Please make it happen, BMW.
We're still not sure if it will ever happen, but a recent trademark filed by BMW got our hopes up that the automaker is planning to put an M7 into production. The news came as a surprise, since the automaker previously told us there was no need for an M7 when we already have the beastly M760i with 601 horsepower on tap. To whet our appetite, AscarissDesign has produced a render to show what a BMW M7 could look like. It's based on an old render, with changes including a new M5 bumper, new side vent, and a modified roof.
It's also been given new grille inserts and a slightly modified side mirror. Whether it will ever become a reality is questionable though. The trademark file is by no means confirmation that BMW will build a full fat M version of the 7 Series. After all, an M7 might be hard to justify with the M8 Gran Coupe now confirmed. BMW also already has the M760i to fight the Audi S8 and Mercedes-AMG S63, which can accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before topping out at 155 mph. That top speed can also be increased to 186 mph with the limiter lifted. The M760i already offers supercar performance in a luxury sedan, but we know it isn't reaching its potential.
In the Rolls-Royce Wraith, the same twin-turbo V12 is tuned to produce 625 horsepower, while in the Dawn it has 605 lb-ft of torque compared to the M760i's 590 lb-ft. Time will ultimately tell if a BMW M7 gets the green light for production, but at least we can now visualize it thanks to this render. Please make it happen, BMW.
