Is there a future for a BMW M7?

The top brass from Munich have officially shot down any possibility for a future BMW 7-Series wearing an M badge. That role of a high performance limousine has traditionally been left to Alpina. But apparently, just the other day, spy photographers caught this stretched Bimmer that reportedly "really seems like an M version of the 7-Series." So the question is, what was it?

BMW representatives have said that the M image doesn’t fit in a limousine model, but just a short while ago, they said the same thing about the X5 SUV, a vehicle that is now part of their lineup . So, what’s the true story behind this camouflaged 7-Series.

A closer look at the prototype seen in the photo reveals plenty of M characteristics; like the larger big mouth front bumper and what could be a hood made from lightweight aluminum. If this is the case, and there is going to be an M7, it will most likely be powered by the same twin-turbo eight cylinder found in the BMW X6 M , with an expected output somewhere between 500 and 550 HP.

yes ther r going to make a m7 and its going to be hot.

I love the B7 hopefully BMW can make there M7 if they were to make it better than the B7 performance wise

I think that it would be great to have two best lines of BMW in one car. The M image of and the 7 series together in one unit would surely be great. But aside from the possible good looks, I think that it is also proper to pay attention to the specs of the cars. A range of 500 to 550 hp is sounds good in my garage.

The five generations of BMW 7 series have been the flagship of this German car manufacturer. I think it would be impossible for BMW to quit on the said series. The changes must be due to their efforts to improve the quality of looks in this beauty.
