Earlier this yr, we had the chance to spend high quality time with the BMW M3 Touring on the Goodwood Pageant of Velocity. Though the tremendous wagon made its first public outing within the UK, the prototypes had been all inbuilt left-hand-drive configuration. If you happen to’re curious to see the AMG C63 Property rival with the steering wheel on the opposite aspect, look no additional than this video.
Shot in the course of the BMW PGA Championship on the Wentworth Membership in London, the footage exhibits the G81 in an Particular person Frozen Black paint. In contrast to the M3 Touring completed in the identical Particular person paint we noticed on the Goodwood FoS, this one does away with the non-obligatory M Efficiency Components. There are not any flashy entrance canards on the bumper or Frozen Gold wheels because it retains the usual specification.
The stealthy wagon has non-obligatory body-hugging bucket seats with a carbon fiber shell, nevertheless it lacks the M3 Sedan’s carbon fiber roof. That’s as a result of BMW M is providing the light-weight roof completely on the saloon, and for 2023, the M340i Sedan will get it as nicely at an extra price. As with all 3 Collection LCI fashions, it comes with the iDrive 8 that includes a 12.3-inch driver’s show and a 14.9-inch touchscreen.
Nevertheless, the M3 has but to obtain a full-on LCI. It’s believed BMW is engaged on visible modifications slated to reach later within the sedan’s life cycle. Logic tells us the wagon will profit from these tweaks as nicely, together with the M4 Coupe and Convertible. These programmed updates are supposed to maintain the M3/M4 contemporary in gentle of a call to lengthen their life cycle till 2027.
The M3 Touring is certainly the do-it-all automotive within the lineup and solely the third ever M Touring, after the E34 and E61 M5 fashions. A fourth is believed to be within the works because the M5 Touring is rumored to return by the center of the last decade.
