2021 BMW M3 spied with manual gearstick

The 2021 BMW M3 has been snapped in greater detail during testing, revealing its interior and more about its aggressive exterior makeover. Like the last car we spotted, this M3 isn't wearing any fake body panels. That means we can see it wears headlights similar to what we're expecting from the 4 Series, instead of the notched units that feature on the non-M 3 Series...

2021 BMW M3 spied with less camouflage

Hardcore manuals coming for 2021 M3 and M4, M5 to remain auto only

As the sole carmaker to continue offering a manual option in the premium mid-sized high-performance segment, BMW M is bucking tradition and looking to position the 'stick shift' format as a flagship option in the now-delayed 2021 M3 and M4 range. “The manual stick shift is not an entry proposition any more,” says the boss of BMW M Division, Markus Flasch...

The next-generation M-cars were due to be in European showrooms by the end of this year, with an Australian introduction some time in 2020 – but both release dates have been pushed back by at least 12 months...

2020 BMW M3 leaked

BMW's upcoming 3 Series flagship, the hotted-up 2020 M3, has been snapped on the production line. Finished in Melbourne Red, the car has a set of aggressively-flared arches and a subtle carbon-fibre lip spoiler on the bootlid.

2020 BMW M3 spied with large grille

The next-generation BMW M3 sedan has been spied on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Unlike early prototypes, BMW has taken away the temporary mesh trim protecting the grille.
