Exclusive: BMW M3 Touring won’t happen image

BMW has absolutely zero plans of putting a Touring version of the M3 into production, as a company insider has recently confirmed with us.

Audi may have the RS4 Avant and Mercedes-Benz the C63 AMG Estate but that doesn’t mean that BMW wants to play on the same level as its two main rivals so don’t expect an M3 Touring anytime soon, or anytime to be more specific. This has been confirmed by an official within the company who was asked about a possible development of such a vehicle.

“There will be no such car ever put into production. (M3 Touring)”, said the BMW official.

The more practical version of the BMW M3 may never see daylight but that doesn’t mean that customers cannot order the model in a sedan body style or if they don’t care about practicality all that much, they can also turn their heads towards the M4 Coupe or the M4 Convertible, which are all packing the same 3.0 liter I6 engine under their hoods, with six cylinders inline, which is capable of producing a total output of 431 HP and a peak torque of 550 Nm (405 lb-ft). The unit can be connected to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, sending power to the RWD. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the M3 needs just 4.2 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). This can be raised to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the M Driver’s package.
