These latest shots give us a partial look at the interior design of the 2016 BMW 7 Series, as well as at the full LED headlights.

Back in December, first images of the 2016 BMW 7 Series were accidentally leaked, yet BMW continues to test prototypes with full camouflage. These latest shots give us a partial look at the interior design, as well as at the full LED headlights.

While the 7 Series is not expected to bring a revolutionary design, 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.

BMW is not only giving the 7er the coolest gadgets and electronics, but also a revamped engine lineup.

Petrol Engines

The new G11 and G12 models will use petrol engines with three different cylinder configurations: a four, six and the V8. The entry-level petrol, sold under the 730i badge, will produce 260 horsepower from the new 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine (code B48B20O0).

The next petrol model is the 740i powered by a new 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine (B58B30M0) with an output of 330 hp.


The powerful V8 TwinTurbo is the same unit (N63B44O2) as the one used in the current generation 750i and 750Li. So the power is expected to be around 460 horsepower.

The top petrol dog remains the 760Li and its V12 6.6 liter engine (N74B66U1) that powers the Rolls Royce Ghost and Wraith. It will continue to produce 600 horsepower but apparently it has slightly better fuel consumption.


The three or four diesels offered, depends how you look at them (725d, 730d, 740d and 750d) will have a power range from 258 to 381 horsepower. The entry level diesels are said to be the most efficient engines ever seen with unprecedented low CO2 levels.

Plug-in Hybrids

Two plug-in hybrids, a 730e and a 740e model, are scheduled for production also. The first would pair the electric drivetrain to a four cylinder engine (730e) while the second one to a more powerful six-cylinder (740e).

The 730e is rumored to produce 275 horsepower with an average consumption of 2 liters per 100 km.

Both hybrid versions can run on pure electric mode at speeds up to 120 km/h, with a maximum range of 60 kilometers, which could increase to 100 kilometers in the most powerful hybrid version.

The report also mentions a new 9-speed gearbox.


BMW will unveil the 7 Series this summer prior to the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

    I’m sure the materials will be off the highest quality, but this interior design of BMW is very stale

    • Steve McGill says:

      They will be OF THE LOWEST quality!!!! BMW make shit cars, even LADA make better cars than BMW, you are an idiot

      • Rekan says:

        Looking at your profile you literally go around saying the most negative and stupid shit you can possibly muster up. I have never in my life seen someone as mentally incapable of being human as you. If I found out you died I would throw a party on your grave and piss on it. And then turn your wife into a Muslim knowing it would kill you even more on the inside.

    The interior seems to get some parts from the BMW vision future luxury.

  3. Curamrda says:

    Inferior is very boring… Its like 5er with 6er idrive :(

    • Billy The Hillbilly says:

      … and how do we judge it’s quality in the best way? Oh, I know, from one blurry photo with a window reflecting in it, dat ll be brilliant :-)

    • Senne says:

      On the contrary: I think the interior looks fantastic! :D

      • Billy The Hillbilly says:

        well… the problem is – its main purpose is almost everything else rather than drawing excitement and astonishment just by its looks. We have BMW where everything served its purpose for decades, the looks was just far behind in the list of priorities; I think the “good-looking-but-otherwise-crap” conviction of, say….. the Audi’s…… is not what BMW needs. So I think by judging the intirior just by the looks, you are in the wrong fields at a first place.

          Look, I don’t know what your problem is, but if you hate BMW so much, then why are you even on BMW Blog?? You’re just annoying everyone here. -_-

    • herbaled says:

      How could you possibly know? From the photo? Yeah, right.

  4. Icebreaker says:

    lol i remember people hated the 6 series spy shots in the past but when unveiled they fell in love. just wait untill its fully complete this car has ages yet

  5. Steve McGill says:

    BMW shit, waste of the earth’s resources, ugly, low quality and and made for assholes.

  6. DaReg says:

    Will this be enough to challenge the Reigning King (S-Class) in luxury??? I don’t think so. This is just a 3-series that ate all the cookies, :)

    • Icebreaker says:

      and the S class is a C class that ate all the cookies

    • Billy The Hillbilly says:

      One of the few good news about the newcoming 7er is that it is definitely not going to be resembling that…. weight wise. Nevertheless, your comment is brilliant :)

    So, the car is good, i think is beautiful car and it will be a good competitor for Mercedes, but, that digital/analogic dashboard is not so cool, why they don’t keep it classic?
