Autobild’s latest issue brings back the old rumor of a BMW M7 being planned for the near future. The Germany magazine says an M model based on the new 7 Series will be unveiled in 2016 to compete with the likes of Audi S8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG.
The design will be based on new G11/G12 7 Series with large air intakes in the front apron, side skirts, a rear diffuser and exhaust system from the M5 and M6 Gran Coupe.
Over the last few years, our sources said the outgoing BMW CEO Dr. Norbert Reithofer has been opposing the idea of an M7, yet if the car arrives next year under the new CEO, the M7 would still be considered his creation. With the demand for high-end luxury vehicles being on the up-rise, the costly M7 could arrive at the right time for the Bavarians.
Price of the M7 is expected to be at about 140,000 euros.
