The somewhat mysterious F80 M3 LCI was spotted by an Autogespot photographer earlier this week. This is possibly one of the first glimpses of the new car coming out this summer, coinciding with the F30 3 Series LCI.
What gives it away that this is the new F80 are the tail lights, which has been seen on previous prototypes of the 3 Series LCI. Other characteristics like the rear profile, trunk cutline and roof height look more like the M3 Sedan, rather than the 2 Series Coupe.
M2 prototypes have not been seen with these unique tail lights, and M models normally do not receive LCI-type features. The 2016 M3 LCI begins production this July.
