ZGT is an original design which extrapolates from the iconic BMW "507" of 1956-1959, a model that never evolved because of financial woes that forced BMW to turn away from sports cars to building more economical transportation.
If not for BMW's misfortunes, the 507 might have followed the path that Ferrari took when evolving the 250GT into their legendary 1962-1964 "250GTO," an icon of the golden age of the grand turismo sports racing car.
ZGT is a coach-built composite body for the 1996-2002 BMW E36/7 "Z3" platform. The Z3 was produced in large numbers, thus is readily available as an inexpensive donor platform. It shares parts with other BMW platforms, and enjoys good aftermarket support for replacement parts, and for performance enhancements.
Designed for no-cut, no-weld installation, the major panels all bolt-on using factory BMW hardware from the donor car. Only a few trim panels are bonded-on.
Z3 donors are available with high-revving 4- and 6-cylinder BMW engines. They can be retrofitted with engines from other BMW platforms, as well as GM LS-series engines and other power plants.
Retail price of the ZGT panel package is US$9650, FOB Scottsdale, Arizona. Crating service is available, as well as domestic US, international, and overseas shipping. Installation service is also available on the customer's donor car, or locally-sourced donor cars.
