Still, even though it's a flagship sedan with a bigger-than-life grille, the appeal of the 7 Series is limited. Not only are people now more concerned with flash SUVs and super-fast electric cars, but BMW themselves have topped off their range with the 8 Series, which has something the 7er lacks - a true M version.
A few days ago, we looked at what a possible M7 sedan might look like and which engine should power it. And now Aksyonov Nikita is back with yet more renderings based on the 7 Series LCI. Can you guess what they are?
Our favorite has to be the 7 Series Touring, which he described as both a Shooting Brake and a wagon, even though the only thing that differs is the wheels and the bumper line. Outside of a few coachbuilt examples, such a car doesn't exist, which is a real shame.
We've also got coupe and cabrio renderings of the LCI model. Again, given that there's a thing called the 8 Series, we don't really need 2-door 7 Series versions. But instead of sleek, shark-like and low, this theoretical model looks like a granite slab, a bit like a Rolls-Royce.
If there were a real need for any of these cars, BMW would build them. After all, they keep a pointless thing like the 3 Series GT around, not to mention millions of engines and chassis combinations. But if we had to pick one add-on for the 7 Series range, it would still have to be the M7. If AMG can find so many S63 customers, why can't the Bavarians?
