2021 BMW M3 spied with less camouflage

The next-generation BMW M3 sedan has been spied during testing on public roads in Europe. Compared to earlier prototypes, this latest car has no false panels covering the headlights. Rather than using the notched units present on the 3 Series sedan and wagon, the M3's seem awfully similar to ones spied on 4 Series prototypes. In a leaked photo, the new 4 Series sports a tall and narrow double-kidney grille, like the one on the Concept 4 coupe at the Frankfurt motor show.
