2016 BMW 7 Series Rendering Looks Like a Wild Stab in the Dark

A lot of people are waiting to see exactly what BMW will brag with once the new 7 Series comes out. On the technical front we know a thing or two but when it comes to the design of the thing we’re absolutely in the dark.
The problem is that BMW previewed the car with the Vision Future Luxury Concept and a lot of people don’t know just how much of it will make it into production and how much will be carried over from the current model.

The truth of the matter is a lot of people are hoping for a completely new design. The current F01 model is no longer conceived as desirable due to its styling cues that are starting to show their age, the car being nearly 7 years old by now.

On the other hand, the Future Vision Luxury Concept is a bit too far on the ‘forward thinking’ side of things so a lot of executives looking to buy it might not be allured by its lines and creases.

To top everything off, the spyshots we’ve seen so far seem to be pointing more towards an evolutionary design rather than a complete overhaul, at least towards the front of the car.

We’re hoping that at least the beautiful taillights of the concept will be kept along for the production car as they look absolutely stunning. Rumor has it that Organic LED technology could be used to animate them which would be a huge step up and a feature not available on the new S-Class which is its eternal rival.

Overall, the body will be comprised of a lot of lightweight materials, from CFRP and aluminum to light alloys and high strength steel to also make sure that the occupants are safe as well as comfortable.

Speaking of occupants, they will get an array of new functions, from augmented reality on the road to multiple screens with touch sensitive technology that communicate between them.

It all sounds all too enticing but how much will it actually come to fruition and how will all of this work in the end? We’ll just have to wait for the Frankfurt Motor Show to tell us.

In the meantime, the rendering done by Jerry Alvarez for BMWBlog seems to be pretty spot on in the headlight department (that will have LED technology as standard and laser lights as optional extras) but suffers in all other key areas. Keep your hopes up though! You never know these days...
