BMW’s super luxury ship like a sedan, the all New 2016 BMW 7 Series is set to unveil on June 10, which is well ahead of the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. The sixth-generation flagship sedan from the German carmaker will showcase BMW’s new design language with a prominent grille that is complemented by laserlight headlight cluster like the ones seen on the BMW i8 hybrid sports car. The evolutionary design has made its way for the model to have front fender and svelte tail lights with chrome inserts. The super sedan will be available through dealers starting by year end as a 2016 model.
The spy shots of the sedan have been floating on the internet for quite some time now and BMW has kept the details under the wraps, however the company has confirmed the sedan will weigh up to 130 kgs less than its predecessor. This happens due to all-new Efficient, Lightweight chassis which uses an extensive amount of CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic), thanks to the “Carbon Core” body structure which also adds up to the “Carbon Core” badge.
The car also loses weight at wheel carriers, wheel-bearing hubs and brake calipers. As a unique marketing process, BMW also had the new 7-Series presented to potential VIP customers ahead of its official unveil. One can also notice the extensive chrome job done on the new 7-series; a chrome strip runs on the side-ways of the sedan at the bottom of the doors which ends at the front fenders. The chrome touch focuses on the exclusiveness of the sedan, while it could be optionally and only available with the top of the line.
BMW is hopeful that it will reclaim the segment crown with the all new 7-Series offering technology and safety features which is extraordinary in its class. The driving experience does the talking in the 7-Series, a Driving Experience Control switch houses a COMFORT, COMFORT+ and SPORT mode. A new driving mode called the ADAPTIVE mode will be available in the new 7-Series, in which the car will automatically adapt to the characteristics of the drive. The luxury sedan will also feature a technologically advanced gesture control interface.
The speculations reveal that the new 2016 BMW 7 Series would carry the new B58 modular six-cylinder engine for the 740i trim as base model packing 320HP. As an addition to the 7’er line-up there will also be a 750i which will be launched, boasting a 4.4liter V8 engine pumping 445HP. A range topper could also be added with a V12 engine with badge as 760Li.
To have all of these features packed into on elegant design and to complement those features, BMW introduces a remote parking feature. By using the Display Key, you can have the car park by itself in extremely tight places where the driver can’t get off the car.
