08 Oct Will the Malaysian Police use the BMW M3?
Recently, the image of a BMW M3 with Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) graphics was spread-some say that it is another escort vehicle for Istana use just like the Honda Civic Type R and also the Volvo S90 T5 before, right?
UPDATE: The infected BMW M3, X3 and Volkswagen Tiguan are indeed undergoing evaluation tests by PDRM. The initial news we made stated that it was a prop for the production of the film was told by BMW Malaysia itself, and we reported based on that information. However, because all parties involved have strict conditions not to disclose it may be the cause of this information confusion. Again, we apologize.
No, in fact the BMW M3 you see is a prop car for use in filming. This was confirmed by BMW Malaysia itself, but they did not reveal the title of the film. But we expect the M3 with the ‘Police High Performance’ graphics to probably appear in between two new films – Police Evo 3 or The Catcher.
However, the chances for it to star in The Catcher are higher as the film is said to be the film with the highest production cost in Malaysian history. According to a Pocket News report, the film will showcase the lifestyle and also car modification culture in Malaysia, produced with a budget of more than RM50 million.
More than 500 units of supercars are said to be in use throughout the filming of the film (also a world record-breaking figure), most of which belong to members of the Robotz Car Club. In a press conference on October 4, Robotz founder Datuk Seri Jeffrey Teoh said; “Supercars are loved by everyone, from any position and background.”
As supercar drivers, each of us at Robotz has always been inspired by the “Fast & Furious” movie franchise starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. So we hope and are proud if our film can emulate the excellence of the film, ”he explained.
Production of the film The Catcher will begin around 2022 and is expected to be completed in 2023. Clear? So please tell your neighbors and relatives that the BMW M3 is not a PDRM asset! – Adapted from Paultan.org
