Updated September 14, 2014 with new pics and info.
We share with you a first look at the G11 7 Series production laser headlights! As you can see, the new L-shaped laser lights are inspired by the recent BMW concept cars such as the Vision Future Luxury Concept
, X4 Concept
, 4 Series Concept
and present a fresh and modern evolution of the BMW corona rings / angel eyes. As our recent info
revealed, LED lights will be standard on the new 7 Series while the laser lights are optional (both are pictured in the photos below). We'll also likely see models that come after the next 7 Series begin to share similar headlight styling in one form or another.
The new L-headlights are paired with wide kidney grilles and a hood cutline which joins the top of the kidney grilles, presenting a front end look that's already sportier than the current 7 Series.
While the tail lights remain completely covered and camouflaged, they will be more squared off and angular compared to the current 7 Series.
Besides new headlight technology, the next 7 Series will feature a new interior (photos reposted below) and also represent the first substantial use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic in a series production BMW.
Speaking at the 94th Annual General Meeting of BMW AG in Munich in May 2014, Dr. Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG again confirmed that the next generation 7 Series (G11) will make use of carbon fiber in its construction:
"BMW i is the spearhead of innovation within the company, with lightweight construction playing a central role. We are now also applying this expertise to other series models. Customers already appreciate the carbon-fibre roofs in our BMW M models. I can also reveal that we will use carbon fibre in the next BMW 7 Series. Its low weight will set a very high standard for the segment."
The G11 7 Series is due next year.
