Rumor: BMW 9-Series Concept to bow at the Auto China 2014

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 3, 2014

It has been reported by German magazine Auto Motor und Sport that BMW will unveil a new 9-Series Concept this month at the 2014 Auto China. After announcing the X7 seven-seat crossover, BMW seems to take things even higher as the new concept that previews a potential 9-Series will be a large and luxurious sedan, developed especially for Chinese customers that want a chauffeur.

According to the German magazine, the 9-Series Concept will use a new modular platform based on the one used by the 7-Series flagship sedan. What’s more interesting is that the new platform will also be used by the next-generation Rolls-Royce Phantom, which will arrive in 2016.

Moreover, the 9-Series Concept will showcase a new interior design and tech features that will be found on the upcoming BMW models. For most of us, the announcement of a new 9-Series Concept is not actually a surprise because we have seen the BMW Gran Lusso Coupe Concept back in 2013.

That new concept car was developed together with Pininfarina, the well-known Italian design house, and marked the start of a partnership between the two companies. The impressive Gran Lusso Coupe Concept was powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that delivered 537 bhp, same engine found on the BMW 760i.

Besides the incredible design, the Gran Lusso Coupe also featured high-quality materials such as black and tobacco brown leather upholstery from Italian company Foglizzo, as well as trims sourced from kauri wood and black chrome. The all-new BMW 9-Series Concept will debut on April 20, so stay tuned as more details will be revealed soon!
