Now a veteran of the April Fools’ Day follies, BMW went a little further than mere Photoshop when it came to its 2011 BMW M3 Pickup. Hailed as the first BMW M model to come with a trailer tow hitch, the M3 Pickup was a real vehicle, sporting a 420-horsepower V8 plus a 450-kilogram load capacity in its rear bed. In advance of its global unveiling on April 1, 2011, BMW even ran the “fastest targa pickup in the world” at Germany’s famous Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit.

Looks like it would be a good fit for the 5.0TA.

Maybe the new 1.5SA. Sleeps one and a half.

That's a cool looking truck car. Throw in a stick, diesel, and 4wd and I'll take one.
