Some of you might remember the BMW M3 pickup which was unveiled on Fools Day back in 2011. The one-off M3 truck was described at the time as being the “fastest pickup in the world” by Dr. Segler, former BMW M boss.

The truck achieves a top speed of 300 km/h and the kerb weight of the world’s fastest pickup undercuts that of the E93 BMW M3 Convertible by around 50 kilograms. Removing the Targa roof shaves off a further 20 kg while at the same time lowering the car’s centre of gravity. Maximum load capacity has been raised to 450 kilograms. That gives the loading area of the BMW M3 Pickup the capacity to carry up to 20 standard 46-inch golf bags.

    It looks like an altered M3 convertible, that’s one thing I don’t like about BMW’s hardtop convertible. The back end looks square like the back of a pickup with a coupe like roof sitting on it. It looks fine with the top down, but when it’s up the rear portion of the roof doesn’t have enough rake and the trunk lid is too long. It looks good enough I had an E92 M3 hardtop convertible and may look at the new M4 convertible, but design wise I just think the roof could be better.
