Recently, the engineers from BMW were spotted on Nurburgring while testing a model that most probably shocked few people around. We talk about a pickup version of the current M3 generation. In the beginning, they managed to leave us speechless as the combination of a sports car with the purposes of a pickup model were not blending very well together.
Today, BMW announced through a press release that the pickup model was just a joke prepared for April Fool’s day. However, at that moment, everything seemed to be serious as the prototype got its layer of camouflage and other features for a prototype being under serious tests.
The head of product communications within BMW, Dirk Arnold, told us that this is not a model that follows to be introduced in the series production and all of this was a joke. However, he added that this prototype is available if someone would offer to enter a competition dedicated to the pickup models.
Without doubt, it would be a very strong rival considering the performance of the M model, the Germans claiming in the end that they will never develop such a model in this segment.
