According to a recent report, BMW is preparing an estate version of the M3 range-topping model.

Slovenian Avto Magazin says the M3 Touring will probably be ready for this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show with sales starting shortly after.

No other details are currently available but it’s not hard to imagine the model will get sporty bumpers, larger wheels and all other exterior and interior features of the M3/M4. Power will likely be provided by the same 3.0-liter engine with 431 PS (317 kW) and a maximum torque of 550 Nm (406 lb-ft).

When fitted to the sedan and the coupe, this unit provides a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 4.1 seconds, so the M3 Touring will likely be 0.1-0.2 seconds slower. The 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed will remain unchanged.
