2016 BMW 7 Series spied on German circuit – Video
Next generation BMW 7 Series is again spotted testing, in Nürburgring motorsports complex, Germany. BMW’s flagship sedan was earlier caught during winter tests on snowy roads. Also known as G11, new 7 Series is expected to be unveiled in later part of 2015, for 2016 launch.
New 7 Series will be superior in terms of construction. Incorporating special composite materials like carbon fibre reinforced polymer along with steel and aluminium, 2016 BMW 7 Series will be built on a new platform. This could result in weight loss of around 204 kg (450 lbs). Better driving dynamics is definitely on cards.
Engine lineup of 2016 BMW 7 Series is expected to consist of a 4 cylinder (2.0 litre) mill generating 260 bhp (194 kW), a 6 cylinder motor producing 340 bhp (254 kW) and a V8 plant pushing out 460 bhp (343 kW). These turbocharged and direct injected engines if plonked in new 7 Series, will be tuned for improved fuel efficiency. Rumours suggest another big power house to feature in next generation 7 Series. A 4.0 litre V8 with twin turbo unleashing around 475 bhp (354 KW) of max. power and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of peak torque. This could be an M770i xDrive variant.
Word around indicates a certain autonomous technology to feature in upcoming 7 Series, through the BMW – Continental partnership. In car infotainment system will be presented by BMW – Harman collaboration. Expect 3D maps with real-time weather and traffic updates, downloadable applications, Wi-Fi connectivity and improved voice command features.
