The 2001 to 2005 BMW M3 GTR is a GT race car by BMW that is featured in Forza Motorsport and all subsequent Xbox 360 Motorsport titles.

It is featured as the 2003 #42 M3-GTR and 2003 #43 M3-GTR in Forza Motorsport.

In all subsequent titles, it is featured as the 2005 #2 BMW M3 GTR as well as the 2001 #6 Prototype Technology Group M3 GTR since Forza Motorsport 3.

Synopsis

It is the race variant to the BMW M3 GTR. It contested in the 2001 American Le Mans Series in the GT class with a "P60B40" V8 engine, which allowed it to win seven out of ten races in its class, being the dominant car during that time. After the 2001 American Le Mans Series season, the road-going variant was released as an effort to satisfy homologation rules, until last-minute changes to homologation were made to the 2002 season which saw the car being banned from the American Le Mans Series, therefore with BMW pulling out from the season.

Another series of BMW M3 GTR race cars also contested in the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race from 2003-2005, where it won in 2004, famously driven by Hans-Joachim Stuck, and again in 2005. Both victories were backed up with a 1-2 finish. It was retired after winning the 2005 Nurburgring 24 Hours race.

Trivia

  • The #2 BMW M3 GTR variant is the winning car from the 2005 Nurburgring 24 Hours race.
  • The 2001 #6 Prototype Technology Group variant re-uses the body shell and specs of the 2005 model, as compared to the actual car.
  • Furthermore, the 2003 models in the first Forza Motorsport, despite them being Nurburgring 24 Hours cars, use the specs of the American Le Mans Series version, at 444hp and 1100kg (2425lb).
