Chassis and undercarriage

Chassis:

Efficient aerodynamics and a low-maintenance design for simple repairs: the exterior of the BMW M6 GT3 is also fine-tuned for performance, while at the same time ensuring the car is economical. The facts:

– Exterior completely made of carbon fibre
– Aerodynamically optimised chassis to comply with regulations for GT3 cars to be introduced in 2016 (splitter, diffusor, rear wing)
– Closed undercarriage
– Makrolon® discs (heated front disc)
– Easily accessible connections for lifting equipment, engine oil, and checking the oil
– Easily accessible brake liquid reservoirs and data export connections
– LED headlights
– Air jack system
– Rapid fuelling system (mountable on right or left of car)
– Carbon-fibre crash structure at front and CFRP crash element at rear for maximum safety

Undercarriage:

– Double wishbone axle at front and rear (adjustable height, camber, track, and roll centre)
– Öhlins shock absorbers (four-way adjustable)
