Possible M7 Spyshots

After a couple of near-misses WCF can finally reveal the first spy pictures of the upcoming BMW M7... or whatever BMW decides to call it. Looking like the sportiest non-Alpina 7 Series variant to date, telltale details include the power bulge on the bonnet similar to the one found on the M3, an aggressively styled pseudo M-style front bumper with gaping air intakes plus sport wheels with huge brakes just beneath. Since the camouflage is so minimal hopefully the car will not stay such a big secret for much longer.

If in fact the M7, it will represent the ultimate BMW super saloon. It will target cars like the Mercedes-Benz duo, the S63 AMG and the S65 AMG, as well as the upcoming Jaguar XJR. Currently the most powerful 7 Series in the lot is the twin turbo 760i which has a 6.0-litre V12 engine. Maximum power is rated at 400kW (544hp) and peak torque is 750Nm made between 1,500rpm and 5,000rpm.

The assumption is that the M7 will eclipse these figures but whether it goes beyond the 450kW (612hp) made by the S65 AMG remains to be officially confirmed. What we can say with a fair degree of confidence is that the M7 will become the most powerful mass series BMW car ever built and one of its quickest in the current range.

Actually it is an M, and I'll be happier than hell to see it hit our showroom.
1990 735iL under construction.....

Those wide exhaust outlets almost still look like quad exhausts, but all the original M's didn't have them, so I don't see what the big deal is.

Definitely the 760iL

M7 (if there will ever be one), will have aerodynamic mirrors, quad exhausts, etc., etc...

even the X5/X6 - ///M has quad exhausts.

I don't think it's the 760, BMW already unveiled it, it looks like this:

Note the wider chrome grill. The car posted above, if not the M, is most likely the facelift.

Didn't anyone notice the powerbulge on the hood? That may be a clear sign it's M. The rear bumpers they may have kept stock for camouflage reasons.
