The latest F80 M3 spotting gives us the best look yet at its newest revealed features — double slat kidney grilles and a double-bubble carbon fiber roof.

Both the F80 M3 and F82 M4 will continue BMW’s latest trend to fit M models with double slat kidney grilles with a model badge affixed. The M6 and M5 LCI all feature this design.

And multiple M3 prototypes have now been spied with a camouflaged top, indicating a carbon fiber roof – first in the U.S. and now in Germany. The closeup photos we’ve posted show that the carbon fiber roof will have a sporty double-bubble shape – like the F82 M4 prototypes and M6 Coupes / Gran Coupes. A lightweight CF roof will also help to lower the … CONTINUED

The F80 M3 has been spotted with a camouflaged roof. How is this significant? Well, its brother, the F82 M4 Coupe has often been spotted with a camouflaged roof (as well as an optional top with moonroof), which typically indicates the presence of a carbon fiber roof, but the F80 M3 Sedan has never been seen with a camouflaged top, until now.

This F80 M3 prototype was spotted by a BIMMERPOST member while it undergoes hot weather testing in Las Vegas (where it recently hit 117F degrees) and is accompanied by some F15 X5 M prototypes. Like the M4, this likely indicates a carbon fiber roof for the upcoming M3 – the first time any M3 Sedan will feature such a lightweight roof (the E92 M3 … CONTINUED
