BMW M3 Pickup is it on the cards?

For those that were disappointed by General Motors’ decision to cancel plans for a Pontiac G8 Sport Truck, BMW may have the perfect replacement model in the works. While camped out at Germany’s famed Nurburgring, our spy spotted an incredibly odd automotive concoction – an M3 prototype wearing a pickup truck bed.

While we don’t have full details on this El Camino-inspired M3, we can confirm it is part of BMW’s Nurburgring test fleet. What place it holds in that lineup, however, remains a mystery.

Not to bad from the rear
Although it’s highly unlikely that BMW is actually planning a utility version of its popular M3 model, we can’t really explain the existence of this prototype. Our spies are trying to get to the bottom of this mystery, and we’ll update this space as soon as we learn anything new.
