Exterior Design

Exclusive appearance with a strong character: the new Adaptive LED Headlights of the BMW 7 Series unite a striking form with dynamic function – new kidney grille slats and chrome accents on the front apron further enhance the distinctive impression, with the large air inlets reinforcing the muscular overall effect.

The aptly named Air Curtains channel the airstream on the front apron and front wheels. As a consequence, the drag resistance – and hence fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as well – are effectively reduced.

Short overhangs, the long bonnet and the rear-set greenhouse reveal the classical proportions of a dynamic BMW sedan in its most luxurious form, particularly in the case of the long version. Indicator lamps in the exterior mirrors reliably display any changes in course.

Elegance and power attain perfection: at the rear, discreet changes in the contours, repositioned reflectors as well as intricate chromium elements round off the impressively masterful overall picture presented by the BMW 7 Series.


Adaptive LED Headlights.

The Adaptive LED Headlights essentially shape the unmistakeable appearance of the BMW 7 Series. The accent line with indicator function cuts into the top of characteristic light rings – thus redefining the expression of the entire front section.

The distinctive form of the new BMW double-round headlights follows intelligent function: daytime running lights as well as dipped and high beam shine from the three-dimensional rings. LED lights illuminate the road with daylight intensity and rich contrast, while the cones of the Adaptive Headlights dynamically follow every turn in the road.

When bends are taken slowly, the integrated cornering lights enclosed by an elegant chrome strip automatically light up the area at the side of the vehicle. The BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant) offers best possible visibility for the driver without obstructing others. A mechanism inside the headlights intelligently masks areas with the potential for dazzling other road users.


Colours and wheels.

Grandeur and perfection emanate a natural radiance. In the case of the BMW 7 Series Sedan, they do so especially stylishly in the new metallic exterior colours of Glacier Silver, Midnight Blue and Havanna.

There are colours that signal superiority: the new external colours of the BMW 7 Series Sedan are three such examples that boldly underline the elegant styling of the exterior design. Havanna Brown with metallic effect has intensive depth, creating an elegant and modern effect. The very exclusive shade of Midnight Blue metallic with a slight petrol hue underpins the masterful presence, whereas Glacier Silver metallic with its very bright and pure shade of silver makes the bodyshell look as if made of polished aluminium.

Aluminium in its most attractive form also opens up new options for the wheel housings: the 18” V-spoke 425 and 19” V-spoke 426 light-alloy wheels unite precise exclusivity with outstanding driving characteristics – and thus extend the comprehensive selection of rims with perfection in styling.
