This is Max ReisbÃ¶ck. He’s a former BMW engineer and he created the first ever BMW station wagon, based on a wrecked E30 3 Series saloon. The reason for his handiwork? So he could take his daughter’s tricycle on family holidays.
It’s actually a very cool story and without it we may never have seen the 3 Series Touring. Thankfully, BMW has seen fit to document Max’s story with this short video.
We love Euro estate cars because they’re super-cool. And now we love Max ReisbÃ¶ck, because he’s cool too.
