The BMW M3 Touring is the Ultimate M Car

For the record, it’s also the first M3 in wagon form throughout its 36-year history

Throughout its 36-year history, this is the first time that a BMW M3 Touring has been put into production, which makes this vehicle a huge deal among car enthusiasts

While the controversial grille of the M3 and M4 have practically carried over into the M3 Touring, almost all is forgiven thanks to its svelte wagon body

As a result, BMW is proud to highlight that the M3 Touring is also the most practical M3 ever, as it can offer as much as 53.3 cubic feet of space with the second-row seats folded down

The BMW M3 Touring adopts the updated interior of the facelifted 3 Series, which means it now comes with iDrive 8 as standard

The M3 Touring will only available in Competition, which means it uses a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six that produces 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque

This engine is connected to an eight-speed automatic, while power is sent through an M xDrive all-wheel drive (AWD) system

This enables the M3 Touring to have a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 3.6 seconds, while its top speed is 280 km/h (174 mph)

Other upgrades made to the M3 Touring include M-tuned suspension, Active M Differential, and more powerful brakes, though you could opt for carbon-ceramic discs

The BMW M3 Touring also happens to be the fastest wagon to ever go around the Nurburgring, achieving a lap time of just 7 minutes, 35.060 seconds--faster than a more powerful M5 Competition
