Our close friends at Autoblog got their hands on the latest generation BMW 7 Series, more specifically, the BMW 750Li.
Here is an excerpt from their test drive:
The combination of the short front overhang, 19-inch wheels and maximized cabin visually shrink the sedan. It has none of the ponderous appendages of the outgoing model thanks to the elimination of the Bangle-butt and the droopy-dog headlamps. The sculpted hood ridges flow cleanly into the A-pillars, while another character line connects the corners of the headlight clusters to the corresponding corners of the tail lamps. It’s only when you get close to the 750 that its 205-inch span becomes incredibly apparent.
Other aspects of the interior are – in some respects – a return to BMW’s roots. From the ’70s through to the ’90s, BMW dashboards always had a center stack canted toward the driver, keeping with BMW’s “Ultimate Driving Machine”
But, no worries. The V8 is magnificent piece of kit. Squeezing the throttle delivers an instant wave of torque that propels you effortlessly up to speed and could risk your license just as quickly.
