Earlier this month at the Frankfurt motor show BMW Concept 4 made to all visitors a lasting impression due to the large size of the “nostrils” grille, and for good reason, some are concerned that the next M3 will also be used the same design solution.
In a new spy video, filmed at the Nurburgring, we can see confirmation of our fears, as some of the prototypes had an unusually high camouflage at the location of the radiator grille. However, do not despair, because the other prototype with the license plate ending in “2479” – I think there is a normal front of a giant grille.
In addition to the new corporate design, “charged” M3 will be a big step forward compared to M340i. To M Performance, available on the world market for quite a long time, the novelty will be available with both rear and all-wheel drive. Not only that, but BMW has confirmed that the mechanical transmission is saved, which will attract a large audience.
These test mules that were discovered on the track at the Nurburgring, are carefully disguised. But you can hear the familiar sound of the powerplant is borrowed from the X3 M and X4 M. However, earlier the representatives of the brand said that the maximum capacity of S58 was not achieved. In other words, Tricorbraun motor can obtain a higher return than the 503 HP available in the aforementioned SUVs in modifications Competition.
To expand the model range of the M3, BMW plans to release a version of BMW M3 Pure (working title) exclusively with rear-wheel drive and six-speed ??mechanical gearbox with an electronic differential lock. This performance M3 will have around 450 HP of power compared to the 480 HP in the standard model and 510 HP in the modification Competition.
Have more affordable M3 “Pure” will also be a slightly different body, custom alloy wheels, exclusive color and some changes in the cabin.
Despite the fact that the car has repeatedly been seen on the tests, its debut in the near future should not wait. It is expected that the presentation of the BMW M3 will be held in 2020, and “charged” version with the prefix Competition in the title will debut only in 2021.
BMW is better to increase or decrease the “nostrils” in the next M3?
