BMW M7 Sports Saloon Speculatively Rendered

|

If you take a look at BMW's current range of models, the closest thing you can get to a high-performance 7-Series model is the 540hp Alpina B7, which was not only created with the blessings of the Bavarian automaker (like all Alpina models), but in some countries, including the U.S., it’s also distributed by BMW itself.

While the idea of an M7 performance saloon has crossed the minds of BMW's M division more than once, it has yet to be realized, perhaps in part due to the fact that the M5 has grown considerably in size over the years, while there's also the new M6 Gran Coupe.

We're not here to answer the question if BMW actually needs an M7 (though, you're free to tell us your opinion in the comments below), but to share a rendering made by Auto Projeções, which we think is pretty close to what a performance version of the F01 7-Series would look like.

The speculative take on the M7 F01 rides on a lowered suspension and features all the trademark styling cues of an M model, from the wheels to the front bumper, and from the side skirts to the carbon fiber roof.

I personally think that the next generation 7 series might sport an M variant.

As a 740 Il owner I would love to see it happen. I think the main concern is can it be tamed . The car is a lot to handle without all the extra power and do the people that typically own 7's put the vehicles through it's paces to make it worthwhile.

Mercedes has been raking in the dough with not one but two fire breathing AMG versions for years, and it all gets sold. BMW is missing out. Produce limited numbers and call it good already BMW.

The CEO of BMW hates performance cars and doesn't really care for the M division and it shows. They really need to get rid of him. A high revving V-12 or turbo V-12 with hydraulic steering would be nice.

If what you are saying is true, then that is really sad. Consider this: the current 760's V12 produces about 540hp, not that far off from the M5's 560hp. I'd say pair the same turbos from the M5 to the 760's V12 and I bet 600hp would be possible.
