Are BMW planning a new M7 model?
Rumours are circulating amongst car fans around the world which suggests that BMW could very well be toying with the idea of creating a new M7 model in the future. It goes without saying that the M range from the company is one of the most popular choices around the world when it comes to a sporty and powerful performing car. It is safe to say that the addition of a new M7 could very well make the range even bigger than it already is. Reports are suggesting that a new M7 could go head to head with some of the more powerful S Class models from rivals Mercedes Benz. No more is known about the car though and no truth to the news has been revealed by the German car firm. If it is true, we may not hear anything for a while but we hope for some truth to these rumours to be brought to the table sooner rather than later.
