    Up until the end of last year BMW was in the process of developing a brand new performance car positioned above the current 7-series flagship and destined to enter the premium four-door coupe segment. Then the global economic crisis hit and on the back of weak financial results BMW decided not to risk the launch of such an expensive model.

    The car, which was expected to be called the 8-series, had been conceived as a super sedan for the company and was to draw its styling from the hugely successful CS concept first unveiled back in 2007. While all chances of the 8-series ever arriving in showrooms have now dried up, there is new hope that its legacy will live on in a performance version of the 7-series.

    A 7-series prototype with some very distinct BMW M Division styling elements has been spotted testing in Germany for the first time and has already led to speculation that a new M7 is in the works. BMW’s storied M Division was the group assigned with development of the 8-series and it’s entirely possible that some of its mechanicals, such as a new powertrain and suspension set-up, could still appear in a new M7.

    Some of the unique features seen on this prototype include a subtle bonnet bulge, oversized brakes and an aggressively styled front bumper with gaping air intakes.

    Since the range-topping 760i already comes with a twin-turbocharged 6.0L V12 rated at 536hp (400kW) and 553lb-ft (750Nm), this new M7 will likely output upwards of 600hp (448kW) and 738lb-ft (1,000Nm) of torque.

    Everything remains speculation at this point as BMW is yet to confirm any plans for a new performance 7-series, but the evidence seen in these spy shots suggests the car is definitely coming.
