Exclamation F01 7 Series M Sport Official pics!!!

As featured on homepage.

Here are the first official photos of the 7 series M-sport edition.

It's with the new biturbo 3.0L diesel with 306 hp, believe they will call it the 740d.

Yes... but what good is a car that only has potential in Black & White?

My word of the day is... Disappointment! The chrome bits just look wrong...

I'd like to see the chrome pieces in a matte finished carbon fiber and for that chrome marker light thing on the side to just go away.

That front bumper is MUCH better than the regular edition. Good job.

Any other technical specs?
I believe it should be called 735d because there should be a third tri-turbo diesel coming and that one will be the 740d (or 745d..)

I think it looks good. You're all forgetting this isn't a 3 series. BMW's goal isn't to make it look purely sporty and performance oriented. It is a luxury sedan and chrome, generally, is synonymous with luxury. I guarantee most of the demographic buying this car would love the chrome and hate the matte black/carbon fiber stuff some of you are talking about. I have a 335i and I think the matte black/carbon look really completes the car, just like the chrome accents IMO complete the look of the 7.

Front chrome looks OK IMO, but the rear is awful!

looks amazing. i think the chrome adds a nice touch, needed for the segment. I think it says "I want to be formal, but I'm here to party".

i love how everyone bitching about the chrome drives the 3 series. even though this is a M Sport version its still a Big body luxury car. big cars have chrome. go look at the S-Class, bentleys, RRs, Lexus. You guys forget that people like us that Mod our cars are a minority. People who drive the 7 series are usually 40+ year old executives, doctors, business owners who want a nice luxurious car. Theyre not trying to make it look like a 20 yr old is driving it

Yeah and it's also the M-sport version of the car not the standard 7 series that your average demographic type buyers purchase. People who want just luxury get the individual or the standard 7er. People who want a sporty 7 get the M-sport or Alpina which shouldn't be slathered in chrome IMO.

Those are the same rims that are on the X5 M correct?

I don't mind the chrome in front, but the back just looks wrong. And I don't think a 7-series should have Aluminum trim in the cockpit, again looks wrong. The thick M steering wheel looks great though.

I'll take a 760iL instead thank you very much. This doesnt do it for me.

I've got an F01, so don't count me in your stats. however, I actually like chrome parts, but just not how they've been applied to the rear of this model.

the chrome doesn't look all the great in the pics...but I'm sure it looks a lot better in person. IMO it's hard to say I don't like a car until I see the real thing.
