600-horsepower BMW M7 coming in 2016?
German media outlets are reporting that BMW's long-rumored M-7 continues to be given the green-light for generation in the end. The the new-rodded 7-Series is going to be introduced in an important auto show in 2016.
Power for the M7 will come from an development of the next gen 760i's Rollsroyce-sourced 6.6-liter V-12 motor that will be tuned to turn out at least 600 ponies. The 1 2-cylinder will probably be bolted to an automatic transmission, but only at that point it is too soon to tell if the M-7 is going to be back- or all-wheel-drive. The excess power will soon be complemented with a sport exhaust method like the one seen about the M-5, a lowered and stiffened suspension and beefier brakes on all corners. Visually, the M7 will develop a deeper front fender fitted using a splitter and big air dams which will direct chilly air to the engine bay, side-skirts and an air diffuser outside back. Added carbon fiber parts can help in keeping weight in-check, while substantial multi-spoke alloy wheels will add a finishing touch to the trail-inspired appearance. The next gen 7-Series is going to be shown to the community next autumn in the Frankfurt Motor Show, and we would not be surprised to find the M7 introduction in a little under a year at the 2016 version of the Geneva Motor Display. If this is true, the sedan will go on-sale late next year using a base cost of around EUR140,000, a amount that converts to about $154,000.On-again, off-againBMW has formerly made it obvious that it it does not need to construct a M-7 because it considers the 7Series is also large to hit the trail and because tuner Alpina currently provides a better variant of the large sedan called B-7, but the firm seems to have changed its mind. The marketplace for an insanely strong limo is definitely there. Mercedes Benz offers two AMG-tuned versions of the S Class, Audi sells the S-8 and now Cadillac is believed to be contemplating developing a hobby-centered V-badged model of the new CT6. Read Source
