There’s little to go on but one thing seems unanimous: The new BMW M3’s rear diffuser cannot be body colour.
We’ve seen many spy-shots of the new 2021 G80 BMW M3 in the last few months but this is the first time we see an uncovered or un-camouflaged portion of one of the most storied and once desirable sport saloons in the world.
Most will agree than the latest generation G20 BMW 3 Series is an attractive car. For the moment, it has evaded BMW’s recent tendency of slapping monstrous kidney grilles on everything that leaves one of their assembly lines. The posted picture depicts a now-familiar 3 Series rear end with its lovely taillights but what’s also visible are the seriously flared wheel arches and the subject of most of the comments surrounding the picture.
Nearly everyone, including we, think that the picture posted by British BMW specialized tuning firm Evolve Automotive shows one major flaw: the body-coloured rear diffuser looks ridiculous painted in the body colour. The whole of the rear-end seems tall and narrow, exactly what no one wants their M3 to look like.
As a reminder, the 2021 G80 BMW M3 will be powered by a twin-turbocharged inline-6 cylinder engine with over 500-horsepower and be available with a 6-speed manual and AWD, but not necessarily all together. It is expected to arrive sometime next year. For the moment, we await its official unveiling soon.
