El Camino, Who? BMW M3 E92 Pickup Truck Hits The Streets

If you ever felt like there is not enough trunk space in your BMW E92 M3, this is one very cool solution.

Someone clearly liked BMW’s own M3 Pickup concept, built as an April Fool’s joke back in 2011, and decided to build his own, with the kind help of Mad Dog Racing in South Africa.

Under the bonnet of this unique car lies the known four-liter V8 engine, only in this case there is also a supercharger sitting on top of it to make things even more interesting. The builder claims that this is the world’s only supercharged M3 pickup truck in the world and we have no reason to doubt that.

Mad Dog Racing also claims that the finished car is rigid enough to be used as a proper pickup truck, without giving us more details. Certainly chopping the roof off a two-door coupe will always make things a bit flexy-er but that thick B-Pillar should help things remain under control.

Overall the car looks like it’s been created with very high standards, from the bed liner that looks like it’s been there from the factory, to the sliding rear window of the cabin. The only thing that kind of gives away that this is a conversion and not a factory model is the rear tailgate which still opens upward like the one on the regular models.

I don’t know how I feel about this BMW M3 pickup, but I’m sure El Camino fans will love it. As for the rest of you, what do you think?
