The driver lost control of the M3 and crashed into the right guide rail.

Driver is SAFE

PS - I love the fact that BMW is still testing the car so vigorously at the 'Ring while the car is so close to production

I'm glad they have retained the mini gear lever. Most M3 owners I know prefer using the gear lever over the paddles to shift.

For me, this is the ultimate M3. Simply because of the fact that nothing bearing proper mid-size sedan credentials like that should go that fast. But this thing does/will.

Default No ITBs...woah

Looks juicy....I see that the intake is missing the ITB ?? (for the first time ever)

Having a turbo probably renders it less effective..wonder if the turbo M5 also lost it

Thanks for sharing the pics, Karan! The car just looks perfekt and once launched, I'm sure it'd be the best looking BMW in their current lineup! How I wish some aftermarket manufacturer makes a F30 M3 bodykit for the regular F30s

Wow! That's a massively gorgeous looking car!

First I was like what a lovely 2 door coupe. Then, drooling further-on, I read somewhere "F80 M3". Lightning struck! "F80 is not F82. Also the coupe has a new name. Does it mean this is M3 and not the "M4"?? Scrolled up again and then did I notice its a 4 door sedan!

Well done BMW. The blue is just amazing and the blackened B pillar and windows make it look just like a coupe to a casual eye!

^ Just look at that stance & those muscular wheel arches (rear especially), given me a vision for my F30

Some M3 action in the upcoming movie. Think they used the pre-facelift version in the action sequences.

The F80 is already so expensive, I don't know what it will cost with the competition package!

On the other hand the M235i seems to be great value. I think i'll lease one sometime in 2018.

How's your 3 doing?
