Because it's not in line with BMW's current efforts. The engine is a complete revamp of the engine in the 550i. BMW seems to be committed to turbocharging, not SC

If they were to supercharge a V8, it would just add extra cost because it would only be used on one car and be bespoke, like the E60's V10.

BMW doesn't seem to be doing that anymore.
