Spy photographers recently captured a refreshed 2025 BMW M3 testing out on public roads. Upon release, the German super sedan will continue to serve as a rival to the track-capable Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.
Spied in Germany, this prototype features heavy camouflage on the front fascia, indicating that the exterior design of the front end of the upcoming 2025 M3 will be revised. Interestingly, the side- and rear-profile of the luxury sedan appears to be largely the same as the current 2024 model.
However, that’s not to say that these areas will be a complete carryover from the 2024 M3. It’s possible that BMW may introduce new taillight graphics and the likes to help jazz up the refreshed Beamer.
Also pictured here are enormous brake calipers, black wheels, and Michelin tires.
On the inside, there appears to be a camouflage blanket covering the dashboard. This is certainly peculiar, as the M3 received the 3 Series line’s new curved display as well as other dashboard, center console and trim changes for the 2023 model year.
Although further details on the upcoming 2025 BMW M3 are few and far between, it’s expected to enter production in July 2024.
As previously mentioned, a revised M3 would square up against the CT5-V Blackwing track monster. Looking forward, the Cadillac CT5 lineup, which includes the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing, will likely receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2025 or possibly 2024.5 model year. Although General Motors has been mute as to what updates the super sedan will boast, it’s widely expected to feature a restyled front fascia with new lighting signatures.
Under the hood, the powertrain options for the refreshed CT5 are expected to remain largely the same, which includes the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at either 335 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque or 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque depending on tune, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque.
In regard to structure, the Cadillac CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan for all markets except for China, where the luxury sedan is produced at the GM Cadillac Jinqiao plant in Shanghai.
