After the release of its lightweight M4 CSL coupe, BMW Executives have confirmed the upcoming M3 Turing Will debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
BMW confirmed the release date at a press event where executives again showed off a partially disguised M3 Turing pre-production model.
We already knew that BMW was going to unveil a new M at the 2022 Festival of Speed, but it was not clear exactly what the car would be.
The BMW M3 Touring has already been confirmed for the Australian market, although we do not know when it will go down.
It is set to be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine that produces 375kW of power and 650Nm of torque. It has the same engine as the high-specific M3 competition and the M4 competition.
The M3 Turing will come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system. It claims 10.3L / 100km of fuel consumption.
Led by the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed Debut, BMW workers have been spying for the 15th time to test a disguised M3 Turing prototype.
Unlike previous teaser and spy photos, we get a clearer picture of what the interior of M3 Turing looks like.
Surprisingly, this Spide M3 Turing prototype ensures that it will get regular M3 sedans and BMW curved displays like the updated 3 Series sedans and wagons.
This vehicle has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with curved dash.
This curved dash runs the latest BMW operating system 8 with new map displays, an advanced intelligent voice assistant, and an interface for M vehicles with an M-specific layout.
The prototype of this espionage is still behind the same black-and-white camouflage wrapper that indicates that the production wagon around the BMW Nurburgring Nordschleife is shooting for a record. It is currently held by a Mercedes-AMG E63S, which lapped Green Hale at 7:45:19.
BMW’s reluctance to develop a long-roofed M3 has long been misleading, especially considering the use of the M name in tuned versions of the X3, X4, X5 and X6 SUVs.
Rival Audi has a rich tradition of high-powered wagons. Its first RS-branded car was the RS2 Avant, which was succeeded by the first generation RS4 which was only offered as a wagon.
Similarly, Mercedes-Benz always offers a wagon version of its hottest, AMG-Fetled C-Class models.
When it is released, the BMW M3 Turing will be the first mass-produced long-haul M-car in the long and storied history of the model. The company only built a prototype E46 M3 wagon in 2000.
BMW has already released high-performance wagons to firms like Alpina.
