Spy Shots—BMW Unleashes the Porsche-Whipping M7

BMW M7   Brenda Priddy and her network of spy shooters caught what she says is the next BMW M7, equipped with an M-style bumper that includes large air intake openings underneath the lamp units. Also up front, Priddy says BMW will fit the new M with an aluminum hood for weight savings and improved handling.

Under that hood, Priddy says to expect the dual-turbo V8 used in the current X6 or perhaps 5.0L V10 from the M5 and M6. Either motor should be good for 550-600 hp, a marked upgrade from the 407 hp currently offered in the 750i, as well as the 507-hp unit powering the Alpina B7. It should also put down more power than the Porsche Panamera.
