 follows in the footsteps of the Z4 GT3 that BMW’s racing division successfully used in preceding years. The hulking M6 GT3 uses the same S63 V8 unit powering the civilian model, further enhanced for the purpose of competing on-track. The engine is estimated to produce close to 600 hp through a 6-speed sequential transmission.
Team ROWE Racing demonstrated the car’s true potential by triumphing at the 2016 Spa 24 Hours event. Perhaps another more familiar M6 GT3 took part in last year’s 24 hour endurance event at Green Hell. Team Walkenhorst Motorsport — hosting Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi — finished the race 18th in the SP9 class and 22nd overall. The car was subsequently added to GT Sport.
