X7 M60i logo points to future V12 X7?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I noticed that the codiing data and BMW software has a logo for an X7 M60i embedded.

Wonder if this is in prep for a new model.

See in this article, they speculated about it:

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/04/ne...ing-else-know/

"According to a leaked spec-sheet from last year, BMW will compliment the straight-six with a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 developing 455 hp (340kW) on the xDrive50i. That leaves room for an over-the top X7 xDrive M60i with the M760Li’s monstrous 600PS (592 HP) and 800Nm (590 lb-ft) twin-turbocharged V12 to further differentiate the model from the next X5, despite some rumors claiming that BMW could pull the plug on the 6.6-liter engine down the road."

So cool if it happens. The 7 series sedan has a 740, 750, 760, and Alpina...the 7 series SAV should follow the same map as well.

I assume no updates on this? I have toyed with the idea of upgrading my 50i to an M50i, but no sense in that if an M60i is on the way....

I am with you. I was also contemplating to trade my 50i for a M50i, till I see the news about Alpina XB7.

M60i may take a while, but a XB7 is just around the corner. Hang in there.

I would take Alpina any day after I test drive their 7er version

If ever there was a current BMW that deserves a V12 then this is it! Great news if it's true!

Read the original source link for this image. The gauge is not from an actual M60i.
