The upcoming G11 BMW 7 Series continues its testing trials all across Europe. While the high-end sedan was previously spotted in Germany, Spain or France, this time it makes an appearance in the center of London. Featuring the same psychedelic and funky camouflage, the G11 7er rolls slowly down the streets of London showing its still hidden, sleek and long silhouette.
BMW says the G11 BMW 7 Series will make use of modern materials with a lot of carbon fiber. The high-end limousine 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 previous 7 Series models. 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.
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 headlights2016 BMW 7 Series Spotted In France 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.
BMW will launch the new 7 Series at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.
