Officially Official: 2009 BMW 7 Series




Click above for a high-res gallery of the new 7 Series

BMW has officially announced the details pertaining to the 5th generation 7 Series, so let's cut right to the chase. In Europe, there are five models arriving on the market in November of this year: the 730d; the 740i and Li; and the 750i and Li. The latter two are powered by the same twin-turbo 4.4L V8 that debuted in the X6. In the U.S.-market 7 Series, the turbo eight is rated at 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, and it is the sole engine option being made available. If you want a BMW 7 Series in America, it will be a 750.

Europeans get more choices. The 730d's 3.0L diesel I6 pumps out 245 horses with nearly 400 lb-ft of torque. Despite the grunt, it boasts a combined fuel economy number of 32.6 U.S. miles per gallon (39.2 Imperial). The 740 models are powered by the now-familiar 3.0L twin-turbo gasoline engine. In the 7, the 3.0TT's power output is 326 horses and 332 lb-ft -- enough to hustle the 740Li from 0 to 62 mph in six seconds flat. All the engines are connected to a six-speed automatic. Follow the jump for more details and BMW's official press release.

I hate the new Lexus 7er
seriously the car is so lexused-out
damn
who thought out that design? It's awful!
The current 7er was at least unconventional
this car looks plain Japanese

the wheels came off at BMW when they appointed Bangle and went for mass production.
An e36 is better built than current models.Wonder how many of the current generation will still be on the road in twenty years time.RIP build quality.A Lexus it better put together than a new 3 series.

First gen Lexus IS300 headlights...original. It could also use some larger kidney grills, they only take up half the entire frontal surface area.

I agree with Denyo77, I took my 06 750i in for some light servicing just after the 09 came out and of course the dealership tried to get me to trade mine in and take the new model. I looked it over inside and out and the only thing that I thought was nice was the change in the headlights (added LED's, and possibly the exhaust (just like the Lexus 460). Other than that I told the dealership manager that I thought the vehicle took a turn back in comfort for the driver especially in a vehicle that has such advanced electronic technology. For example - moving the seat controls from the center console, where they were visible to the side of the seat (dumb), moving the shift selector to the center console and placing it on the passengers side of the console (stupid), twin turbos installed with a reduced engine size to gain a little over 40hp (rediculous a chip can do that and of course all 7 owners know thats all we need are more mechanical wear parts on the vehicle!) and not to mention numerous other features that were not good for the pilot. Lame, Lame, Lame!
