Bmw M770i xDrive a.k.a. M7 headed to North America

Article by Christian A., on July 16, 2012

Amid the clamor for the BMW M7 model, speculations have come out that the automaker has chosen a different approach and will be building a M770i xDrive. For several years, the 7-Series didn’t become a part of the M lineup because it is more of a luxury sedan than a performance model.

There are rumors that in 2015, the model will be added to BMW’s revamped 7-Series lineup and that it will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 475-hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Notably, the present 760Li features a V12 with 570-hp and 665 lb-ft of torque. Before you conclude that this can’t be right for this M Performance model, the M770i will be a lot lighter so it would be more agile than the 760Li.

Just like the other models with the M name, the M770i would be about 450 lbs lighter than its standard model counterparts as it will use plenty of carbon fiber on its roof, trunk, and hood. It also gets lightweight seats, carbon-ceramic brakes, thin-wall exhaust, and lightweight 20-inch wheels. It’s not the dream M7 model but it’s certainly an M model of some form for the 7-Series.

As BMW’s flagship model series boasts of a great and harmonious combination of elegance, sportiness, luxury, comfort as well as refined power and better product substance. With this great and innovative mix, the new BMW 7-Series is out to protect its status as one of the pioneering technological leaders in the luxury segment.

These elements could be seen on BMW 7-Series’ new LED headlights, enhanced ride comfort, improved and soundproofed cabin as well as a wide array of optional equipment and safety systems. In addition, the new BMW 7-Series comes with new and optimized drive systems. Available powertrains include a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and the second-generation of the carmaker’s ActiveHybrid 7 power unit.

In terms of visual charm and groundbreaking technology, the new BMW 7-Series could be considered as one of the best in the world. These are translated into a wonderful fusion of sportiness and elegance as well as luxury and dynamism. These are all affirmed by the stylish front and rear ends of the upgraded BMW 7-Series. Its dimensions have increased a bit however, its ride height has been lowered by 8 mm to ensure that the sedan’s sweeping lines are afforded with a dramatic design while highlighting the vehicle’s perfectly balanced proportions.

The profile of the BMW 7-Series is well-defined by features like the sedan’s long, broad bonnet that boasts of precise contour lines. In turn, these provide greater emphasis on the premium brand’s new BMW kidney which has chrome surrounds that now features nine slats. Previously, the chrome surround features 12 slats. The front end styling of BMW 7-Series is complemented by the sedan’s headlamps. When full-LED headlights are specified, the units feature elegant accent strip and the BMW corona rings.
