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.[Photos: Autogespot via Supercarsallday]
