Detroit Auto Show offered me the opportunity to see the 2009 BMW 7 Series for the first time in  a darker color. Back in November we were at the L.A Auto Show for the U.S launch of the new 7er, but the vehicles in displayed were both light-colored.

Back in the days of spy photos and official photos release, I kept telling you how much better the 2009 BMW 7 Series looks in a black paint.

To my surprise, BMW decided to change it up a little bit for the Detroit Show and while they still brought the 7 series Hybrid in the same blueish exterior color, they showed us for the first time the BMW 750i SWB and in a black color.

And I was right, the 7er looks imposing and very very classy in dark colors. If I were to buy one, I’ll definitely want the short wheel base one and in black, por favor.

Oh, not sure if I mentioned already, but the BMW 750i is powered by the same twin-turbo 4.4L V8 that debuted in the X6. The turbo eight is rated at 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.

Enjoy the photos!

    Hmmmm, black always looks great under the showroom light, but is it really that great on this car? my dad has always had black cars but his current 750LI is in the individual blue(what ever the name is) and iv never seen a better color on a 7series! He hasnt officialy orderd his new 7 series so its still a debate on what colour. I think the blue again with the individual wheels. What do you guys think?

  • Volan

    I think the new models are an improved version over the “bangled” versions…lets see what happens

  • Gord

    Yeah it does look good.

  • Elio

    That’s a lovely colour. I’ll never forget the biarritz blue E38 740i my dad had with Alpina’s and cream leather with biarritz piping. One of the most beautiful 7′s I’ve ever seen.

  • Jag

    i prefer the “space grey”, it looks fantastic!

  • Speedoholic

    I’ve seen this car in person quite a lot, and it looks stunning.
