BMW M7 is comming?



anyway, since Mercedes Benz came up with S600 V12 TT, M7 sounds like a real deal. Here waht I found on Car Spies.

Dear 001,

As your website often reports - the 7-series is a disappointment in styling, quality, and such, but the boys in Bavaria have a super comeback planned for their 7 series - which no one complains how it drives…

I have heard the following in the backyards of bmw dealerships all thoughout the southeast and friends have heard in the midwest - it has also been said to be seen on the roads of germany out and about

Here’s how the tale goes:

The front end on the confirmed production m7 will have an electronic retracting spoiler system -in carbon fiber - this system will allow the m7 to reach excess speeds of 180 with a still firm luxurious ride – there will also be a new rear differential system where the there is a secondary transmission giving the rear of the car different ratios as needed - the transmission will be a newly exotic yet unconfirmed technology- the engine will be bored v12 of 7.2 liters with 710 hp minimum - vanos generation 3 will show up -the car will also use a less aggressive electronic suspension control system - in favor of even more extensive mechanics including additional control arms with beefy aluminum components hand forged and even hollowed where viable - the brakes will feature 6 - 8 piston calipers in front and probably quad in back - the car looks very low - so low that some of the side skirts were actually shaved according to rumor - AND perhaps quite humorous is the fully redesigned rear end of this car. It looks unlike the rest of the 7 series lineup instead using a very elegant rendition of the new 5 series back with some elements from the hapless current design to form a stronger new one – trunk space was sacrificed a bit - but who cares - the front end - with the active spoiler will reflect the current m5

IN SHORT: the M7 will redefine super sedan surely and maybe the overall image of the entire 7-series lineup

I can see this being a potential lemans car.
i wonder how it's going to look, and how it'd look with an IMSA body kit =)
