After back in April German manufacturer BMW surprised us all with the covert release of the 760i and 760Li, today they got back to the 7 Series to preview the future 740d, as well as to let us now what the novelties on the 7 series will be this year. Set to be introduced this fall, the 740d will bring a brand new straight-six diesel engine, equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology.

The 740d will bring the number of diesel offered with the 7 Series to two. The new unit, which makes its debut on the 740d is made entirely of aluminum and develops no less than 306 hp and 600 Nm of torque. The TwinPower Turbo operates at an injection pressure of up to 2,000 bar.
