Let me describe to you how it should be.

It's 2:30a.m.

Your Lucy Liu look alike is now fast asleep with a big smile on her face.

Six miles north of where you live are rural windy two-lane roads surrounded by farm land and all kinds of elevation changes.

8 ounces of Sumatran coffee and your laser focused.

Walk outside, strap yourself into your M4 GT3.
Pull out of the drive onto the street and do six rather gentle miles never going over 3500rpm.
The next 4 miles you gradually do mild accelerations adding about 500 rpm each consecutive time.
Now your out in horse country and you aim to get in a few 140mph straights and a few 100 mph turns.

Put in a total of about 200 miles.

Cool everything down on the ride home.

Haha, nice. How'd you know she's Asian? Actually, my wife is more like Angie Cheong

I think you left out the part where the cop hands me a hefty ticket and my car gets confiscated.

Sounds more for a Fast & Furious movie or a Bond movie shot in Switzerland on a closed road for this purpose.

Otherwise: high risk of car confiscated + jail time + ban + a hefty fine. If you break the limits with more than 20 to 40 km/h and get your license withdrawn, the fines will be set according to your taxable income and wealth (Tagessatz). With a high income you will have to pay a high fine.

Or the scenario may end with a roll off a mountain side.

I think a few people are missing the point. This is a $700K track machine. It’s for legit GT3 class racing. It’s damn epic and totally illegal to put it on the street. There isn’t a single piece of frill on this, it’s purpose built, light as hell and packs an insane 600hp engine.

This is a marvel, and no matter what it looks like - it all adds up to awesome.

Yes you can purchase it, it’s for GT3 class racing only. It’s a cool $600K base price. Oh, BTW they don’t offer financing on it.. bummah. In addition to needing a professional racing license to purchase, you also need to be referred by a BMW race engineer.

Here’s the order form if you are interested. https://www.bmwusa.com/content/dam/b...2176073369.pdf
