BMW Motorsport has announced release of the much anticipated M7, to be built at the Regensberg plant near Munich as a concept.

The heavily massaged version of the recently introduced 760i sedan features a less restrictive exhaust, revised suspension compontry, and larger front and rear brakes.

At time of press, engine modifications have been limited to an additional 450cc of displacement, mild porting of cylinder heads and larger valves, but the most important gains are to be found in lightened internal components as well as re-mapping of the S70/4's direct injection and Double VANOS variable valve timing mechanism. BMW's head of engine development, Paul Rosche, is confident that final output figures will easily surpass the 376 kW (504 bhp) of the prototype vehicle tested at Nurburgring in December.

"The possibilities of the new Bosch engine management system combined with BMW's revolutionary direct injection system and Valvetronic intake control are limitless. In conjunction with the existing electronic throttle and and iDrive systems, we hope our customers will be able to fully exploit this vehicle's power to the fullest. Our target is currently 500 kW (536 bhp), which we should easily reach within a few months time," said Professor Rosche.

BMW's Chairman of the Board of Management, Joachim Milberg, hopes the M7, the first-ever upper luxury performance version from the Motorsport division, will be ready for its unveiling at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in September 2003.

Oh hell yeah. The thing is a BEAST!!!!! I'm starting to slang rock now so I can walk into the BMW dealership and slap down a brief case full of cash, hop into my M7, and leave a 100 foot patch of rubber on my way out.

Yo RumorsHG,

What’s the source of this info? The photo definitely looks like photochop, which leads me to believe the story is bullshit.

chuck, i think i got it from www.bmwworld.com but i seriosuly dont remember. On that note, this is mainly speculation, I dunno if it's true, the site could be lying. I just find it and post it here. You guys discuss it, we're all happy.

And yea, the pic is def. photoshopped, but that shouldn't lead you to believe that it's fake. What if I never posted a pic?

Which brings me back to my favourite complaint – when you post something from another website or magazine, please mention where it came from. That way a person can check out the source and make an informed decision as to whether something is legit or bullshit.

If Benz creates a AMG version of every car... so should BMW create a M car for the 7 series. It would be tite to have a 6 spd (all M cars must be stick) M7 that can bust a E.T. in the 13s. Big pimpin.
