I know of no ///m7 either.
Besides not existing, it will probably never exist - just look at the ideology behind the taxonomy.
3-series = sporty
5-series = sport/luxury
7-series = luxury.
roadsters = sporty
Now why would ///Motorsport bother with a luxury car? That would be like building an ///MX. Why would ///Motorsport bother with an SUV (Although that actually has a chance of happening what with the MDX, Cayenne, bla bla bla)?
Although the prospect of an ///Mpowered 5.0 V12 makes me giggle.

One could consider the current top-range X5 4.8is to be approaching M levels. There is also the prototype X5 Le Mans, armed with a 6.0L, 700hp V-12...
If this car was an "M7," it wouldn't be referred to as an M-series 735i. I've never heard of it but I think it could be somewhat plausible being that "M package" 318ti hatchbacks exist, and they are as far from Motorsport caliber as any car BMW has made recently. "M package" 328is coupes also exist, so who knows.
