Spy Shots: BMW M3 Pickup--Not What You Think

Follow Nelson

A couple of days ago the Interwebs broke out in song over a vehicle spotted at the Nurburgring: a pickup version of the BMW M3. Marrying the most fanciful of auto-journo oddball car dreams, the carryall sports car looked like a Munich miracle.

Today, we have a new set of close-up shots of this oddball M3 and yes, it's still not a prototype for a coming production car.

In fact, it's not a prototype for anything, really. According to the sleuthing of Jalopnik, the car is actually a transport vehicle for one of the motorcycle racing teams based at the 'Ring, used to haul parts around in style. It never leaves the compound.

Sad, but it's still a sight to behold, and imagine what could have been. We'll leave you to your reverie, though your love for this German ute will almost certainly be forever unrequited.

  1. Better then being an April Fools day joke like the Lotus truck reports were

  2. I would say it's fortunate it's not a prototype for production.

  3. bet a lot of rich americans have rushed for their chequebooks.

  4. If it never leaves the compound, then I am very surprised these are the first shots of it!

  5. I kind of disagree with the notion that it is only used to haul around parts considering that it has disguise tape around it. Maybe its a test bed for something else BMW is considering.

  6. Uses 'Disguise' tape motif as a racing stripe. Not meant to 'disguise'.

  7. That has got to be the most ugly thing I have ever seen. Looks like a Subaru with a Pontiac front end. Wow what junk, is that the best they can do?

  8. I am thankful that it does NOT leave the compound, because it looks disgusting. I can just envision the people who would buy such a car, and it makes me uneasy. BMW needs to keep it for hauling parts and bikes. NEVER make it into a production car please!!

  9. BMW has finally gone redneck.

  10. OMG that looks soo ugly. Makes BMW look bad
