2020 BMW M3 Renderings Could Trick Some Into Thinking It’s The Real Deal

The sixth generation BMW 3-Series turns 7 this year, but its replacement is almost ready, and will say hello to the world from the 2018 Paris Auto Show floor, early next week.

BMW has already started the teasing game, partially revealing what appears to be the M340i version of the car, which should be good for at least 360 hp and 370 lb-ft (501 Nm) of torque, from a 3.0-liter inline six-banger.

This will be the range-topping version of the premium compact sedan, until the M3 breaks cover next year. The Mercedes-AMG C63 rival will sit on the same CLAR platform as the standard 3-Series models, benefitting from a significant weight reduction, and is expected to use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six engine developing more than 460 horses.

The M3 CS version of the F80 generation is good for 460 PS (454 hp / 339 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, by comparison. So thanks to the weight saving measures, extra power, and other work, the new BMW M3 will be quicker to 100 km/h (62 mph), probably needing 3.7-3.8 seconds to get there.

While nobody outside Munich knows what it looks like exactly, one rendering artist gave it a shot at imagining the styling of the super sedan. In the digital renders, Aksyonov Nikita has combined the headlights of the teased 3-Series model, with a sporty body kit and lots of carbon fiber parts.

The car has an M3 CS vibe, but unlike the latter, it has dual exhaust tips at the back, just like the scooped prototypes.
