Luhr’s 2016 IMSA WTSCC BMW anniversary livery revealed

BMW Team RLL has unveiled the design for Lucas Luhr’s M6 GTLM ahead of its 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship campaign.

Luhr, who claimed a victory and numerous podiums with the team last season, will partner John Edwards, Graham Rahal and Kuno Wittmer behind the wheel of the #100 machine, a number chosen in honour of BMW’s centenary.

The #100 M6 GTLM’s striking livery incorporates a range of design elements that celebrate the future of BMW, including intricate graphics highlighting the Bavarian manufacturer’s ‘Next 100 Years’ theme.

Its distinctive appearance is enhanced by a novel 3D latticework design across the entire body, which, according to BMW, bears a significance that will become clear later on in the year.

Lucas will debut the new-look car and get his 2016 title challenge underway at Daytona’s Rolex 24 this weekend, with the race itself starting on Saturday 30 January at 14:30 local time.
