For the first time in history – the BMW M3 gets a station wagon version!

The Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate are finally gaining competition as BMW introduces the first M3 Touring.

It has been rumored for years that BMW will introduce the M3 in the station wagon variant, but now everything has come true: the M3 Touring is based on the M3 Competition and has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine developing 510 hp and 650 Nm.

It is connected exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the standard M xDrive all-wheel drive system.

This setting allows the M3 Touring to reach 100 km / h from standstill in 3.6 seconds, while top speed is limited to 280 km / h.

Of course, the M3 Touring is also equipped with a sports suspension and Active M differential. The wheels are 19 and 20 inches in diameter and the brakes can be ordered with optional carbon-ceramic discs.

Thanks to all these improvements, the M3 Touring managed to cross the Nürburgring track in 7: 35,060, which is a new record for caravans.

As for the rest of the car, it more or less follows the rates of the M3 and M4 Coupe models. In addition, the caravan offers additional convenience in the form of a large trunk of 500 liters.

The good news is that the rear window opens separately, while the trunk door is electrically operated.

As for the interior, all the novelties from the redesigned Series 3 have been applied here, which means that it has a new large curved display consisting of a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 14.9-inch multimedia system. They are joined by Merino leather sports seats and a sports steering wheel.

The new BMW M3 Touring will go into production in November, and German customers can order it as early as September.
