First of April is continuing at BMW. The automaker has officially taken the wraps off the M3 pickup.
BMW says the car is as aerodynamic as the M3 Coupe, has a top speed of 186mph and unlike any other car in the M series range, it can carry up to 20 golf bags and comes with a tow bar.
The M3 pickup comes with a 309 kW/420 PS (414 bhp) power plant and a rear payload capacity of 450 kg – which sounds realistic enough.
The kerb weight of the world’s fastest pickup undercuts that of the BMW M3 Convertible by around 50 kg, and removing the Targa roof shaves off a further 20 kg while at the same time lowering the car’s centre of gravity.
Notwithstanding these unquestionable stand-out qualities, the BMW M3 Pickup will not be heading for the golf course or series development, but will retain its status as an exclusive one-off. It is earmarked for use as a workshop transport vehicle for BMW M GmbH.
