That interior looks dated before the car's even released. Seems like BMW has badly missed the bus on this one. Weight savings is not going to sell a car in this class if the interiors suck.



Last year's S-class release would've allowed BMW enough time (for G11 7's release in 2016) even after design freeze to improve the staid interior. Not only does the exterior look like a refresh of the F01, but Mercedes has moved the game so far ahead that one can only hope the A8 remains understated enough for the 7 series to have a chance. What a decline from the days of the E38.

That interior screen is way too small and those dials are way too dated. I hope they spruce up the interiors to levels of the new S

Why are those central AC vents glowing like that?

Looks like its the same old story again.
The 3 series is the best small executive sedan
The 5 series is the best mid size executive sedan
But the full size luxury segment continues to be dominated by the s class.
Once again the S class is destined to rule the market over its rivals.

Shame it can't seem to replicate the same success when it comes to the super luxury class. There the Brits still rule the roost, if you discount the fact that Rolls Royce is owned by BMW and bentley is owned by VW.

I think that glow was camouflage showing up under the lights, because in this set, it appears normal

The 2016 BMW 7-Series was set to make its public debut at the 2015 Geneva motor show. However, un-camouflaged images of the new limousine have just surfaced on the internet. The front styling seems to have drawn inspiration from the F30 3-series. The front bumper features chrome inserts, while illumination on the model seen here is provided by laser headlamps.

Great find ! Someone at BMW is going to get killed for such a massive goof up.
The car isn't due to be released for months as i understand.

I love the rear end but that interior does not belong to a car of this class ! How on earth is this interior any better than the current 7 and more importantly, how is it better than the new S and the facelifted A8 ?

The front end isn't striking enough IMHO

Maybe the police car was following the 7 to take spy shots of it and they ended up hitting each other or the BMW driver was testing safety of the new 7

Well, the true story however was reported to be according to local media was;

" The police vehicle was heading to a robbery which is why it had the acoustic and visual warnings activated, but even so the driver of the 2016 7-Series failed to see it crossing the intersection and caused a nasty crash which overturned the Sprinter. "

Good that they escaped only with minor injuries
