Despite the unexpected leak, BMW has decided to keep the camouflage on its new 2016 7 Series. A test mule was spotted once again in Germany featuring the typical black and white camo hiding the last design details.

The exterior design is an evolution of the current F01/F02 models. BMW chose to focus on the driving experience, weight reduction and high-tech inside and outside the cabin.

Customers can choose between the Pure Design Excellence and the BMW M Sport package, both variants are significantly different from each other.

Inside, the G11/G12 7 Series feature the large LCD screen on top of the dashboard and higher quality trims and leather.

The new 2016 BMW 730d is up to 170 kg lighter than the previous model. The data sheet shows a curb weight of 1745 kg, including driver and luggage.

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.

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.

BMW will debut the new 7 Series this fall at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

    Somebody please explain to me how a leather engine cover increases luxury? It just sounds so pointless!

    I don’t doubt that the 7er is going to be a fine car but the S-Class is in a league of it’s own. Nothing in this class can touch Mercedes. Perhaps the next-gen A8, but like BMW, Audi plays it pretty conservative and doesn’t stray too far from its design language and I don’t see them changing it anytime soon.

      the car isnt even out yet are you fucking stupid?

        I know I’m not, are you? Before you start throwing profanities out there, perhaps you should do a bit of reading on this site, then hop over to Bimmerpost and read the various threads which confirm that the leaked pictures of the G11 7er are in fact authentic and are final design.

        Again, I’m sure the G11 7er is going to be a fine car but it is definitely not close to the W222 S-Class as a package and especially in this price range.

    this front looks like a camouflaged 3 series….yeah like someone here said the S class is in it’s own league now , I expected bmw to step up , maybe the new series is in the works , something between 7 and rolls.

      There was a rumor of a 9-series that would compete more so with bentley and rolls..leaving the door open for the 8-series (7-series coupe/conv.)

    • TheBingoBalls says:

      Mercedes did such a wonderful job with the W222 S-Class, it put Audi and BMW in a unique position. Mercedes doesn’t have a true Bentley & Rolls Royce competitor so they had a lot of room for pricing and options for the S-Class (see: base S-Class and Maybach spec). What’s BMW and Audi to do? BMW is in talks/planning the idea of another class of cars for this reason but why introduce new model that would compete closer to your own car, Rolls Royce, when you could just do a better job with the G11 7er?

      The reason to hold back the 7er/A8 is not to get too close to Rolls Royce and Bentley so I’m not sure why BMW would create a new class, would make the 5er/7er redundant.

    on 06/mar/2015 in Italy, near Lake Como, going to Switzerland (probably through Splugen or Maloja Pass): http://www.laprovinciadisondrio.it/stories/Cronaca/supercar-mascherate-test-sul-lario_1108683_11/
