BMW has officially unveiled the much-anticipated M3 Touring. This is the first-ever wagon-body M3 to be built in the car’s legacy, with the only thing ever coming close to it being the rare V10-packing BMW M5 E61 Touring from 2007-2010.

Now, the M3 can be used a car for daily driving, capable of carrying you and your family or friends, plus a dog in the rear, with plenty of power to boot. As expected, the car features an M-tuned twin-turbo three-liter straight six unit that produces 510 HP, and 479 lb-ft of torque, which in BMW M3 Competition Touring with M xDrive spec, sees the wagon launch to 62 MPH in just 3.6 seconds (although knowing BMW, this figure is probably quicker in real-life scenarios).

124 MPH is hit in 12.9 seconds, while an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH has been applied per BMW standards. For those looking for extra speed, the BMW M3 Touring can be de-restricted with the M Driver’s Package, which will take the car up to 174 MPH.

All of this is harnessed by the marque’s proprietary four-wheel-drive system which can be fine-tuned by the driver to suit their needs. For example, the power can be distributed between the wheels for optimum amounts of grip, or it can be turned to rear-wheel-drive for less grip.

Elsewhere, we find the now-signature — and divisively infamous — kidney grille design from the latest generation M3 and M4, while at the rear is the all-new Touring structure. Here lie four tailpipes, again set out like its saloon, coupe and convertible counterparts.

As per the cars before it, the Touring features the “Adaptive M” suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers and “M Servotronic” steering with variable ratios, helping the mid-weight car feel nimble and lighter around tight bends and smaller, quick roads. Optional carbon-ceramic brakes can be fitted, sitting behind 19” or 20” rims.

The BMW M3 Touring will debut in the flesh at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, while orders will commence in September before production begins in November 2022. Expect it cost around $80,000 USD before options.

In other news, Prodrive has built a $560,000 USD Subaru Impreza WRX restomod.
