BMW Ute

  1. New M3 convertible pickup revealed today.

    BMW has revealed what is claimed to be the world’s fastest utility.

    The luxury truck was unveiled today, with BMW saying the new M3 ute – which is powered by a 309kW engine and boasts a 450kg load capacity – takes “race-oriented driving pleasure and everyday utility to an entirely new level”.

    The targa hard-top roof can be removed, cutting 20kg from the weight and the when you remove the tonneau cover it exposes a heavy duty chequer-plate lined tray which is capable of hauling 20 golf bags.

    It’s also the first BMW M3 to come with a tow bar hitch.

  13. All that thing would be good for is spinning up the rear wheels and sliding the arse out. At least that's my recollection of driving a high-powered ute. I almost prefer FWD! Almost.

  14. ...boasting 450kg load capacity?...what's to boast when there are 1 tonne utes out there?

    and golf bags?...seriously? would be cooler if they said 2 motorcross bikes while towing a caravan.

  18. lol kneedragon

    Not to be outdone, Mercedes has returned fire with a C63 AMG ute, and with 450 horsepower on tap it will comfortably tow the M3 ute when it breaks down due to some obscure electrical problem.
