BMW M3 ute captured on video – Click above to watch video on YouTube

The one-off BMW M3 pickup truck/ute has taken the automotive world by storm. Spy photos of the sporty pickup conversion hit the Internet last week, and comment sections and forums were maelstroms of speculation soon after. As Autoblog learned yesterday straight from the horse's mouth, the M3 pickup is an April Fools joke by an automaker with enough money and free time to pull off such a prank.

Follow the jump Click here to watch the first video we've seen of the M3 ute out running errands through dense fog around its only stomping grounds, the famed Nürburgring in Germany.

      When I read the headline for this article, I wasn't expecting it to look like that. I don't know what I'd think if I saw it coming down the road. It might be a neat crossover, but I still prefer a classic truck. bebops-glassworks.com

      I honestly thought this was a Dodge Rampage with a new front end when I first saw it - before I read the headline..almost made me excited.

      I would think that this was something to do partially with pickup racing. Mitsubishi, Cadillac, Chevy and Ford have been doing this for a bit now. BMW is about performance and racing, why not hit all the series?

      I think the marketing folks at BMW have been spending too much time with their colleagues at MINI. Unfortunately, the kitsch didn't rub off quite right.

      This is not a joke. This is an attempt by bmw to see if this would be positive talk or negative.

        With that lightened back end, it would make sooo much drifting fun available with minimal effort.
