2020 BMW M3 G80 Makes Early Debut In…Photoshop

Now that the all-new 2019 BMW 3 Series is out in the open, independent designers are envisioning other body styles and versions that use the premium sedan as a base.
We’ve already seen the 4 Series Coupe rendered with G20 3 Series sedan styling cues, as well as the M3. However, the set of CGIs envisioning the next-generation performance sedan didn’t take into account the batch of M Performance Parts BMW launched at the Paris Auto Show.

So here’s a new set of renderings courtesy of Nikita Aksyonov that show what the 2020 BMW M3 G80 will most likely look like. While clearly based on the 3 Series with M Performance Parts, it ups the ante by adding an assortment of features typical of full-blown BMW M cars.

Those include the vented front fenders, the BMW M wheels, carbon fiber roof and quad exhausts. The renderings also show the car in a typical blue BMW M color.

Chances are this interpretation is quite close to what the real BMW M3 G80 will look like when it launches in late 2019-early 2020. However, the headlights might turn out to be sourced from the upcoming 4 Series as it’s the case with the current M3. As with the new 3 Series it will be based on, the new M3 will use the same CLAR architecture benefiting from a significant weight reduction even before BMW M begins to fit lighter parts.

The sports sedan is expected to use a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six cylinder engine with almost 500 hp in basic guise. Since that’s what the current M4 GTS makes, we should expect the M3 G80 to deliver similar if not slightly improved performance specs.

The M4 GTS goes from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph) with the standard-fit M Driver’s Package. Rumor has it BMW will also offer the M xDrive AWD system from the M5 as an option.

    No way it would keep the regular m sport bumper and it would have wider fenders for the wider wheels not to mention it’s missing the M mirrors. Not much done really that I can see.
