Would you pay $197k for a Z4?

Yes it's an E89, but I thought this was pretty cool:

Would I pay $197,000 for a Z4? That's not the question you should be asking.

Would you pay $197,000 for a race car with an engine designated S65B44 V8 and is a derivative of the S65B40 V8 found in the E90 M3 Sedan, E92 M3 Coupe and E93 M3 Cabriolet and was produced by the BMW Foundry in Landshut.

BMW Plant Dingolfing contributes the rear-axle transmission, among other things. The front and rear aprons, bonnet, roof, mudguards, rear wing, and many other parts are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic.

The steel chassis of the BMW Z4 GT3, into which a safety cell made of high-tensile precision steel tubes is welded, is manufactured by BMW Plant Regensburg.

As such, the racing car?s chassis comes off the same production line as that of the road version of the BMW Z4. Only at the end of the production process does the racing chassis veer away from the standard production one, in order to be finished by hand.

In total, it takes about 700 man hours to completely assemble a BMW Z4 GT3.
2013 was a successful year for the BMW Z4 GT3, which won numerous races in GT series around the world.

So the answer to your question is hell yes, I would pay $197,000 for a BMW E89 Z4 GT3 Race Car!!!!!!!!
