2015 BMW 7 Series prototype spied with new details

Next generation BMW 7 Series (G11) has been spied again showing new details. The next 7 Series prototype shows a more dynamic and sportier look with a lower and wide front. The car also looks wider compared to the current model.

The prototype also reveals for the first time new exhaust pipe exits and the signature Hofmeister kink. The lights are still temporary, meaning there is still lot of testing ahead until we will see the new 7 Series without any disguise.

As with the current model, both regular and long-wheelbase versions will be offered.

Besides an evolutionary exterior design, the new 7 Series will also go through dramatic changes under the skin.

The new platform will be lighter, there will be more fuel-efficient engines and also new safety and tech goodies.

New lightweight construction will see more use of carbon fibre that we can expect on the roof, bonnet, doors.. etc.

Engine range will include six-, eight- and twelve-cylinder engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid model.

To take on the S 63 and S 65 AMG a new M Performance model fitted most likely with a twin-turbocharged V8 is also in development.

Some of the new tech and safety features we can expect include traffic warning systems, self parking, semi autonomous driving technology and latest connectivity with WiFi, 3D maps, weather updates, apps and voice activation.
