What do you make of this? An Australia only model maybe? haha

There's definately a market for it... look at your fully optioned HSV Maloo's that have never seen a load in the back. I like it.

i think it's awesome. Sits a bit funny, but it would be a cool alternative to the maloo utes

Looks like something aussie golfer Stuart Appleby already did!

Custom built M5 ute. I've seen this in person and saw it driving back from the island, it was AWESOME.

For the guy that wants to throw the occasional thing in the back and have a better quality car than a Holden it would be great.
A lot of trade bosses use utes as they get a tax break from doing it... why not have a nice one.

It's different. Itd be abit of fun and a change from anything else on the road, but i don't really see there being a huge market for them.

Yeah that M5 is a work of art, I read the build up a while ago. The M3 looks crap, maybe a chop?

Yea at first i thought it was a chop because i can't see a real viable reason for BMW wanting to create an M3 ute.
