Last week BMW revealed it’s first M3 superwagon at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Based on the standard M3 sedan, the BMW M3 Touring takes advantage of the BMW 3 Series Touring bodyshell to enter a whole new arena of practicality and high performance.
Delivered long after Audi’s RS4 and RS6 wagons, the BMW M3 Touring is set to rival its competitors with a powerful M TwinPower Turbo 510 hp inline-six engine that takes us from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 174 mph. The M3 Touring will only be sold with the stronger BMW M3 Performance spec and it will only come with all-wheel drive.
Inside, the cockpit features the new BMW Curved Display alongside the BMW Live Cockpit Plus and other luxury touches like the optional M Carbon bucket seats.
“It’s a full-line M3 Touring with the production due to start in November,” says BMW M3 Product Manager Hagan Franke. “European deliveries beginning in December. It won’t go to the US or China, but it will be in Japan, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.”
Which means production will be split between the expected biggest markets of Germany and the UK, along with Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Switzerland, South Korea and Japan.
