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.
Regarded as the most innovative sedan in the luxury segment, the BMW 7-Series won’t stay silent and is raring to defend its status. Its newest iteration has fused – in a well-balanced manner – luxury, comfort, elegance and sportiness as well as refinement and power. It aims to take things to a whole new level and highlight its leadership position by providing more product substance.
The latest iteration of BMW’s flagship now boasts of new headlights employing LED technology, improved ride comfort, an upgraded interior and optimized soundproofing. In addition, the new BMW 7-Series could be availed with a wide array of optional equipment and innovative safety technology.
Of course, the new BMW 7-Series is available with any of the new or optimized drive systems that set new standards in terms of performance and efficiency. These drives include the second-generation BMW ActiveHybrid 7 as well as the most powerful six-cylinder in-line diesel engine in the world.
Aside from leading its class in terms of innovative vehicle technologies, the new BMW 7-Series also boasts of a distinctive aesthetic appeal that allows it to stand out from its rivals. Thus, the new BMW 7-Series could be considered as a personification of sporty elegance and superb driving experience in the luxury sedan segment. This dynamism and stylishness of the new BMW 7-Series is thanks to a number of new design elements both on the front and rear. The new BMW 7-Series is around as long and as wide as its predecessor. However, it is around 8 mm shorter, allowing its sweeping lines to further underline its dynamic proportions.
