    I still can't find anyone at BMW to provide information on the Z4 coupe Motorsport kit. Would anyone have an e-mail address, contact name or phone number at either BMW Motorsport or BMW who can provide additional sales information.

    I hope to have some news for you lads about this

    ca soon. Lips zipped for now...

    Where is the link?

    The S54 has an iron-block which adds weight when compared to an aluminum block.

    BMW's M5 Product Information Guide says that the 5.0 liter V-10 weighs 240 kg/529 lbs.

    I think the M6 would be too heavy to race

    Yeah, but that engine is very special.

    It is purpose built for racing and nothing else. The M3 S54 engine is a street engine. You could probably take 30 pounds off with just removing the AC components.

    Just 326 pounds?

    Dyson's new AER V-8 (twin-turbo) engines that power both of its new Lolas weigh just 250 pounds.

    Not sure, but the S54 Weighs 326lbs

    .com/engine_faq/][Oops!] Engine data

    146Kg or 326lbs. I would bet the one going into the Z4 M R is going to weigh a bit less than that though.

    Man, I hope so. That is a sweet looking car.

    Re: BMW Unveils Z4 M Coupe Racing Kit

    I bet PTG would race it as the E90 M3 won't go into production for awhile.

    Thanks for the great pics. Rumors that PTG will run at least one of these in ALMS later in the year...hope they're true!

    Will PTG race this in ALMS in 2007?
