Hit the jump for video of the 2009 BMW 7-Series

The new BMW 7 Series has undergone a makeover, with less polarizing looks and a healthy dose of Concept CS all around. It has only been a couple days since we got our first official eyeful of the new Bavarian top dog, and now we've got video of the 750i and 730d. Hit the jump to seeand hear the oil and petrol powered Bimmers as they tackle the twisties and pose for the cameras. There is no soundtrack, no fancy graphics, just the redone 7 Series. Enjoy!

      I agree. I think the new S Class looks miles better, ditto the Audi S8

      The E38 was a fantastic looking car. Despite its size, it looked like it was moving standing still. It devoured highway miles, yet was remarkable responsive. You could break the law without even realizing it ("I swear officer, I thought I was going 55! How did you clock me doing 90?").

      BMW has lost their bearings. This new 7 series is completely plagiarized. It looks like the bastard child of an 460SL and a Volvo. Too much tech, too much weight, and not enough soul. Look back to the E38 to understand what a BMW luxury sedan should be.

      From the firewall rearward, this 7 Series "is" beautiful.
      Unfortunately, to me, the frontend SCREAMS Hyundai and KIA (their fullsize effort).

      There really is nothing to applaud this car for, in terms of design. I can only describe this new 7 Series as evolution that took a downward step from the previous version.

      The gigantic kidneys make the car look desperately antagonistic while, awkwardly, the front end comes off as anonymous at the same time. The side profile is nothing to speak of. In fact, on the side profile, the rear emanates cues from the new Corolla.

      BMW has enough of a reputation that it will sell just about anything with four doors attached to it. Yet this rendition is not worthy of the 7 Series badge, in my opinion.

      Hard to take beauty shots with such an ugly subject.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You call the current generation 7 a 'simple' design?!?!

        Yeah sure, the front end is a blunt mess due to European regulations causes; but compared to the dovetail Bangle end, I'd take this in a heartbeat.

        I'm surprised you say "bland." But it is, actually rather bland in parts. Before this redesign, the 7 series was more simple and yet it never looked bland at all.

        I would have never thought that the 1 series design was foreshadowing the future design of the 7. I'm very disappointed. Darn...

        I'm somewhat of a bmw fanboy, but I have to agree with you

        this new design is extremely bland
      • 6 Years Ago
      Personally, the car looks ordinary and plain. The power plant is impressive but just a plain, big BMW. BORING! In my opinion. You dont need to clear 100,000 a year to know that!

      don't get me wrong, I love this car, especially the inside. But does anybody else see shades of Volvo? its not a bad thing but its also not a good thing
        • 6 Years Ago
        Ditto
        • 6 Years Ago
        I do... Around the hood. The lines in the design are too exaggerated.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Bmw's all look the same to me, all years, all models.
      I'd take a benz over a bmw any day.
      Although, i prefer to drive neither, those two just seem to be the competition for each other.

      Please BMW, don't mess up the 6!!

      it seems like MR. Bangle already prison break.....

      bad english, sorry....................

      The current 7-series is hideous enough, but somehow BMW managed to make it even more hideous.

      About the interior, it's as blend as the current model.

      I used to love BMW cars. Now I stay away from them just because of their hideous looks.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It wasn't a bad design until I saw the video ... that front end is awkward. Is it just me or have there been very few exciting model releases recently? Alot of new cars have lost something ... and it's good looks. Is it the pedestrian crash regulations that are forcing all these awkward looking front ends ... like on this thing and the new Accord? What gives?
