We’ve now added a video of the Yas Marina Blue F80 M3!
We reveal to you the F80 M3 in production form! This M3 wears the Yas Marina Blue Metallic color with carbon fiber roof and was spotted during an official commercial filming session.
Seeing the F80 M3 in Yas Marina Blue for an official commercial shoot also indicates that this may be the launch color for M3 marketing material and for when it makes its debut at the 2014 Detroit auto show in January.

Now watch the F82 M4 Coupe continue with some final testing on the Nurburgring.
The M4 will not hit dealers until next Summer, but the rumor mill is already churning for a lightweight track model.
Carsales claims BMW M sources have hinted at a lightweight track focused M4 coming in 2016 as part of the celebrations for BMW’s 100th birthday.

BMW M will attempt to achieve this weight by expanding the use of carbon fiber from the current areas (roof, trunk, drive shaft, strut brace) to include the hood and front wings, while also switching the steel doors to aluminum construction.
