Wow..ground breaking stuff indeed..the idrive screen is now touch screen!! Who would have thought!! And now you can make gestures like a moron while driving aswell!! Some awesome tech right there..

2 billion useless driving assists that 90% of owners aways keep disabled most of the time so it stop bothering you..awesome..

Hot spot on your car? Never seen before..unbelievable indeed this new 7.

Wireless charge your phone its pretty useful though..just hope it wirelessly connect to the idrive aswell.

But what disapoints me the most its the design..huge headlights..I thought scott said it would resemble the vision luxury but im failing to see where? I think if BMW hadn't given us the VL concept, i would never know how good this car could have looked like and wouldn't be so upset lol.

Precisely. Design from 2000, tech from 2012/2013. Nothing groundbreaking here. Would love to see a fully loaded 7 vs fully loaded S class weight comparison at some point.

+1, I'd like to know. I can think of a few really bad scenarios (i.e. pot holes, deer, wandering children). I'm sure there are additional security measures but the potential is terryfying.

S is on a different level in this segment.

I'll reserve judgment until I see see the beast in person. However, I do agree in principle to this statement. The new 7 will have to bring a lot to the table in order to best the S.

Exactly what I was thinking. Hell even the wireless charging is already available in some other production cars. All in all, sounds like they're playing catch up.

(different color selections). When you press the key in the evening, you will see a light on the ground by the car, similar to a "red carpet" in the shape of the number 7. so cool!
Thanks, Stan! The interior sounds so exciting!!

Does the sunroof actually light up, or can the driver control its transparency like the new S-class roofs? And do the panels operate independently, so the rear passengers can adjust their panel the way they want?

What's with the shape of the 7 behind the desk?

Is a new font for model nomenclature coming?

Also used for the puddle light referenced?

Sounds awesome!

For the record I don't get the love for the S Class here. I think the interior while maybe luxurious is hideous.

Lol that would mean the car won't let you switch lanes at all. It's suppose to stop you drifting into another lane, which usually has no steering input. If you suddenly decide to swerve, it's not going to fight you and put you back into your lane.

Makes no sense to make a production car so secret. It's not like we won't see them all over LA in a few months. Smh.

There is a difference between wandering off to the next lane vs making a sudden maneuver to the next lane. Should be fairly easy for the system to understand the difference between the two different situations.

Marketing... the ones who feel special by getting a personal invite feel more connected to the brand and are more inclined to buy it.

Sounds awesome, thanks for sharing. I hope some of this makes it into the G30. 7 just too big for my tastes and needs.

There are many instances when you know where the potholes are and you do not tend to make a sudden lane departure to avoid them. I do this on a daily basis on the way home from work. I do not drift in to the other lane, but I do go a bit over the shoulder to avoid 3 bad patches on the highway.
