The Crazy and Pick Up Trucks
BMW M3 pick up truck
Germany is not a nation we routinely associate with pick up trucks so when BMW announced this little beauty on 1 April 2011 it didn t fool too many people. Except it did! First rate April fools gag though it was, BMW s M3 pick up was also real.
The 414hp V8 ute was specially commissioned from BMW s M Division and is said to be capable of 186mph. Weighing 50kg less than the equivalent M3 Coupe and with most of that bulk disappearing from over the driven rear wheels, it s hard to imagine the M3 ute being anything less than a monumental handful.
M3 pick ups aren t exactly unprecedented either. BMW has built open backed versions of the E30 M3 and there s a E46 M3 truck doing its tyre smoking rounds too.
