Facelifted BMW 3-Series Touring Spied Testing For The Police

A camouflaged police car is not something we often see on the roads, but this is the case with the pictured BMW 3-Series Touring facelift. The model was spied testing on public roads under bright sunlight, wearing police gear with camouflage wrap on both ends.

The upcoming facelifted 3-Series has already been spied in sedan and Touring bodystyle, with an Alpina bodykit and with optional M Performance Parts. However, the Bavarian firm is also a long-time supplier for the German police, thus the police car version of the 3er must also undergo testing.

All members of the facelifted 3-Series range will benefit from redesigned front and rear bumpers together with a new set of LED headlights and a slightly modified grille. This special prototype gets the police treatment with blue and iridescent yellow graphics on a white bodywork, and a roof-mounted lightbar/siren. The Touring bodystyle is more fitting to the new role, since the police officers can use the extra space at the boot that is separated from the cabin.

We can’t really see inside but we are sure the law enforcement’s BMW will get extra gear including a police radio and an additional screen. The car will also benefit from the BMW Operating System 8 in the updated digital cockpit that will be introduced by the facelift. Our spy photographers suggest that besides the additional equipment, the police car might come with a stiffer suspension setup and power upgrades compared to the civilian versions. If that’s the case, this will make it quicker and more agile in the event of a pursuit, giving the upper hand to the police.
