Most BMW fans are still waiting for the German car maker to get around to building the next 7 Series.
And while they are busy with other stuff like the new i range and reworking the rest of the car lineup, enthusiasts are busy dreaming up variants for the 7 Series.
Rumors say that we should expect the vehicle to reach us sometime around 2016, and that it will make full use of the advances BMW made in the industry. This refers mainly to their work with carbon fiber, work that is showcased in their new vehicle the i3, which has a full CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced polymer) passenger cell.
Besides the obvious weight reduction, the use of CFRP will also enable the German car maker to make use of their 2.0 liter engine in this model, too, without it seeming so preposterous.
Of course, lightweight materials won’t be the only feature present on the new 7 Series, but for now no details are leaked. What we do have is the interesting rendering of the future 7 Series BMW.
