All-new BMW M3 caught undisguised

Here’s the upcoming BMW M3 codenamed G80. Don’t call it the G20 because BMW has stopped giving their M models the same codenames as their regular counterpart since the previous F generation (F80 vs F30).

From the sneaky shot, we can see the flared wheel fenders as per BMW’s tradition for M models. There’s also a carbon fiber-esque spoiler, body-coloured rear diffuser and the signature quad exhaust tips.
