Car Magazine states this is exactly what the F80 / F30 M3 will look like - Renderings based on visit to styling studio
Car Magazine makes pretty bold claims and they do so to get attention and sell magazines. They tend to go more the National Enquirer route especially with things like these renderings. They did this before when the E92 M3 was coming out saying their pictures were 100% accurate but they were not 100% accurate. They were close enough though and based on BMW's recent styling language and concepts the real deal should not be far from this.
Is it exciting though? Sure, it looks better than an F30 3-Series it just feels like it is missing a hint of aggression. When the E46 M3 hit with its power dome in the hood it looked mean. When the E92 M3 was revealed the design evolved and it was more aggressive. This just feels a bit too mild.
We all just have to wait for the real deal, enjoy the renderings.
