Could BMW actually be planning an M7? This might just be the case after the more powerful Audi S8 was caught testing at the Nurburgring last month with all of its supercharged V8 muscle sprawling all over the track. The rumor of it receiving the RS6 ’s V10 Twin Turbo producing 600 HP may also be a reason BMW is battling back and forth with the idea of an M7.
So, is it in the cards? We think it should be. The BMW M7 could potentially have a Turbo V12 with M Twin Scroll Turbo Technology that boasts 650-700 hp at 5200 rpm and 680-700 lb-ft of torque at 1800 rpm. The engine will be mated to an M six speed sport automatic transmission.
The Mercedes S63 AMG and the supercharged Audi S8 might just be the push BMW needs to create the one car that could give these other ones a run for their money. Yes, it may be a little on the pricey side of the monetary scale, but if people want it bad enough, they will buy it. Wasn’t the Porsche Panamera on top of the Porsche sales charts last month? Come on BMW, if you build it, they will buy it.
