As part of its 50th-anniversary celebrations, BMW has announced that its first-ever production M3 Touring will be revealed at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 23. Much to the excitement of BMW fans, the M3 Touring wagon was first announced in 2020 and teased once again taking a hot lap around the Nürburgring in 2021.
The five-door Touring models offer a large tailgate, widened axles, large front intakes, four exhaust tailpipes, Pirelli P Zero tires, and increased interior space with intelligent functionality. Powered by a 6-cylinder M TwinPower turbo engine, the base model is rated at 473 BHP with a six-speed manual transmission while the Competition trim is tuned up to 503 BHP with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
“Like no other car, the new BMW M3 Touring will represent the fascination of superior driving dynamics and practicability and the larger space on offer in an estate car concept in a very competitive segment,” says BMW M3 Touring Product Manager, Hagen Franke. “In doing so, it will, typically for a BMW M3, be nothing less than the benchmark for driving dynamics in a vehicle with five seats, five doors and greatly increased stowage space.”
Look for the BMW M3 G81 to be unveiled later this month, and learn more about the upcoming introduction at BMW’s website.
