Not since the M1 has BMW had its own supercar, but it appears that within the German company there's plenty of enthusiasm for an ultra-high performance vehicle wearing the blue and white roundel.

According to American outlet Inside Line, BMW's head of product development Albert Biermann says that BMW's M division is champing at the bit to create a supercar of its own.

Responsible for hotted-up versions of regular road-going cars like the M3, M5, X6 M and 1M, the M division now wants to follow in the footsteps of its compatriot, AMG, and build a vehicle capable of competing with the SLS AMG, Audi R8 and Lexus LFA.

Whether it's allowed to do so is another matter, with Biermann saying that a sound business case for a BMW-badged supercar has yet to be put forth.
