BMW M3 V8 Pickup is a Frankenstein Car Made in Bavaria


Could be the best 14,000 Euros you've ever spent.

There’s something oddly appealing about a BMW M3 pickup. Perhaps it’s the brazen attitude towards chopping up one of the carmaker’s most revered creations. Or maybe the attraction lies in the combination of a high-performance engine and a flat bad utility. This particular Frankenstein M3 actually started out as a BMW 316i Coupe. The targa top of the Baur edition was then added along with the bumpers and rear fenders from an E30 M3.

Underhood, the 1.6-liter inline-four was replaced with a 4.0-liter V8 from a BMW 540i and paired with a short-shifting five-speed manual. The steering system and front seats come from an E36 M3 and the brakes from an M5. The owner also upgraded the exhaust system, suspension, instrument panel gauges and added a set of 17-inch alloys. With 99,000 miles on the clock, the BMW E30 M3 Baur V8 Pickup is priced at 14,000 Euros. Any takers?
