BMW Z3M Roadster V8 LS3
BMW Z3M Craig Taylor conversion. This is a non expense spared LS3 powered Z3. The engine was stroked to 7.0ltr. The whole conversion is documented in detail on zroadster net forum
Power figures are 594bhp +554ft lbs of torque at the wheels not the bar
During my ownership the car has been set up and corner weighted by Top Cats racing. The front calipers and discs have been replaced and upgraded at a cost of Pounds 3800. The car runs on new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The ignition leads are new. Fully serviced with oils and break fluids. The wing has been added.
The car is easy to drive on the road and actually quite economical on the motorway. I have been to Bedford Autodrome and we managed a 3.02min lap on 3 year old tires and brakes with only one gearshift from 4th to 3rd and up again. The car handles incredibly well. There is no understeer the set up is a perfect. Apparently the intention of the previous owner was to drive through Europe doing the odd track day.
Mechanically the car is in very good condition, the paintwork is not concours, the interior is very good, the seats are in almost perfect condition, everything is in working order.
I believe this to be most likely the best and possibly only LS3 Z3M Roadster in Europe.
The price for this conversion is in excess of Pounds 20,000.00. This does not include the donor vehicle!
