It's the new BMW 7 Series!

2008-07-04 08:50

Official photos of BMW's all-new 7 Series have leaked on the internet and if you expected a less radical look for this flagship, you are in for a surprise.

The new 7 Series's design appears to be even more controversial than before. BMW will officially unveil the car at the British Motor Show later this month, when more details will become available.

It will feature a range of fresh engines - new diesels are on the cards and the 750i will be powered by BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. The more powerful 760i keeps the familiar 6.0-liter V12.

All models are equipped with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which is beneficial for fuel consumption too. The new transmission will also see the gearlever moved from the steering column back to the centre console.

There is also a new night vision system, which is apparently able to detect pedestrians in front of the vehicle.

The interior sports a new iDrive controller with buttons mounted around it now, and the iDrive onscreen interface itself is new, too.
