Journalists once again captured a test prototype of the powerful Bavarian BMW M3 sedan. The official presentation of the car will take place in the middle of next year.

At the beginning of this month, at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, the Bavarian company BMW showed an interesting car called Concept 4. This car attracted a lot of attention because of the very, very large size of the branded false radiator grille, and in fact, because of this many are concerned that the new version of the “charged” M3 will also receive the same hefty “nostrils.” A new “spy” video, shot on the Nurburgring race track, reinforces these concerns, as some of the prototypes of the long-awaited new items had camouflage, precisely in place of the radiator grille.

Test versions of the novelty that were seen on the Nurburgring race track are heavily masked, but despite this, four exhaust pipes are usually visible, which are usually equipped with powerful M-versions of the usual brand models. Judging by the sound, under the hood of these cars is the same engine as the updated crossovers X3 M and X4 M.

According to BMW representatives, the maximum potential of the current S58 engine has not been achieved. In other words, the current inline six-cylinder twin-turbo engine can develop even more power than the 503 horsepower available in the aforementioned crossovers in the Competition versions. BMW M3 will present in mid-2020, as a sedan 2021 model year.

  The new M3 will also be available in the “light” version of Pure, exclusively with rear-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual with electronic differential lock. The basic model M3 will have approximately 450 hp, the regular version will receive 480 hp, and the more powerful Competition will be able to boast 510 horses.
