2016 BMW 7-Series Convertible Render - 1

BMW recently unveiled its new 2016 7-series was recently unveiled but the folks at BMWCoop wanted something more from this luxury sedan. The online publication artistically re-imagines an open-top version of the luxury sedan equipped with a M-Sport package. While there is no official confirmation from BMW about any such convertible, rumour mill suggests that an open-top 7-series might be in the pipeline to compete against the Mercedes S-Class convertible.

If this model does make it to assembly line, it is likely to carry the same engine range that powers the 2016 BMW 7-Series. The new 2016 BMW 7-Series will be available with the following engine and variant options :

  • A 750i xDrive / 750Li xDrive powered by a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that pumps out 450 PS and 650 Nm of twist enabling the saloon to sprint from 0-100 kmph in a mere 4.4 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 kmph.
  • A 740i / 740Li with a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine cranking out 326 PS and 450 Nm of twist. It accelerates to 100 kmph from standstill in a scant 5.5 seconds before topping out at 250 kmph.
  • A 730d / 730Ld / 730d xDrive / 730Ld xDrive powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder diesel mill churning out 265 PS and 620 Nm of torque. This engine propels the car to 100 kmph from standstill in a mere 5.8 seconds before reaching its top whack of 250 kmph.
  • Also available will be a new BMW 740e / 740Le / 740Le xDrive plug-in hybrid powered by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine, a 95 PS (70 kW) electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. This hardware setup enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 326 PS which allows the sprint from 0-100 kmph in a scant 5.5 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 240 km/h (149 mph).
