BMW M3 Pickup, the Germans April fools prank.

Officials confirmed that BMW E92 M3 model pick-up caught on the Nurburgring was just a joke developed by April fools day.

Recently, a team of engineers testing a prototype of the BMW M3 pick-up version of the Nurburgring circuit. The emergence of such a model has shocked the press and fans mark initially, but was seen as a viable hypothesis given the Munich manufacturer appetite for more specific niches. Subsequently, the development of such a production model BMW officials undermined, and they spoke by Dirk Arnold, head of product communications, which specified that BMW might not ever produce such a vehicle in the segment. Therefore, only one copy of the image is developed by April 1 joke.

However, when it comes to potential entry into a competition in Australia dedicated pick-up models equipped with V8 engines, Dirk Arnold said that the copy created by engineers is available if there is interest, but it did not specify which would support from the plant for such a vehicle and how serious it debutare intentions in such a competition.

Also on April First, BMW will present the “concept” future M5. We say “concept” because it is a pre-production model, chances are that M5’s version number is identical with that exhibit. In terms of presentation, BMW will bring the current generation of M3, with a series of prototypes based on the M3 never reach production. These include both the pick-up image and a convertible version of M3, equipped with a folding hardtop.
