At its launch in Munich the BMW 7 series (F01) defines a new standard for combining superior driving dynamics, outstanding presence and exceptional travel comfort. The elegant and sporty design is reflected in the long hood, the low roof line and dynamic proportions. A chrome band extends across the entire rear which, together with the rear lights, accentuates the width of the vehicle.
The interior boasts exclusive, exceptionally-crafted materials and a multitude of modern assistance systems: From active cruise control and lane assist to the head-up display. Additional safety is provided by cameras that show the rear view and can also provide an all-round view. This option generates a picture of the vehicle from above, guaranteeing the best possible overall view.
Diesel and gasoline engines provide sporty performance, including double-charged turbo engines and the BMW 760i, whose V12-cylinder engine delivers 400 kW (544 hp). And for the first time, a hybrid drive is available in the BMW 7 series. The optional four-wheel drive, Adaptive Roll Stabilization and Electronic Damper Control (EDC) all contribute to the typical BMW driving dynamics – for safe, precise driving.
The 2012 model update brings a new central display with 3D visuals, redesigned assistance systems including the LED high-beam assistant, and reworked, more efficient engines.
