Replacing the old giant of a luxury saloon BMW lovingly dubbed the 7-Series, is another, well, giant of a luxury saloon sporting the same design as the older 7 but if its safe to say, a different look. Bigger kidney grills that ape the nostrils of a pissed off hog are new to the 2009 7-Series, so are the butterfly wing tail lights but if you haven’t noticed, these are all taken off BMWs design study cars, the grills are off the concept CS, the tail lights are a spin off from the 5-Series facelift, the stance and ride height of the car seem very X6, and of course, there’s always that Bangle touch.
Come the seventh day of the seventh, BMW will officially unveil the 7 to the world, and to coincide with all those 7s will be the announcement of the birth of the M7, yes, really, an M7. A twin turbo’d V12 monster that will take on the Mercedes S65 and the yet to be launched Audi A8. Now you have every reason to look forward to next Monday, but for now, these pictures are the closest any of us are going to get to the real thing, sadly.
