There’s by no means been a BMW M7. Which is form of ridiculous when you concentrate on it. BMW sells M SUVs that weigh as a lot as buildings, so why no M7? No matter what foolish cause executives will give you, there is no such thing as a BMW M7. Nevertheless, there’s going to be a BMW i7 M70 and it’s going to be probably the most highly effective 7 Sequence mannequin in historical past. Might this camouflaged take a look at mule be that upcoming i7 M70?

On this latest spy video, we get a take a look at a closely camouflaged BMW i7 take a look at mule that could possibly be the upcoming high-performance mannequin. Admittedly, with all the camouflage it’s laborious to inform what kind of  i7 this take a look at mule is. So it might simply be a normal i7 xDrive60. Nevertheless, its wheels are totally different than what we’ve see from the i7 to this point.

As an alternative of the aerodynamic wheels of the present i7, the take a look at mule in these photographs wears far sportier trying wheels. These sportier wheels would clearly point out a sportier mannequin and the sportiest upcoming i7 mannequin is the M70. The one different element that we are able to see via the camo is that it appears to be carrying Aventurine Crimson paint.

The BMW i7 M70 goes to be a monster of a machine. It’s going to pack twin electrical motors, pumping out 660 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque (1,000 Nm). The present BMW i7 xDrive60 makes 536 horsepower and 549 lb-ft of torque and it’s in a position to get from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Whereas that isn’t anyplace close to as quick as one thing like a Tesla Mannequin S Plaid, it’s nonetheless a lot fast. So think about what a 660 horsepower i7 M70 can do. We might see that point drop into the three.5 seconds vary, which might make it the quickest 7 Sequence of all time.

BMW is engaged on a quad-motor setup, which can clearly be much more highly effective than any of its present dual-motor setups. Might BMW finally use that powertrain within the i7 and make a correct M Division model? That’s only a pipe dream at this level however it’s one value holding on to.
