BMW 7 Series M Sport - Click above for high-res image gallery

We're not sure where they came from, but official-looking images of the upcoming BMW 7 Series M Sport just popped up on the interwebs today. The car you see here is identical to the one we saw in spy photos just a few weeks ago. Since the M6 will reportedly remain the brand's top dog in terms of big performance cars, the 7 Series M Sport will be to the standard 7 Series what all M Sport models are. That is, it gets more aggressive fascias front and rear, unique wheels, an M steering wheel, M shifter and M footrest. Rumor also has it that the 7 Series M Sport will be powered by the brand's newly updated 3.0-liter, twin-turbo diesel engine producing 306 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. No, it's still not an M7, but if you want a lightning quick 7 Series, you can go buy an Alpina B7 Biturbo for now.

      standard engine is good enough
      no one i've seen in a 7 series has ever been trying to get to the cars limits

      now put than engine on the 1-series and BMW might be onto something - you know quiecker than the 135i with monster torque would be tons of fun

      Looks quite butch.

      I looked at the B7 link and just now realized what a huge improvement the new 7 interior is over the old one.

      Looks good.

        I wasn't too sure about them either but the more I look at it the more I think it provides a good contrast to the front of the car. Guess I'd have to see it in person to know for sure.

        mmmm, i'm not so sure about the chrome tusks... everything else looks pretty decent.

      Thansk Ricky!

      there will never be an M7... just a m sport visual package with maybe slightly updated suspension. Sometimes they get sportier seats, but I doubt the 7 will get those. There is an m sport version of almost every modern BMW.

        Never say never. Did you expect an M-badged X6 and X5?

      See in the first picture, the windshield, what is it that makes the windshield glass blue? Anyone know?

      It looks amazing.

      Speaking of the seven series, any ETA on the xDrive version yet? I keep hearing it's supposed to be out soon, but I haven't seen anything official yet. My brother is dying to get rid of one of his Suburbans and get his hands on a long wheelbase xDrive 7-series.

      Not bad not bad - much better than the old Bangled 7 series. I'd still take the Audi S8 over it though. Waiting to see what happens with the new A8 coming out in a few months.

      I spent an hour today playing with iDrive in a 750i... and I frankly can't imagine why you would want this car to be some super-powered monster. Its so techy-luxo that just the appearance of some sport would be fine.

      Though, if BMW wanted to add AWD the engine from the X6M then maybe it'd be hard to overlook...

        RE: Ricky

        I think that's pretty much what Zeke was saying. It's so good already, some sportier looking parts is all it needs.

        They are not turning this car into a super powered monster. They just slapped on a body kit and other interior bits. This is not an M7, it is a 7 series M sport.

      An M footrest? Who cares lol?
      • 5 Years Ago
      At long last, they add a decent sports model. The old car just had different wheels.

      I love it, especially that interior and the wheels, which appear to be those of the X6/X5M.

        What ever happened to the good old days when the M badge actually stood for something. I remember this great article about how, unlike AMG, the M badge would always stay true to it's racing heritage and how the designers would never compromise that focus by tricking out the 7 series or the X series. I guess that went away with the stock sheet metal the M designers threw away when they were going all crazy on the new M3.
