M division engineering boss Albert Biermann wants a BMW M7

Article by Christian A., on December 16, 2013

Everybody dreams at an BMW M7, even M division engineering boss Albert Biermann. In a recent interview with Autocar, Biermann admitted that he wants to create such a model and this would top company’s lineup as a flagship performance saloon. Although Alpina offers the B7, which is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine rated at 533 hp, Biermann says that an M7 would be quite different.

The bad news is that the M7 is not in BMW’s product plan at present as the M division concentrates on other projects, such as investigation of four-wheel drive for the next-generation M5 and M6, as well as a possible M version of the 3-Series GT.

And the bad news continue: BMW is not planning to extend its lineup of high-performance SUVs with M versions of the X3 or the X4 to join the X5 M and X6 M. The good news is that BMW will develop M Performance versions of these vehicles, similar to Audi, which differentiates S and RS models.
