2017 BMW M760i xDrive

It appears BMW may have another M-division vehicle on the horizon.

The automaker has applied to trademark the “M7” name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

First discovered by , the automaker officially filed and had the trademark approved for use on April 27. The trademark was filed for use with automobiles specifically and currently sits in a pending state for three months until the office completes a further examination.

If BMW does plan for a true M7, it won’t be a glorified sticker and badge pack. The brand has introduced M Performance models to fulfill such a niche, while M-badged models carry the true performance guts. We’re not sure how BMW will top the current M760i M Performance model, however. The sedan already packs a 601-horsepower 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 paired to an all-wheel-drive system, though it’s hardly a true M vehicle. Such a car also costs a cool $154,795.

The original report suggests an M7 could fit an uprated 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine from the 2018 M5. Right now, the engine makes a very conservative 600 hp, but perhaps a theoretical M7 will make more with added luxury goodies onboard. The same engine is rumored to make a debut in the 2020 BMW M8, also paired to the M division’s new own all-wheel-drive system. If the engine does find its way to the M8, it would make for some overlap with an M8 Gran Coupe and potential M7.
