Anything has to be better than the plastic pieces in the current 7. Everytime I use the turn signal it reminds me of being in a 90's honda civic, just cheap quality plastics used, and its a facelift model, 07

They are NOT the same car. What "guarantee" do you have the the F01 will not have black plastic knobs? And if you guarantee and know an "exec" that said the shifter will be mounted to the wheel, why is that you aren't sure what car this is? Just like the previous poster said, just look at the door handle and gauges, as they differ. Also look closely at the cover on the passenger door as they differ, along with the controls on the steering wheel.

It could be very easy to get the two mixed up, I'm sure they will share some similarities, its hard to tell with the foam covers over everything...

The guy in the first picture is wearing a solid brown shirt, then the 3rd pic the guy is wearing a stripped cuffed shirt, same shirt is shown in the "f10" shots, dunno, maybe they were taken the same day...

lol to the "I can confirm this car has air vents and a steering wheel" comment, thats kinda what I was thinking, the way they have it hidden its hard to tell anything except that those gauges will probably look cool as hail...

Thanks South- nice to see a forum member with some experience qualifying what I already said- it is the F01..........

Wow- twin turbo V12..... 765Li maybe????

Oh and South, any idea whether BMW will continue to use the "Li" designator or will they return to the old "iL" for the new F01?

I wish they will have a proper gear stick. And the conventional handbrake is much better.

Guys, this is F01 new gen. 7-series!

The knobs, buttons, trim are still pre-production prototypes - not the real ones (which will be galvanized metallic mostly. Also there will be different trims for F01 SWB (more sporty) vs F02 LWB (more luxurious).

And, yes: F01 will have more common interior with the other BMWs - think X6 / X5 style. Sporty elegance.

Also: many new high-end engines coming with F01 / F02, and much new tech. Especially chassis management stuff, and driving assistance systems. And do not forget the new 8-speed super sporty & super smooth ZF automatic. Dynamic xDrive will also be on board - optionally.


Design: evolution of E65 exterior (at least at front), with CS touches (side), and very elegant & interesting rear (tail lights). Overall appearence much sportier, simpler, and more elegant, less controversial than E65 - yet still very fresh & modern. Kind a back to E38 style. Sleek (but noth thin!) & this time with lower greenhouse - giving the car more sporty coupeish appearence.
F01 fits better in the current BMW line than E65 does. Interior will be of more standard layout & in line with latest BMW interior designs (think X5 / X6), with some new design cues & some very interesting trim options.


Mind that more special design (exterior & interior) is to be exercised on the upcoming BMWs new flagship: Gran Turismo (new 8er based on CS concept),, which will follow the CS concept design cues as much as possible.


Summary: F01 / F01 will be much more typical BMW (in all aspects) than the E65 was. Definitely won't stand out so much anymore as pre-FL E65 did.


PS: Official pics coming in 3 months (July), premiere at Paris Motorshow in October, sales starts a week or two later (in Europe; in US when F02 is available few months later).
