The G80-generation BMW M3 is set to look like no other M-branded car before it thanks to the adoption of a radical new front fascia.
2021 BMW M3 Spy Shots
Recent spy shots of the new M3 have indicated that it will feature larger and taller kidney grilles than the basic 3-Series models. These new kidney grilles will be somewhat similar in shape to those previewed by the BMW Vision Dynamics Concept and will feature vibrant horizontal slats.
Armed with the current spy shots, Bimmer Post set about rendering what the new 3-Series will look like, and this is the end product. We’re unsure what to believe.
The two huge kidneys of the new M3 are what right away catches your eyes and certainly help to differentiate the car from lower 3-Series models. Besides, the grilles are also a little bit more aggressive than those used by the similarity the 7-Series and X7. We still believe they look awful, nevertheless.
The car does feature several redeeming qualities which we do approve of. For example, the rear features a beefed-up bumper and a little trunk lid lip spoiler. There are also a set of sharp silver and black wheels, a carbon fiber rear bumper insert, quad tailpipes, and a carbon-fiber roof. Headlights similar to those of the 8-Series are likewise a nice touch.
