Just a few weeks ago, BMW gave us a teaser photo of the BMW M3 wagon. Everyone panicked until they saw that the vehicle was not reaching the US markets. Showing his disapproval, a man named Kian started a petition to bring the Bimmer to the United States.
The accompanying documentation talks about Audi bringing its RS6 Avant and encourages BMW to do the same with its G81 M3 Touring. Wherever it ends up, what is this M3 wagon?
Rumors suggest the vehicle will use the same 3.0-liter biturbo inline-six as the M3 and M4, putting out 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) sent to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic – the Competition version. is said to make 503 hp (375 kW) with just an automatic gearbox on offer. Whether you prefer two or three pedals, information suggests the spacious Bimmer won’t go on sale until model year 2023.
As for the front fascia elephant in the room, don’t worry as the larger front kidneys are delicately balanced with the surrounding grips in the front fascia. Taking a peek around the camouflage, the rest of the car features aggro side skirts accompanied by flared wheel arches to contain additional rubber. At the rear are the same diffuser and the quadruple tailpipe as seen in the advertising photos.
It doesn’t matter if we can get the M3 wagon across the pond, it’s great to see BMW listening to their fans’ requests for such a vehicle. Of course, you could say that the German manufacturer had already built an M3 Touring in 2000, but this vehicle was never officially put on sale.
All is not lost for American enthusiasts as the M3 sedan and M4 coupe will debut on September 23, 2020 and are expected to go on sale in early 2021.
