BMW had a Vatican II moment, where the holy leaders significantly updated the philosophy as well as principles of the religion to fit the modern era. People have accepted the changes that have been brought about in BMW’s brand in the past decade as the fundamental ones. The next gen 7 series provided by BMW stands out from rest of the models provided by the company. During the past, the executives of BMW did not release a high revving, hard core M version of 7 series. However, some of the alternatives such as the Alpina B7 as well as a 1980s 745i were authorized. However, the company did not sell the real artifact. Both Ludwig Willisch, the CEO of BMW USA as well as Matt Russell the product planner of the American M division have told us that they are waiting to see that it will happen for the next-gen 7. This model is set to arrive in about next three years.
Russell also explained that, initially the M idea of high-revving with relatively small-displacement engines will not work for the 7 series. However, with the help of the modern technology, the awe-inspiring twin-turbo V-8 to the active suspension system, M as well as BMW will be able to build an M7 that can be true to both the luxury needed for the top-of-the-line sedan of BMW and sporting promise of M brand.
According to the experts, the right M cars will roughly take at least five years to come in the market. However, you cannot expect to see the M7 until the earliest of 2016. If you are a 7er enthusiast, you will be able to enjoy the latest facelift made in the 7 series that comes with a 445-hp engine. However, by that time, the power output for the M’s V-8 program may exceed over 600 hp.
