The wait is almost over. After years of spy photos and accidental leaks, the new 2015 BMW 7 Series will be unveiled on June 10th.

Using social media as a marketing tool, BMW published a short teaser on Twitter announcing the imminent launch of the 7 Series and giving us a quick look at the taillights, headlights, laser technology and the carbon core structure. We’ve recently had the chance to drive the new 7 Series at Miramas and our driving impressions can be found here.

Using an all-new EfficientLightweigh chassis, which uses an extensive amount of CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) in the passenger cell and aluminum in the chassis, the new G11/G12 7 Series will weigh 130 kg (286 lbs) less than the previous generation. Other updates include a new iDrive system with gestures, air suspension, safety features and autonomous functions. We put together an article describing all those new features of the 7 Series.

Next test drives are scheduled in August when we will be able to tell you all about the production version.
