The rear of the BMW M3 Touring officially revealed
BMW is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the M division. One of the ways to celebrate the M brand is with this video series, “We Are M”, in which you get short lessons on different aspects of the M division and its history. This new episode introduces the BMW M3 Touring, the most anticipated upcoming BMW product, and it even officially shows the rear of the car.
The video begins by discussing the first true M3 Touring, which was an E46 M3 Touring prototype. It never entered production, as BMW felt at the time that a long-roofed M3 would be a commercial flop. However, it was the car that really started it all, even if it only proved to BMW that it would be great.
Fast forward more than a decade and BMW is officially building an M3 Touring, a car that fans have been begging BMW to build since the 90s. Since its announcement, we’ve seen spy photos of the M3 Touring, some official and… ‘other less official ones, but we’ve yet to see any meaningful glimpses without its camouflage. Until now, however.
In this new episode of BMW’s ‘We Are M’, BMW M employees remove the wrapping from the back of the M3 Touring, revealing its uncamouflaged sheetmetal for the first time. The reveal begins at 5:00 a.m.
Certainly, as exciting as that is, because this is the first time we’ve seen the BMW M3 Touring, it looks exactly as we expected. It looks like a standard BMW 3 Series Touring but with added M bits. Which means it gets flared wheel arches, a massive rear diffuser and quad tailpipes, the latter of which is a typical M-Division staple.
Although not entirely unexpected, it still looks great. The G21 3 Series Touring is a very nice car, so adding M3 bits will only make it better. The BMW M3 Touring will officially debut this year and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
