The BMW M3 Turing Still Not released, but it is already setting LAP records.
The first-generation M3 wagon lapped the Green Hell in the test at 7: 35.060, shaving 10 seconds from the previous record set by the Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon.
There are still 15 seconds left to do what the Lighter M4 CSL will do, but you won’t be able to get a Labrador behind the CSL.
It is also within the touching distance of the marker set by Tesla Model S Plade for the production of electric vehicles.
Behind a long teaser campaign, Turing will be unveiled at the Speedy Goodwood Festival.
Available only under the guise of an all-wheel drive competition, Turing packs a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine that produces 375kW of power and 650Nm of torque.
Surprisingly, previously spied M3 Turing prototypes confirm 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.
BMW’s reluctance to develop long-roofed M3s has long been misleading, especially considering that it has applied the M name to tuned versions of the X3, X4, X5 and X6 SUVs and has offered M5 wagons in the past.
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.
