The next generation BMW 7 Series was spotted at Nurburgring during testing trials. The G11/G12 7 Series can also be seen with the panoramic sunroof while the rest of the body is still heavily covered by the psychedelic camouflage.

BMW CEO Dr. Norbert Reithofer recently confirmed that the G11 BMW 7 Series will make use of modern materials with a lot of carbon fiber. So the new BMW 7 Series will set new luxury-class standards not only in terms of lightweight construction, but also in driving dynamics.

With the new G11/G12 platform, BMW managed to shed some weight off the 7 Series. The weight of the base 740i model is said to dramatically drop below the 1900kg kerb weight. The new 2016 BMW 7 Series features a mix of materials that allow for considerable weight savings: carbon fiber parts were added to the aluminum and steel used in today’s car. The roof, bonnet and bootlid are most likely to be made from CFRP.

While the current F01/F02 generation is offered with a short and long wheelbase, the new advanced G11 may come with an “extra-long” version.

2016 BMW 7 Series is the first BMW after the i8 to also get optional laser headlights.

Design wise, BMW is taking an evolutionary approach with the styling of its next 7 Series. The trunk lid looks to be different and up front the hood and grille appear to sit lower. The headlights feature a more slicker design while the rear lights seem to be smaller in size. The C-pillar is also likely to be hiding a revised version of BMW’s signature Hofmeister kink.

Under the hood it will receive a wide array of six-cylinder, V8 and V12 mills, along with inline-six diesels.

    Ha ha, are you serious? This is actually the 2011 facelift version of current one. The next gen one would actually be tested in Nurburgring in Sept/Oct this year for first time. Whoever has provided these clips is pulling your leg!

  • Marco.cretelino

    Efoza seems to be right. This is the footage of the current model 4 years ago. Why hype a car up like this? I just don’t understand.

    I actually think it is an old clip of the 2010 5 series. Have a close look at the bonnet, it is certainly not an all new next gen 7 series model.

    this is the new bmw 7 series 2016. look at the front bonnet and look at the roof!!! panorama sunroof!!! does any of older bmw 7 series models got panoramic sunroof?

    • Gerd Hoffman

      Yes, the panoramic roof was tested on both the 2009 and 2011 7 series models but never entered into production as the back of the seals used to keep leaking.

      The front bonnet is also the old one which eventually found its way on the 2010 5 series.

      The video clip is for sure not of the next generation 7 series. Whoever is saying it is, I think is fooling you!

        ok then, look at the smoking pipes, they are really different form the old f01′s pipes. and also, look at the side mirrors, they are new model mirrors. of course it might be not real because next 7 series will come out only next year, but i’m very interested in 7 series models and waiting for the new one. i believe they would make the bomb, because the f01 for me was just a good bmw, but not the bomb!
