It's said to go from 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds, and with its 4.0-litre V8 singing to the heavens, it'll match its technicolour coating with its crazy speed. Utilising race-specific brakes, a fully worked chassis and aerodynamic improvements, the M3 GT2 is also a lot lighter than its production counterpart.
It has been endowed with the number 79, signifying a tribute to the 1979 Art Car which was painted by none other than Andy Warhol. It's no ordinary paintjob, though. It's digitally printed, which involves a solvent-based inkjet (yes, just like your Epson at home, but industrial grade) spraying six colours onto self-adhesive vinyl.
The vinyl is then left to outgas, then laminated and applied by hand to the car. The result is lightweight, but resilient - perfect for an endurance race where weight plays a key factor.
The race begins on June 12 with Andy Priaulx , Dirk Müller and Dirk Werner all set for their long stints behind the wheel.
