BMW 7 Series Becomes Vornsteiner VR7

Vornsteiner has chosen the BMW 7 Series F01 and F02 (the normal and the long wheelbase verions of the luxury saloon) as its latest targets, as the tuner has released a modification pack for the cars, comprising of an aerodynamics package and bespoke rims.

The tuning program bears the “VR7” name. At the front of the car, we find a add-on front spoiler, that has both an aerodynamic role (it increases the front end downforce) and an esthetic one. The rear of the VR7 features an air difuser that "perfectly embodies Vorsteiner's traditional of blending purpose, function, and distinctive style.”

The tuning company is offering a bespoke set of rims for the 7 series, called V-102. These measure 21 x 9 inches for the front axle and 21 x 10.5 inches for the rear one. The v-102 is offered in multiple finishes, including brushed aluminum, chrome, gunmetal, black, silver, textured black and textured gunmetal. As we are talking about a tuner, clients can opt for a custom finish that perfectly suites their taste. The rims feature anodized aluminum carbon fiber center caps.

Vornsteiner is showcasing the VR7 on the 750i model. The vehicle has been equipped with an H&R sports suspension system, so it rides 48 mm lower than the standard model. The luxury saloon’s engine has kept its factory specifications. So, under the hood we can find a 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 engine that develops 408 HP at 5,500 rpm and 440 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. The powerplant pushes the car past the 62 mph mark in 5.2 seconds (5.3 seconds for the long wheelbase version) and offers it a top speed of 160 mph (electronically limited).
