We have learned that BMW is potentially considering an M7. Why? The recent sightings of the Audi S8 testing and the rumor of it getting an uprated version of the RS6's V10 Twin Turbo with over 600 hp have BMW considering the idea.
BMW already has a V12 Twin Turbo in the 760 which puts out 535 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque using very small turbos. If this motor was mated with the X5/X6 M turbochargers it would result in a devastatingly powerful vehicle which would be more than an answer to the S8 and finally give BMW a direct rival to the S-Class AMG's. Due to the torque, the automatic transmission from the X5 and X6 M would be used. What else is interesting? The M7 would potentially be available in AWD.
Engine: Turbo V12 with M Twin Scroll Turbo Technology
Power: 650-700 hp @ 5200 rpm
Torque: 680-700 lb-ft @ 1800 rpm
Transmission: M Six Speed Sport Automatic Transmisison
Will it happen? Probably not, such a vehicle would be extremely expensive although this has never stopped Mercedes or Audi. If Audi continues to put pressure on BMW especially by testing the S8 and RS7 with uprated ...byPublished on 05-02-2010 12:20 PM

We know the F10 M5 is coming and will be revealed this year most likely at the Paris Autoshow. There has been no word on the M6 and rumors have been floating around that BMW will not do an M6 in favor of a mid-engine car based on the Vision Efficient Dynamics concept.
The new 6 series is obviously coming and it makes little sense to us that an M6 would not be soon to follow. The previous generation M6 shared the M5's drivetrain just as the new M6 would be likely to. Too much development cost has been poured into the M5 to not take advantage of it in an M6. With M SUV's now and M branding ever expanding, an M6 will likely be coming soon sharing many similarities with the soon to be launched M5.
What would the new M6 be?
- Same Dual Clutch Transmission as M5
- Same S63B44 Twin Turbo V8 putting out 578 horsepower and 530 pound-feed of torque.
The differences would be similar to the previous M5 and M6 with the M6 being slightly lighter at around 100 pounds with a lower center of gravity for better handling and a carbon roof.
