The Bmw M7 we never had

Article by Christian A., on March 26, 2013

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.

BMW prides itself in having the most innovative luxury sedan in the entire category. Now BMW seeks to galvanize its segment leadership with the all-new BMW 7-series. It’s hard to imagine the BMW 7-series not dominating competition given this car’s magnificence in luxury, design, and technology.

The new BMW 7-series is intended to be the flagship model among the luxury vehicles in the BMW fleet, and for good reason. The stylish design of the BMW 7-series accentuates a profile and exterior that exude grace and class. The 7-series has a bonnet that is long and broad which is highlighted by sharp contour lines that bring attention to the new kidney grille which extends forward. This new grille further brings attention to the BMW 7-series when it hits the road because the grille’s chrome surround has been made bigger and now comes with a new 9-slat arrangement.

The 7-series casts a large shadow over the rest of the field in the luxury sedan segment with its new full-LED headlights which complement the patented BMW corona rings and the accent strips. In terms of dimensions, the new BMW 7-series has seen only nominal changes, but it does have an eight-millimetre drop in height compared to the previous. What this slight decrease in height does is it expresses the sweeping lines and balance brought about by the BMW 7-series’s dynamic proportions. The 7-series offers both athletic elegance and world-class driving experience.

This is guaranteed by the technological and design superiority of the BMW 7-series that sets it apart from the rest of the field. This is seen in the optimized drive systems, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7, the soundproofed interior that has been majorly upgraded, and the most powerful in-line diesel six-cylinder engine in the world. All these have been incorporated in the BMW 7-series to make it live up to its reputation as the flagship model of BMW.
