As part of perhaps the most anticipated debuts of the 2018 Paris Motor Show, BMW has released an official image of the upcoming 3 Series, along with Tweeted images depicting what seems to be an M Sport derivative wearing Michelin rubber.

The 3 Series reveal will take place alongside the production-ready all-new BMW Z4, 8 Series coupe, X5 and BMW M5 Competition (which CAR acting editor Terence Steenkamp has already driven).

The below video further depicts the assembly process of the the seventh-generation 3 Series at its Dingofling assembly plant, emphasising the quality of the firms manufacturing standards.
