    • Ever wonder what an E89 Z4M would have sounded like? Well, something like this

      BMW never built an E89 Z4M despite racing one which makes them hypocrites and BimmerBoost will never, ever, let anyone forget this. Why is BimmerBoost so bitter? For one, it showed BMW does not only build one thing as they claim and also that M began its downward spiral away from true Motorsport derived vehicles.


      If you think this is a bit of an overreaction watch the video below and then say an E89 Z4M would not have been sweet. The car uses a 4.4 liter version of the S65 V8 for racing called the P65B44.

      If BimmerBoost had its way, BMW M would have stuck the S85 V10 under the hood and made a German Viper. Unfortunately, BimmerBoost is not in charge of BMW M. Yet.

        As cool as it looks and as well as I am sure it handles and brakes...it honestly looks slow exiting the corners. Throw a supercharger or some turbos on it and I am sure it would be beast.

        My biggest question is, why doesn't BMW offer this. You know, you have the 911, then the GT3 RS. BMW has the Z4 and then that's it. A wide bodied v8 monster with crazy aero options would be eaten up.

        Yes, I am serious. The thing brakes crazy late, carries tons of speed through the corners, but looks like a turd during acceleration out of the corner.

        Remind me how many ALMS races you watched? Because, uh, I think whomever is driving this is not exactly BMW's race team and pro driver's.

        When I saw the Z4 racing in person it was not having any trouble holding off the Corvettes and Ferraris.

        Maybe the Ferraris and Corvettes need boost too?

        Come on man...

        Hey this half million dollar (if not more) race car looks slow:

        Please put turbos on it someone. It's barely moving with its 9000 rpm 4.4 liter V8 and 2500 pound pound curb weight.

        Calling a Z4 GTE/GT3 slow is borderline retarded:

        All those race cars are slow as $#@!. Too bad they don't have the N54. They're missing out on all the low-end.

        Sticky, pull your tiny little pinhead out of your swollen, bloated ass for a quick second. I said it looks slow accelerating out of the corners. I did not say the car looks slow based on appearance. you do realize that the cars are restricted, right? To compare them to the vettes and ferraris is silly. Car setup and driver ability are the biggest factor in a restricted class.

        Ah, that makes sense man. It looks slow to you so you say it needs turbos or a supercharger but then say they are restricted.

        So which is it? They need to remove the restrictors? Or that you can't really judge based on the video and instead decide to do the typical N54 fanboy nonsense which is 'needs torque' to be quick?

        You said a dedicated professional motorsports race car looks slow and needs a turbo kit to be fast. I've seen some dumb $#@! but wow...
