BMW M3 Touring, the sporty station wagon got spied on at the Nurburgring

The new BMW M3 Touring is certainly one of the most anticipated models of the German manufacturer. The debut is expected in the course of 2022 (in summer) and, in recent times, the Munich house has kept the attention on this sporty model high through teasers and mini videos. Now, thanks to a video from CarSpyMedia it is possible to take a further look at the sports station wagon in action on the Nurburgring track.

BMW is finalizing the development of its car and this circuit is ideal to be able to tweak the set-up to make the car even more effective in the corners. The M3 Touring still appears with a camouflage livery. However, several aspects of its design are still noticeable. Also, in the past some photos had surfaced showing the car without any camouflage. At the level of the front there will be no particular differences with the BMW M3. Only a few small details could change as the M3 Touring should be based on the restyling of the BMW 3 Series.

In any case, we will always find the maxi double kidney that has caused the fans of the German brand to discuss so much. Speaking of what’s going to be under the hood, reports say there should be the M3 Competition’s 3-liter twin-turbo 6-cylinder. So, a 375 kW (510 hp) with 650 Nm of torque. Then there will be four-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The performance, therefore, should be very similar to that of the BMW M3. However, given the inevitable weight gain, there is likely to be a slight deterioration in acceleration times.

The sports station wagon wasn’t BMW’s only high-performance car that was spied on at the Nurburgring. In fact, the new BMW M4 CSL has also been intercepted, which will soon be brought to its debut (we are talking about May). Car that should be characterized by being lighter than the BMW M4 and to have an even more powerful version of the 3-liter twin-turbo 6-cylinder.

In fact, we are talking about 404 kW (550 hp). These two new sports models are just some of the innovations that BMW will present to celebrate 50 years of the M division.
