We’re also willing to forgive the bucktooth grille if BMW spins off the M4 into a shooting brake

LISTEN 01:40

It might sound like we’re pushing our luck here since BMW is already working on a station wagon version for the new M3, but looking at these renders, there’s no denying that the M4 would look rad in shooting brake attire.

Here’s the thing. The incoming BMW M3 Touring won’t reach U.S. shores as per BMW’s own admission. Which is a bummer because we’d love to see other drivers’ faces upon hearing that twin-turbo, 3.0-liter flat six mill revved hard at a traffic light from under the hood of a station wagon fitted with child seats. Also, 473 horsepower (or 503 in Competition trim) are nothing to sneeze at either, so there’s that.

It’s easy then to imagine the level of drooling our mouth saw from stumbling upon @sugardesign_1’s renders of a would-be M4 Touring. All of a sudden, the bucktooth grille isn’t scratching our retinas and the whole car looks like BMW itself couldn’t have designed it better.

The artist calls it the BMW M4 Gran Touring Xperformance edition aimed at those who can’t afford the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. Fair enough. But there’s a problem. Two, actually. 1 – most likely we’ll never see it in production guise unless some crazy tuner decides to build a one-off car based on these pictures and 2 – if it does get made, chances are it’ll still cost an arm and a leg.

As a silver lining, do check out @sugardesign_1’s Instagram account for more goodies such as a Safari-style Toyota A90 Supra or a widebody Volkswagen Passat B2 Variant.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
