2023 BMW 7 Series prototype spottedJune 11, 2021
A camouflaged prototype of a BMW 7 Series executive sedan has been spotted on the Nürburgring race track. Based on the squeal of the tires, the 2023 model year has undergone a series of high-performance tests.
Spy shots of the next-generation BMW 7 Series first surfaced in early 2020, although those early test versions of the novelty wore the body of the current-generation model. Since then, the sedan has received a dense camouflage wrap, which it continues to wear today. In the latest spy video, the sedan is tested again at the Nurburgring, its design is still hidden from prying eyes by camouflage, but you can hear the squeal of tires when the driver presses the gas pedal hard.
The new 7 Series is a large luxury sedan and can be seen on the race track as the body rolls around corners accompanied by the sound of squealing tires.
The updated version of the sedan is expected to offer a ton of technology as it competes directly with the new Mercedes S-Class. Previous spy shots have shown the car with rear wing cameras, which suggest the car will offer advanced driver assistance systems and semi-autonomous systems.
Details of the lineup remain unknown, although those hoping the sedan will be offered with a V12 engine may be disappointed as the automaker has admitted that the days of the powerful engine are numbered. Low production volumes coupled with stricter emissions requirements make the business case for the V12 unprofitable. There will be an all-electric version called the i7, which can offer over 500 horsepower at the top of the range.
The test car seen in the video above appears to have temporary headlights and taillights, while BMW continues to attempt to flush the door handles with stickers. Until the appearance of the new 7th series, there are still a few months, perhaps it will be presented in the second half of 2022.
