Autoblog drives the new BMW 7 Series

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.

    I can’t wait to see this blacked-out speedo/tach gauges. That tickles me. I’m such a geek…

    Went over to my local dealership to have a proper close look at the new 7 on sunday, they only had one in the showroom, but I have to say, the slight reservations I had about the car have gone, it does look alot better in the flesh.

    Looks good. Horatiu was right. The car looks great in black.

    Just picked up a 2010 750Li. This car can hang with anything out there. The only car I couldn’t keep up with on the autobahn was a 760. The lexus was not in this league. I would like to see it tested against a Maserati Quatraporte.
