For eons it seems like BMW 7-Series buyers have been asking for an M7. Has BMW delivered? Mysteriously, no.

Simply put, it makes no sense as the Mercedes-AMG S63 is tremendously popular and, frankly, M GmbH has broken all of its old rules. So, what's the hold up?

The iDrive infotainment system is as intuitive as ever, the clarity of its 10.25in display flawless - as is the fidelity of the Bowers & Wilkins stereo, for that matter. Then there are the massage seats, which support you admirably, while giving you an invigorating, full-body pummeling...
