The boys in Bavaria have built an M3 that hauls ass — and half a ton of stuff.
This slick one-off is based on the BMW M3 convertible, which is stiff enough to handle the extensive excising of sheet metal. Damned if it doesn’t look great. It’s got a targa top, a diamond-plate bed and a 420-horsepower V8 because too much is always just enough. It weighs 100 kilos less than the convertible, which puts it at 1,780 kilos (3,924 pounds).
Yes, we know it is April Fool’s Day, but this is the real deal – it was seen last month at the Nurburgring, where BMW says it hit 186 mph. No plans for production; the car was built as a shop truck for BMW’s M-Sport division.
