2016 BMW 7 Series Leaked on Website Ahead of Debut

The 2016 BMW 7 Series has accidentally leaked ahead of its debut on June 10.

The German automaker’s Austrian arm revealed the 2016 BMW 7 Series on its website, accidentally showing an image of the car undisguised on its online configurator.

In Austria, the 2016 BMW 7 Series will launch with three engines with standard rear-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. The BMW 730d and 730d xDrive will feature a 3.0-liter inline-six diesel engine with 257 hp while a new standard gasoline 3.0-liter turbo inline-six will boast 317 hp in the 740i. At the top of the new BMW 7 Series range will be a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 churning 444 hp in the 750i model.

Wheel options will range from 17 to 20 inch with the luxury sedan initially offered in 13 different exterior colors: Alpine White, Black College, Black Sapphire, Carbon Black, Glacier Silver, Cashmere Silver, Sophisto Grey, Imperial Blue, Magellan Grey, Singapore Grey, Mineral White, Arctic Grey Brilliant Effect and Jatoba. Packages that were revealed on the configurator include M-Sport Package, Driving Assistance Plus, adaptive full LED headlights, Pure Excellence interior and Alcantara headliner.

Pricing was also revealed for the Austrian market, with the 730d starting from €100,445 ($111,530) and the 740i from €107,690 ($119,585), while the range-topping 750i xDrive is €137,935 ($153,100). It’s unlikely that the prices will convert directly when the 2016 BMW 7 Series is announced for the U.S. market.
