BMW released official pictures of the one-off M3 pickup, the car that sparked fury in the automotive world when it was first scooped at the Nurburgring.
The Bavarian automaker makes it clear that it’s just a one-off hobby for M department’s engineers and will not be heading into series production. It’s kinda like that V8-powered B-Class Mercedes apprentices had built a whole ago. Nice April Fool’s joke though!
This M3 is not the world’s most powerful pickup, or Ute to be more precise, but it is certainly one of the highest performance ones thanks to the M3’s underpinnings and tailored suspension for the job. They’ve tested it on the Nurburgring the same way they test other high performance model. It gets the same 420 hp V8 as the normal M3. It also has a rear-axle load capacity of up to 450 kg.
BMW proudly says that the back of this truck is enough for 20 standard 46-inch golf bags! But who’s going to drive a pickup to a golf course.
Although the M3 pickup will never be mass produced, but this particular car has gone through the requisite procedures to earn its road certification. So they’re actually going to use it for whatever purpose they have in mind and we are going to hear more about it.
For now, check out these cool pictures of the car:
