BMW M3 Pickup

Posted March 18, 2011 by in News | No comments yet

A BMW spokesperson has confirmed to Road & Track that the M3 Pickup recently spotted testing at the Nürburgring is not headed for production. “BMW M did indeed create the pick-up seen on the ’Ring, but it was just an internal project, not something that is in development,” explained Dave Buchko, BMW Advanced Powertrain & Heritage Communications Manager. “There are no plans to produce it.”

The strange-looking prototype likely struck fear into the hearts of BMW fans everywhere. Powered by a high-revving V-8 engine, the M3 can be ordered as a coupe, convertible or sedan. But the idea of a pickup bed slapped onto the back of BMW’s iconic M car seemed a serious stretch, both in terms of serial production and sanity.

So if you were dreaming about someday owning an M3 Pickup (or if the thought gave you nightmares), you can now officially forget about the car/truck arriving in a BMW showroom.
