The upcoming 2016 BMW 7 Series has just leaked on the interwebs and new information continue to arrive in our inbox. When it comes to market, the new 7 Series will have plenty of gadgets, new tech and luxury features to satisfy even the most demanding owners.

Two of those options are the Leather Engine Cover and a Panorama Glass Roof “Sky Lounge”. While the leather engine cover is meant to increase the level of luxury in the new 7 Series, the panorama glass roof brings a generous amount of light, fascinating views and fresh air into the high-end sedan.

The technology in and outside the cabin is said to be exponentially more impressive than anything we have seen in a BMW so far. From the innovative keyfob to the redesigned iDrive and plethora of driving assistance features, the new 7 Series flagship will cater to an ever changing demographic that not only value the luxury and craftsmanship in the 7 Series but also the technology of the 21st century.

Some of the cool stuff that gets us excited are the wireless charging of smartphones inside the car, the gestures-based navigation, the synergy between the information displayed to the passenger and the driver, the self-parking via keyfob, laser lights and B&W Audio System.

    uummm, what is a leather engine cover? You mean when you open the hood, the engine is covered with plastic wrapped in leather? Normally it is plastic with the BMW logo on it. How is this adding any value?

  2. raleedy says:

    The last leather-covered engine was a horse.

  3. Mklasse says:

    What’s next? glass bonnet to show off the leather engine cover? Would be a shame if the only ones who saw the leather engine cover is the mechanic right? gotta show if off so your jealous neighbors can see that you paid for that option!
    I think the new 7 will be a great car with many groundbreaking technologies, but leather engine cover sounds a bit… stupid?

  4. roadkillrob says:

    I am sure the leather engine cover will look like crap after a year of dirt and grime and insane amounts of heat to harden it – totally stupid idea!

  5. Juan Manuel Martinez says:

    Leather engine cover? that’s amazingly stupid but I’m sure there’s people with less sense than money willing to pay for that crap.

    However, wouldn’t it be better just to make a pretty engine to look at? like in the old days. (Just saying)

  6. Gerard Alcini says:

    What is so special about the glass roof? is it open air or maybe the “cool shade” technology BMW put on the active tourer concept a couple years back. Mercedes has this tech ala “magic sky” in the S Class.
