[VIDEO] BMW M3 Touring Launches with Impressive Acceleration Test

The versatile BMW M3 Touring, now available for those who prefer non-SUVs, has begun deliveries. Observe the M3 Touring in action on the open road. Finished in Skyscraper Grey with a fully Merino Ivory White leather interior, see how it goes on this acceleration test.

The BMW G81, known to enthusiasts, is available only as a Competition model with xDrive and automatic transmission. Despite the harsh 2023 regulations and mandatory gasoline particle filters, it boasts a fantastic sound. The twin-turbo “S58” engine produces a powerful symphony. The 3.0-litre inline-six engine is the last of its kind, as future M models will integrate electrification.

This brand-new video demonstrates the 503 horsepower engine during a launch control acceleration test. The sprint was not timed, as claimed by BMW. It appears to accelerate from a stop to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than four seconds. According to the Munich-based carmaker, the run can be finished in as little as 3.6 seconds, while the acceleration from 0 to 124 mph (100 km/h) takes 12.9 seconds.

The M3 Touring’s highest speed is 155 mph (250 km/h) from the factory, but an add-on M Driver’s Package raises the cap to 174 mph (280 km/h). Drivers can disable the dynamic stability control system and switch to a 2WD mode for a pure rear-wheel-drive experience, much like the M3 Competition xDrive Sedan.

It has taken a while for BMW to release its RS4 Avant and AMG C63 Estate rival, but the wait was worthwhile. The M3 Touring, however, is not precisely inexpensive; its base price in its native Germany is almost €100,000 before any of the many available extras.
