2014 BMW M3 Sedan (F30) Spy Shots

Rumors of a probable triple-turbo 6-cylinder have been the headliner for the subsequent-era M3 (though we aren’t marketed on the thought) but reports have also indicated the new 2014 BMW M3 would drop the saloon model completely. These spy shots show up to refute that notion.

The photos display what seems to be to be a extremely sport edition of the up coming-gen 3-Collection (you can locate our spy pictures of the common 2013 3-Series right here), but with out the electrical power bulge located in the hood of the present M3. That bulge is what tends to make room for the screaming 4.-liter V-eight, & its absence tends to validate the subsequent M3 will be a 6-cylinder.

Electrical power estimates for the following-gen M Division turbo 6 array around the 450 hpr mark, with BMW’s attribute inline 6-cylinder layout a presented. Whether it will function two turbos (as we assume) or 3 (as rumored), it is explained to be all-new, relatively than an up to date version of the N54/N55 located in the current 3-Collection lineup.

Notable distinctions from the regular 2013 3-Sequence formerly spied contain a much more aggressive aerodynamics package, specifically at the front end, with much more substantial air intakes, probably to preserve the intercooler awesome and the brakes pleased. Tiny openings in the camouflage hint at LED fog lamps, whilst the acquainted BMW ring-shaped headlights can be evidently witnessed beneath their own strips of obscuring tape.

The hood is formed slightly in another way as effectively, without having the two creases witnessed in the past non-M prototypes. The new converging curves, very first seen on the 2012 6-Sequence, can also be noticed peeking out from beneath the camo.

At the sides of the car, we see flared wheel arches that make area for wider wheels, large brake discs within the wheels & a reduced aspect-sill aerodynamic/physical appearance addition. Shifting to the rear, split-quad exhaust shops are nestled at the bottom of the bumper, but handful of other particulars can be discerned, as even the tail lights are largely masked.

The following-era M3 ought to arrive in mid- or late- 2013, many months right after the 2013 3-Series’ debut in late 2012. We will provide you the latest spy pictures and particulars as we discover them.
