BMW M750i and 728i due in March next year ?

 BMW M750i and 728i due in March next year ?

Two new members might join the 7-Series lineup.

It seems that BMW has big plans for the 7-Series as next year's lineup will allegedly gain two additional members. BimmerToday is reporting that the Munich-based company will launch an M Performance variant of the 7-Series which will probably wear the M750i moniker. Under the hood it is expected to get a V8 4.4-liter TwinTurbo engine with about 450 hp (335 kW). An optional feature will be the xDrive system.

To make it different in comparison to the standard 750i version equipped with the M Sport package, this one will probably get a better chassis and improved driving dynamics. Regarding its price tag, it will be slotted above the 750i but below the high-end 760Li version which represents the flagship model.

The other model will be the 728i that will probably get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, just like in the Audi A8 Hybrid. The conventional engine will have an output of 245 hp (182 kW) while the electric motor will reduce fuel consumption and boost performance, delimiting this new entry-level model from the current 740i.

The current 750i (my2013) has 450hp! I think the m750 should gain some more

I dont think anyone will want a M7 with only 450hp. It will be too underpowered to be taken seriously. Why not just stick with the Alpina B7 which has at least 500hp. I feel like BMW should target the S63 and S65AMG as well as the S8, and try to at least compete with their hp numbers. Besides doesnt the 2012 BMW 750 already put out well over 400hp? The M version needs at least a 75hp boost. Why not just stick a slightly detuned M5 engine in it to keep the hp lower than the V12 car.

Agreed. The 728 is plausible, a "M750i" with specs as described is bigfoot.

When is the new 7 then due if there will be two additional models next year. Great car im sure but BMW is not doing enough to challenge Merc in this segment. The S Class according to many is still the benchmark. And this coming from a huge BMW fan.
