2020 BMW M3 Caught Flaunting Body Kit, Production Lights, Huge Grille

BMW is, obviously, deeper in the development stage of the next generation M3, which should help explain why the latest prototype snapped by our spy photographers is a bit more revealing.

Beneath the camo, the sports sedan wears the production headlamps that flank what is expected to be a large kidney grille.Bulky fenders front and rear, larger side sills, production taillights, duck lid spoiler mounted on the boot, different rear bumper with diffuser and quad exhaust pipes plus large wheels will complete the look on the outside.

In the cabin, BMW’s M division will apply a few changes over the regular 3-Series that will include front sports seats, new steering wheel and model-specific upholstery and trims.

The revolution takes place beneath the skin, as this is the first-ever M3 to rock a rear-biased all-wheel drive system. The setup is similar to the one in the larger M5 and will include a manual transmission alongside the faster changing dual-clutch option.

Power will come from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six shared with the new X3 M and X4 M, which is capable of pushing out up to 503 HP in the Competition and 473 HP in the regular models.

The new generation M3 promises to be one of the best driver’s cars in the segment, but BMW could further spice things up with the rumored ‘Pure’ version. This one might ditch the M-tuned xDrive AWD system for the good old rear-wheel drive and get a stick shift only, thus catering to the needs of purists.
