Another day and rumors around future BMW models. If yesterday the headlines were kept by the rumored 135i Supersport model, today we have an even more fascinating story to share.

The folks over at MotorAuthority posted a few spy shots of a BMW M3 Coupe with race car elements. Back in July, the new head of M Division, Dr. Kay Segler, hinted on a street-version of the current M3 GT4 racecar. In May, the BMW M3 GT4 made its debut at the legendary Nurburging endurance race.

These latest spy photos reveal some racing elements: front bumper with larger air intakes and rear wing.

Now here is where it gets more interesting. Some websites are reporting that the car seen in these photos is also testing the KERS system that will be implemented in the new M5 as well. So, are we really looking at the GT4 or an upgrade to the M3 Coupe?

This is definitely a story to keep an eye on and we’re hoping to hear more soon.
