"There aren't words to convey just how happy this makes us. With Spring officially licking at the sanctified asphalt of the Nürburgring, testing season has kicked into high gear. Our elite squad of spy photographers has set up camp to take in the action and happened to catch this bizarre beastie obliterating its tires amongst a herd of other BMW mules. As you might expect, there's exactly zero information on the machine other than it looks for all the world to be an M3 pickup.

Trust us when we say that we're going to sleep more soundly tonight knowing that somewhere in the world, this creation exists.

We have no idea what the BMW engineers are up to with this one, though we love the idea of an M3-powered spiritual successor to the El Camino throne (bonus points for the camouflage as racing stripes motif, too). Assumed to have the same 4.0-liter V8 found in the nose of the current M3, this beast should be be good for 414 horsepower – perfect for making lickety-split runs to the hardware store.

We'd sell a passel of vital organs for a little seat time in this thing, even if it does simply turn out to be an early April Fool's joke. The shots are real, so perhaps BMW's design team are just blowing off some steam, or readying a one-off for Europe's tuner extravaganza of choice, the Essen Motor Show?"

Crazy, all it needs now is a mount on the rear windshield for an Super 90. Yeehaww!

Read about this.

It's never going to be released. Apparently it was just a little in-house project.

The "people" that did this are BMW-M, so I guess they're allowed, no?

I'm mind-boggled that the reaction to this fun project is overwhelmingly negative and yet somehow you guys can look at that awful, awful red mustang/skyline monstrosity e30 and say "Gee, yeah, some good bodywork there..."

Anyway.

This thing would sell like hotcakes in Australia if they built it.
Looks pretty sweet IMO.

I know where "these kinda things" are popular its in Australia LOL they love there trucks over there. I was on a crazy BMW site not to long ago and they were featuring a BMW M5 that looked exactly like this M3 truck. The truck was featured from Australia.

Yeah we've all seen that thing. It's Stuart Appleby's car (PGA Golfer).
That thing is even more badass than this E90. It was done by a custom show however, not by BMW which is what makes this E90 that much more momentous.

I like it! you could do some drifting and fetch some wood for the fire place!!!!! lol
Utes are very popular in Australia and near countries.
I saw a few E30s in South Africa that were "pick-up-ed" and they looked hot! Just did not have a camera to take pics at the time.
One in particular had the whole E30 M3 look and some form of V8 (just seen it drive by so dont know the spec) and it looked pretty cool!!!!!!

Yes perhaps you're right, I didn't think about it like that this M3 truck is made by BMW. In other words made the right way.
