BMW is testing an updated version of the most powerful M3

July 20, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Journalists were able to capture a camouflaged prototype of the updated BMW M3 sedan. The premiere of new items is expected in September this year.

According to those “spy” photos that came to our editorial office a couple of minutes ago, the updated version of the high-performance BMW M3 sedan will receive the same huge false radiator grille (branded “nostrils”) as the M4 coupe.

It seems that the prototype seen had a completely production body and optics. Despite the abundance of camouflage, the camouflage is actually quite subtle – looking closely, we can see almost all the details of the updated exterior. From muscular air intakes and wheel arches to a spoiler lip on the boot lid and an exhaust system with four tailpipes.

It’s hard to say if we’re looking at the rear-wheel drive sedan version or the xDrive (all-wheel drive) model.

It is known that BMW will offer the updated M3 sedan, equipped with a manual transmission, only in the rear-wheel-drive configuration (RWD), but in the case of the all-wheel drive version of the novelty, you will get exclusively all-wheel drive. Recent reports from our foreign colleagues say that the rear-wheel drive versions of the M3 will first appear on sale, and only then the xDrive version.

BMW press service has already released teaser images of the updated M3 sedan and M4 coupe – the official debut of these cars is scheduled for September.

New versions of the high-performance M3 and M4 in the even more powerful Competition version will boast 510 hp. The torque will be at 813 Nm.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that BMW introduced the anniversary series of GS motorcycles. The renowned BMW GS motorcycle range celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Recall that the history of this family of bikes began back in 1980 with the advent of the BMW R80GS.
