Nobody seems to know the answer to your question. I can only guess that their 7 series luxury saloons were not meant as a sports car in their eyes. But the contradiction is the M5. I for one disagree with their assessment as I'm trying to turn my black creation into one. It's up to us to create our own as BMW decided not to furnish one. It's a expensive road to go starting from scratch. But were not alone, Racing Dynamics called theirs the K55, and Alpina called theirs the B12, Dinan 7 twin turbo, that's all I'm familiar with. The only production V12 BMW Motorsport developed was for the M850Csi and went by the name of S73 and provided 378bhp. There is rumored to be 1 existing true all out M V12 which resides in the only true M8 locked away in some M facility. 6 liters, 48 valves. Saw a picture of it on the 8 board some time ago.

Why didn't BMW produce a BMW 7series with the M version of the V12?

or did they?

I saw an E32 on the road today with an //M7 badge on the rear. It looked like a 740/750iL except it had the badge on the rear and was tuned very loudly with obviously a free flow exhaust.

That would be an incredible machine similar to a mildly supercharged 750 if it were really //M - V12 powered.
If BMW had a M7, I would have to find one.
