Leaked: 2016 BMW 7-Series (G11) shows its brand new design

Article by Andrew Christian, on January 2, 2015

Although the official debut will be made in September at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the first photos with the all-new 2016 BMW 7-Series emerged on the web thanks to Autobuzz. Dubbed G11, the new 7-Series shows a completely new design with headlights inspired by those found on the BMW X5 (F15), stylish kidney grille as well as a brand new rear end with redesigned taillights.

The 2016 7-Series will be 150 kg lighter than the current version and as you can see from the photos, it will be company’s second model fitted with laser headlights. If you don’t know, the BMW i8 was the first model to get the laser headlights, making it the first production vehicle to offer this new technology.

Moreover, the new 7-Series (G11) is rumored to receive a panorama glass roof dubbed “Sky Lounge” and a crazy feature, a leather-wrapped engine cover offered as an option in order to replace the standard plastic.

There are no details regarding engine options, but we do expect to see the new flagship sedan equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 260 hp (191 kW), the popular 3.0-liter six-cylinder petrol engine with 330 hp (243 kW) as well as a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine with 460 hp (338 kW).

The top-of-the-line 760Li is expected to arrive with a 6.6-liter V12 engine developing around 600 hp (441 kW). The 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine will also be seen on the new 7-Series and as you can see from the photos, the version caught undisguised is the 730d.
