A rendering of the BMW M7, as imagined by Auto Projeções, has come out. It’s quite a bit late for this to be an M variant of the existing BMW 7-Series. But there may be revisions for the new model that’s set to arrive in dealerships either in late 2015 or in 2016. This is an expected move as the M lineup has significantly grown over the past few years.
Last year, there was a rumor that hinted that there will be an M770i xDrive that will be powered by a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo, with an output of 482 HP (354 kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque. This output isn’t exactly striking but according to reports, there may be an agile high-performance luxury sedan as the result of prioritizing lightweight construction, a bespoke 8-speed automatic gearbox and enhancing handling.
The rendering offers plenty of styling elements from existing M models, beginning with the alloys and front bumper, together with the muscular side skirts, lowered sports suspension and a carbon fiber roof.
