In the United States, students have transformed a Toyota Tacoma pickup by grafting it with a BMW 3 Series E30 front end: the result is quite successful!
Unlike Mercedes and its X-Class, a revamped version of the Nissan Navara, BMW never produced a pickup. There was indeed a pick-up based on a BMW M3 E92, produced by the brand in 2011 for April Fool’s Day, or even this BMW X7 transformed into a pick-up by interns from BMW Munich, but none of these models were not produced in series.
Starting from a Toyota Tacoma of 2001, American students of CETC (Shelby County Career Tech Education Center) have grafted to the Japanese pick-up a front panel of BMW 3 Series E30. Both models were out of use, and were therefore used for this project.
The front bumper, radiator grille, front lights, bonnet as well as the front fenders were borrowed from the German sedan, and were grafted onto the Toyota Tacoma, which can be recognized from the doors and up to the rear of the vehicle, with its imposing tipper.
The interior of the Tacoma has also been kept, while the whole has received a few touches of glossy black paint to give it a more sporty look. If some small details betray the operation, such as for example the junction between the lower part of the front fender and the door, this crazy project is rather successful! It was exhibited this year at the Alabama Auto Show, which ran from April 15 to 18, 2021.
