BMW 7 Series

G11 7 Series

1 Nov 2015

BMW’s sixth-generation 7 Series launched in October 2015, and was touted as the first production car to incorporate carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) in its body structure.

Code-named the G11 (and G12 in long wheelbase form), the 7 Series’ powertrain line-up consists of a 4.4 litre V8 and a pair of new engines from BMW's modular B-series engine architecture – two 3.0 litre inline-six engines in petrol and diesel form.

Prices rose across the board the 730d is up $11,130, the 740i $11,925 and the LI $10,725, while the 750i is up $6670 and the Li $13,070. All variants, according to BMW, received upgrades over the previous F01/F02 car in excess of $20,000 per vehicle.

Three months after the first G11 and G12 7 Series variants arrived, BMW launched the V8-powered flagship 750i and longer wheelbase 750Li.

The top-of-the-range pair were treated to more generous levels of standard equipment as well as a mighty 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8, which produced 330kW and 650Nm of torque – enough to blast the large luxury sedan to 100km/h from zero in a sportscar-like 4.7 seconds.
