The 2016 BMW 7-Series unveiled last summer is making its way onto the Australian market, where the 730d entry-level will be available from $217,500.

The list continues with the 740i available at $224,200, the 740Li at $238,000, the 750i at $289,600 and the 750Li at $312.700. Both the 730d and 740i will go on sale this November, while the top of the line 750i versions will arrive at the beginning of next year.

In the engine department, the base 730d will be powered by a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel inline engine with 195 kW and 620 Nm of torque, with 6.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h.

The 2016 BMW 7-Series 740i versions will come with the 3.0-liter turbo petrol engine, but with a higher 240 kW and 450 Nm of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is done in 5.5 seconds in the 740i and 5.6 seconds in the 740Li.

The top 750i versions will feature a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 330 kW and 650 Nm of torque. Both the 750 and 750Li have an acceleration of 4.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h.

Apart the engine specifications, BMW Australia has also announced some styling cues, all 7-Series variants coming with a “Carbon Core” body, most of the parts compressing carbon fiber composites for increased driving capabilities.

Inside the cabin, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will abound with a lot of high-tech features, like Gesture Control, BMW Display Key for interactive screen and gestures, 3D surround-view camera, panorama view, voice control, active cruise control and more.
