A number of low resolution and images of the next-generation BMW 7-Series have just leaked online before the car’s June 10 world debut. The information and pictures come courtesy of BMW Austria which inadvertently released the online configurator for the car.
For starters, the released information confirms that in Austria at least, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will be available in Black Sapphire, Carbon Black, Alpine White, Black College, Glacier Silver, Cashmere Silver, Sophisto Grey, Imperial Blue, Mineral White, Arctic Grey Brilliant, Jatoba and Magellan Grey. A selection of different wheels will also be available varying between 17 and 20 inch in size.
Additionally, a number of the optional extras for the new 7-Series have leaked. For example, there is the Driving Assistant Plus package which will set customers back a cool €3180. Elsewhere is an Alcantara headliner costing €1440, full adaptive LED headlights priced at €1800, adjustable rear seats for €2220 and the Pure Excellence interior theme. An M Sport Package will also be offered and costing €5760 euros.
Austria will receive the 730d, 740i and 750i variants. The former of those delivers a total of 265 hp while the 740i pumps out 326 hp and the 750i delivers 450 hp.
Elsewhere, we know that the new BMW 7-Series will include a number of chassis tweaks. These will include the fitment of two-axle air suspension complete with a self-levelling system as standard. Additionally, Dynamic Damper Control is featured while an improved version of the German automaker’s Integral Active Steering system also makes its debut on the new 7-Series. Elsewhere, an electromechanically driven Dynamic Drive roll stabilisation system has been installed.
Moreover, the new BMW 7-Series incorporates a touch display for its iDrive monitor which is a first for the firm. Alongside the inclusion of touch technology, the iDrive monitor also includes gesture control. A fully digital instrument panel is also featured despite a recent image showing a half analog and half digital gauge cluster.
