Next-gen BMW 7-Series LWB spied

The next generation of the BMW 7-Series will give birth to a new body style of the flagship sedan, the long wheelbase.

Mercedes-Benz has developed a lot of variants of the new-gen S-Class but its main rival, BMW, isn’t giving up on the battle as the car manufacturer is currently developing a long wheelbase version of the next 7-Series generation. The model in question has been caught on camera by our spy photographers while it was being tested out in a hot climate, in the United States, and if it has caught your attention, you should know that it will be introduced sometimes in 2016.

The new BMW 7-Series will be adopting a structure which is combining aluminum, steel and carbon fiber, making it lighter by almost 600 pounds than the current version, which is using a steel monocoque construction. As far as the engine lineup goes, this will include a new six-cylinder inline diesel unit along with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain, which will be using a 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol burner backed up by an electric motor. Another hybrid version will come with the 3.0 liter six-cylinder unit. BMW will also be offering the new 9-speed automatic transmission, signed by ZF, but the current 8-speed will still be available for the model.
