Next Gen BMW M3 G80 prototype breaks cover!

COMMENTS

And here we go... we share with you spy photos of the G80 M3 prototype!

Here is the latest G80 M3 advanced info (as of February 2019) from trusty BIMMERPOST member ynguldyn:
  • Starts production in 2020 (more likely later in the year).
  • Three performance levels: 444hp (Pure), 475hp ("base"), and 500hp (Competition).
  • Some versions will have RWD, others xDrive; both manual and automatic transmissions will be available. The reports that it will be Pure+manual+RWD, base+auto+xDrive, and Competition+auto+xDrive seem plausible but I don't yet want to claim that no other combos will be available.
  • Pure and base will have 18" front and 19" rear wheels; Competition will have 19"/20" as standard (optional on the other models).
  • Standard equipment for all models will include M diff, adaptive suspension, M seats, Live dashboard.
  • Optional equipment will be pretty much the same as the regular G20, with the notable additions of carbon ceramic brakes (possibly not available on Pure), carbon bucket seats (likely not in the U.S.) and of course Merino leather, including full leather interiors.


Updated February 6, 2019

The G80 M3 drops some camouflage. However, it still does not feature certain M parts (carbon fiber roof, M mirrors, side skirts, hood bump), which we'll surely see on later prototypes. Check out how much wider those fenders are than the standard G20 3 Series!

Updated October 9, 2018

The G80 M3 prototype drops some camouflage as it was spotted today at the Nurburgring. At its current testing stage, it's yet to be fitted with many of its expected M bits - carbon fiber roof, M mirrors, side skirts, hood bump. The prototype can be seen riding on Pirelli P Zero tires (285/30/20 rear).

The G80 M3 has finally hit the Nurburgring and the test drivers definitely weren't taking it easy on the G80 for its first time out.

It's a good sign we're seeing it this early. Perhaps a launch in 2020 is indeed possible.

I hope those exhaust tips are there just for the sake of it, they are really small, something I hate about M cars.

Will grab my popcorn as soon as the first video with sound comes out.

Indeed front fenders are fat. Nice. I think the G20 as a whole will look very good, even more this M3. Let's see if they can work out this time around sound and grip from the get go, no CP bullshit.

It does not start production until November 2018, so it's still nearly a year away. An official unveiling of some kind should happen near that time - in the first half of autumn of 2018.

Lmao diaper is the most fitting word I've ever heard used to describe that look.

Haven't been so excited to see a mule in years. 6MT standard is fantastic news, 2020 might be the year to upgrade
