Other likely powertrains that would come along in the future would be the usual mix of V8 and V12 turbocharged units. Interestingly, BMW's new 2.0-litre petrol and diesel turbo units might find their way into the car soon. Expect hybrid variants to come too.
Looking sleeker now front and back, it is looks more evolutionary than revolutionary for us. Not a bad thing for us actually. Laserlight headlights first seen on the i8, features in this car. Said to be 1,000 times more powerful than LED headlights while consuming around 70 percent less energy, this is likely to be an option on the new 7 Series.
Inside the evolutionary theme continues, with the dash looking similar to the the outgoing car. Elsewhere, the car is said to lose as much as 200kg compared to the old car and you can bet that the new car would ride and handle as well as its predecessor.
