Upcoming 2016 BMW 7-Series rendered image.
The 2016 BMW 7-Series flagship has been rendered by autoforum. The images give us a peak of the S-Class rival and we must say, this 7-er looks great. The Bavarians have given all they have got and left no stone unturned with this one. The front fascia gets the unmistakable twin kidney grille set up and are flanked by the stretched out headlight cluster. These headlights get the new BMW Intelligent Adaptive LED technology and DRLs. BMW have also gone about tweaking the mechanical bits of the 2016 7-er. The flagship saloon now comes with an all-new carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) components. This lightweight material has helped the new 7-er lose 130 kg in weight and increased the body’s torsional rigidity.
Stretched out taillight units & the bumper-integrated tailpipes lend the new 7-er a classy appeal.
Power for the 2016 BMW 7-Series will come from a host of powerplants. New among which will be an inline six-cylinder, TwinPower Turbo petrol engine. All the engines will send their power to the rear, unless it’s an AWD xDrive variant. The latter will have the power fed to all four corners for increased stability and grip. Regardless, all of the engines will come mated to a revised 8-speed autobox. The 2016 BMW 7-Series will be blessed with 50-50 weight distribution and a new two-axle air suspension with an automatic self-leveling system. This big limo of a car will also boast electronically-controlled dampers and electromechanically-driven Dynamic Drive roll stabilisation.
