One-off BMW M3 pickup unveiled

BMW Motorsport has secretly developed a number of one-off vehicles deep inside the bowels of Munich over the years. Some of these vehicles, from the ill-fated E34 convertible, E39 M5 touring and M8 have been exposed over time.

Today BMW M unveiled their most recent and public one-off vehicle. The BMW M3 pickup truck was finally revealed after months of candid spy photos have been distributed over the Internet. The one-off M3 has the same high-revving V8 as in the other three versions of the current M3, producing 420 hp. However, unlike the other three variants, the M3 pickup has a rear axle load capacity of 990 lbs. The roof of the M3 pickup is also unique in that it has a removable targa covering.

It’s probably a good thing the M3 pickup will be the one and only M3 to feature a tow hitch and, according to BMW, be able “to carry up to 20 standard 46-inch golf bags.”

Unfortunately, like all of the other secret one-off creations that have emerged from BMW’s motorsport division, the M3 pickup truck will once again recede into the secret storage rooms within BMW headquarters.
