In the event any of you have been still holding your breath for a true M variant of the full-sized luxobarge, the 7-Series, a Portuguese blog has been able to render what they think a pure BMW M7 could look like.

Mind you, there have been rumors circulating that the next generation BMW 7-Series could see a variant being put through the M-Division finishing school, since last year.  Even BMW of North America’s CEO has been reportedly pushing for one. Though the rumor said that this possible M variant would take the form of an “M-Sport” 7-Series, rather than a truly bonafide M7, called the “M770i xDrive,” which would also indicate the use of all-wheel drive.

Under the hood could sit a newly updated twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 good for 482hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Those aren’t exactly mind-boggling numbers, but the rumor said that the focus would also be on significantly lowering the 7-Series’ weight to improve performance, should this actually happen.

Styling? Well, I have to say, this artist did a very nice job of “M-ifying” the current generation 7-Series. Now would they do it? Sure, it would be fairly interesting to see what BMW M’s performance house could do with the 7-Series considering Audi has soldiered on with the S8, Mercedes-Benz with the S-Class AMG, and Jaguar with the recently reintroduced Jaguar XJR. Porsche is now in the game, Lexus at least introduced the F-Sport LS, so I think it’s about time BMW took a crack at it, despite it being against their whole idea of agile automobiles—a 7-Series, being the leviathan it is, isn’t really supposed to be agile. But BMW have pulled it off by making the 7-Series feel smaller. So it’s a toss up for me…

    BMW seem content to allow Mercedes AMG, Audi “S” and Jaguar XJR take all the sales in that sector. Even Lexus may be getting in on the game with a warmer LS version.
