The folks over at X-Tomi Design rendered the new BMW M4 Coupe into a pickup truck. Following the same idea as the one-off E92 M3 Pickup, the M4 Pickup gets a longer wheelbase and extends the trunk into a platform.
While super sporty pickup trucks might not be popular in Europe, Australians love their Utes and even seen a few BMW conversions Down Under.
The E92 M3 Pickup wasn’t just a cute conversion but also a fast car. Top speed was limited to 300 km/h while the kerb weight of the 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.
Now with the M4 being already lighter than the previous generation M3, an M4 Pickup will be on paper at least as fast as its predecessor.
Will BMW ever build another one-off? Time will tell, but Fools’ Day is not that far off.
