Top standards and demands newly defined: Introducing the fifth generation of
the BMW 7 Series Luxury Saloon, the world's most successful manufacturer of
premium cars is setting the benchmark once again, proving how sheer driving
pleasure and the pleasure of exclusive generosity may be perfectly combined in
the ultimate symbiosis.
The new BMW 7 Series is the result of perfection in design and supreme
engineering on the drivetrain, on the chassis, in terms of safety systems,
driver assistance, and comfort. And at the same time the sophisticated but very
modern interior proves that both driving and riding in the new BMW 7 Series is
a truly impressive experience the driver and all passengers will enjoy at all
The high-performance and outstandingly efficient engines as well as the
suspension technology of the new BMW 7 Series are both quite unique in the
luxury saloon segment. Two petrol engines with Twin Turbo technology and High
Precision Injection - the 300 kW/407 hp V8 in the top-of-the-range BMW 750i and
the 240 kW/326 hp straight-six in the new BMW 740i - as well as a newly
developed straight-six diesel with common-rail fuel injection, piezo-injectors
and an aluminium crankcase with maximum output of 180 kW/245 hp in the new BMW
730d are available right from the start upon the introduction of the car. All
power units offer the highest standard of efficiency in their respective class
and comply in full with the EU 5 emission standard. The new BMW 7 Series comes
as standard with Dynamic Damper Control including Dynamic Driving Control
operated by the touch of a button on the centre console. Important options are
the Integral Active Steering together with rear axle steering as a function of
driving conditions (a technology absolutely unique the world over), as well as
Dynamic Drive anti-roll stability.
The new BMW 7 Series also introduces the new generation of BMW's trendsetting
iDrive control system. A newly developed Controller with direct selection
buttons and a high-resolution 10.2-inch Control Display facilitate intuitive
management, control and activation of numerous functions.
BMW's new iDrive also offers ideal conditions for unrestricted use of the
internet in the car offered by BMW as the world's first manufacturer in the
context of BMW ConnectedDrive. The clear structure of the cockpit dominated by
the instrument cluster in innovative black panel technology gives the driver
absolute supremacy and unrestricted control of his car at all times. The driver
assistance systems featured for the first time in the new BMW 7 Series and
exclusive the world over include BMW's new Night Vision with detection of
individual persons, a camera-based Speed Limit Indicator, Lane Change Warning
and Cruise Control with Stop & Go, an active Brake Assistant and a proximity
warning function when approaching another vehicle from behind.
Both the "regular" and the long-wheelbase versions of BMW's new Luxury Saloon -
with the latter available right from the start in the guise of the BMW 750Li
and the BMW 740Li - come with the longest wheelbase in their segment. In
practice, this means particularly generous space and roominess within the car.
A wide range of lightweight features - including the doors, roof, engine
compartment lid, side panels and the engine crankcase made of aluminium -
enhance both the efficiency and the agility of the new BMW 7 Series. And
through its comprehensive safety concept alone, BMW's new Luxury Saloon
guarantees maximum occupant safety in all conceivable types of collision.
