I like the rear more than the front. These bigger pictures are better than the leaked pictures. I think it will look nice in person.

...sorry but i'm out. I could do better than this. Its such a disappointment especially when we all know that they could do it right (i mean CS) If they put CS into production no one will buy this, if they don't, everybody will go for merc or audi


Its really sad day to me...

Personally, I love the car and I think it's a beautiful evolution. It Looks very elegant and sporty...you will appreciate the design more from different angles when you compare it to the previous model, even to competitors like Lexus LS and Mercedes S. I think you can't judge a car just by seeing some photos .

The interior is best in its class, it combines luxury, elegance and it's more driver oriented in terms of the new layout.

The exterior is elegant, modern and sporty. My only concern was the rear end design. It looked little odd when i first saw it, but later when I saw newer angle photos with the tail lights ON, I started to appreciate the design and the flow of the lines. I don't think it looks anywhere near Lexus. There maybe some hints, but that's normal now a days to see some similarities with so many car designs in the market.

In terms of performance, I'm almost positive it will be best in its class and will set a new standards in driving dynamics and comfort.

You can't judge a car by just seeing photos of it. You must see it in person and drive it, then make your judgement. I'm sure once all the reviews comeout, they will praise the car's design and superior performance just like every previous model.

More and more videos became available on Youtube this morning and I ran across a few interesting ones, with the BMW Designer Adrian Van Hooydonk.

The video compilation is split into four parts and some of them might have been posted before by us, but regardless, we will go ahead and give you the full content.



We have just posted a few videos of the BMW 730d interior and exterior, but now it is time to move up a bit and post some of the videos of the BMW 750LI, codenamed F02, interior and exterior design, some driving scenes and other cool videos.

I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I do, since they truly show how beautiful the 7 really is. The interior is absolutely at least a step above the current interior design and the orientated-dash was the best move BMW has made.



Video: BMW 730d F01 Exterior Lighting

Another video released by BMW, this time the 730d is being part of a demonstration of the exterior lights.




Video: BMW 7 Series F01 Interior Operation and iDrive
Here is a short video showing the interior operations and iDrive system of the new BMW 7 Series. From the description of this video, we know that the car in this case is the 730d version for the European market.




And here is the new iDrive system with its redesigned interface. We can clearly see that the graphical user interface has improved and BMW tries to move away from the bad rep they received on the previous iDrive system.

According to engine pics shown the new 7 series will have a Variable Turbine Geometry Turbocharger similar to the one found in the 911 Turbo and it is apparently used on BMWs famous 3.0-litre straight six engine. So this might the replacement for the twin turbos used for the N54. A single turbo will reduce weight and deliver an even smoother power delivery along the rpm spectrum, as we have all seen in the 911 turbo with VTG.

Nice Design

The design is one of the best 7-Series ever! The front and rear end are the best move BMW has done since much controversial Bangle design. Not to mention the interior design is exactly what we like to see moving into next 5 (F10) and 3 (F30) series. No more hump on the dash!

If BMW put a twin turbo on the 7er, it will be the most powerful and fuel efficient 7er released to date.

i dont know how they got this info so fast, but car and driver says that bmw is claiming 0-60 in 5.2 seconds for the twin turbo 750!! (could easily be a sub-5 second car with bmw typically being conservative on 0-60 numbers!!)

Not to mention the tacky chrome sidemarkers, they look straight off Egay.

Also the tacky chrome strip on the rear, also looks straight of Egay.

I sorry, but this thing is a HUGE dissapointment.

its growing on me by the day. Now that the video is released, i think with a little personal touch, color, tint, wheels, it can look really good.

I guess you have to look at it from BMW's point of view, they are trying to innovate the typical large sedan design. Its def sexy haha

Just looks a little two narrow and tall, as well as "jacked up"
Lowered sport suspension may help...

But yeah, after the awesome work on the E92 and X6, I would have thought they'd have refined the Bangle style by now... this one's exterior is still rough along the edges.

Especially when the new S-class looks so damn good.

lol the same controversy as when the E65 came out, and look at it, its still one of the sexiest large sedans on the road. This car is sexy. All those people who think people will move to audi and mercedes are just stupid. The driving experience of BMW CANNOT be matched by any of their competitors and this looks way better than the new S or the out-dated A8
