A long wheelbase version of the new generation BMW 7-Series has been spied while it was being tested out on the Nurburgring.
The “Green Hell” has become a true benchmark over these past few years for all car manufacturers across the globe and despite this, it still had its fair share of rough times. The newest model to be caught on camera in action on the famous German track is the BMW 7-Series, in its new generation, and in the long wheelbase version. The flagship sedan was wearing a lot of camouflage on its body but the guy holding the camera managed to get close to it and filmed its interior design for the very first time.
Sadly there isn’t much to be seen in the cabin too because the dashboard has been camouflaged. On the other hand, the flagship model will be riding on the new 35up platform which will use high-strength steel, carbon fiber reinforced plastic, magnesium and aluminum in its construction and this is said to help the model save about 200 kg (440 lbs). The engine options might include upgraded 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder, a new 4.0 liter V8 and the 6.0 liter V12. The entry-level version with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder is rumored too, along with a plug-in hybrid. An M7 is out of the question as the M Division has no plans of putting it into production.
