It's finally here! The long-awaited M3 estate (wagon) enthusiasts have been dreaming about for years. Customer deliveries have just begun, and we're proud to be part of the world's first documented G81 M3 Touring build in the world.
Check out the YouTube video here:
With our G81 shop car not due to arrive until March/April, we were keen to get our hands on one as soon as possible to work some R44 magic!
R44 Performance is building this example with Sportwagenhandel in Austria - some of the lucky folks to secure one of the very first build slots for the G81.
Who are Sportwagenhandel & what do they do?
Sportwagenhandel is an Austrian automotive company that offers a variety of vehicle services. This includes prestige vehicle sales, maintenance & repairs, financing, rentals & more!
What modifications have been done?
The world's first BMW G81 M3 Touring has a full MHC+ pre-preg carbon kit, featuring an SP1 front splitter, SK1 side skirts, Twin Fin Ducts, an OEM Style Rear Diffuser, GT Style Front Grille, a set of carbon fibre mirror covers, as well as carbon fibre seatbacks.
Also on the exterior, we have installed our brand new CSL Yellow Daytime Running Lights (DRLs).
In terms of performance, the vehicle is dropped on a set of H&R adjustable lowering springs - a prototype being developed with H&R themselves. We've also thrown in a set of Pipercross Panel Air Filters in replacement of the OEM items for more efficient airflow and long-term durability.
In the Sportwagenhandel HQ, there is another white G81 M3 Touring next in line for the R44 treatment.
