Another great April fools joke from BMW, right? Not so fast. Does anyone remember the M3 pick-up BMW showed off to the world on April 1st, 2011? While we all had a laugh and assumed BMW had photoshopped the pictures, it turns out that the pictures were real and a BMW M3 Pick-up had actually been built. Not for mass production, but as a replacement to the sole E30 M3 pick-up used as a parts hauler around the Munich plant. So while we’re 99.99% sure this is an April fool’s joke, there’s a chance that one determined engineer in Munich is staying late tonight to see if they might be on to something.
Let’s also take a look at some brilliant BMW April fools pranks from the past several years.
