A small city in the center of South Florida is preparing for international arrivals of the best kind for the 63rd year in a row, and BMW is ready to step out in full style.
For the 63rd annual 12-hours of Sebring at the Sebring Racetrack, BMW has unveiled a design to commemorate their first victory at the track, and it is stunning. A March 14 press release details this red, white and shades of blue design, which commemorates the 3.0 CSL that first won the marque’s first title at the track in 1975.
1975 also marks another historic moment for BMW that ties in well to this new design. It was the first year that the Art Cars appeared on the Le Mans racetrack, kicking off the spectacular sight of seeing some of the most heralded contemporary artists take their hand to a brutally quick piece of machinery. Our Dec. 22, 2014 article covers the introduction of the BMW art cars to the world, signalling the marque’s emphasis on the beauty of engineering.
As you can see in the gallery below, each line added to the 40th Anniversary Z4 GTLM’s design follows the flow of not just the vehicle’s machined edges, but also the flow of air as it passes over the hood and around the sides of the car.
