Fake !

These are all artist impressions... most of them are shots of the current 5 series, they didnt even bother changing the alloys or background from the orignal pic. Also notice the end of the rear bumper and the exhaust is unchanged from the current E60.

Must say this is a baddd photoshop job.

I like it. It looks neat and fresh. Interior is good not something spectacular. Alloys look fantastic as always in Beemers.

They are not fake,they are leaked.Go to GCZ,even people working for BMW(EnI on GCZ) are not saying they are fake.I'd love to hear your reaction if these are not fake.The official media launch is 7th July 08.

Well whether they are fake or not. The car is good. Though i would still prefer the current model of the 7 Series over this.

To me, the front end treatment, specially the nose looks ugly. BMW usually gets their designs right, looks like it wasnt to be for this one.

The second half of the car looks so much like the current Lexus GS. Hmmm. Still, the presence can only be felt when you see it in real. Lets see.

the back is hideous atleast in these pictures, the current 7 back was the best in the business thats y S had to copy it..

but this looks like some jap or korean crap from the back..

a step backwards in some most angles..too bad i was looking forward to this beast..

Totally missing the wow factor.
Looks like a toned down 5 series from the front and a Toyota Avalon in the back. Once bitten twice shy for BMW.

Interior is neat!

Ya they have ruined the rear design, looks worse than the last one.

I quite like the interiors though, especially the center console and the dashboard as a whole.

Is this the long wheelbase version because there appears to be a lot of legroom at the back. Or it might just be bigger than the last one.

It look good & freshened, but not a great leap forward in design. The interior also is good, but lack a classy touch for a top end luxury sedan. It look as if Beemer brought back the driver consentrating dash of earlier models. In total a better & fresh looking 7, but not at all a threat for the S-class.
