    1331906400

    The 2013 BMW 7 Series has an appointment for some cosmetic surgery, according to a report in Car & Driver. The restyle will be minimal, with detail changes around the fascia going just far enough to let other 7 Series owners know that you have the latest model.

    1260806280

    LA 2009: BMW prices the ActiveHybrid 7, starting at $103,125
    1259867160

    Hybrids have always demanded an extra price over their competitors, but that is especially true when we get into the premium segment. Whether it's the Lexus LS600h or the Cadillac Escalade hybrid, it seems automakers are averse to subsidizing the addition of electrically enhanced drivetrains. The same apparently holds true for BMW, which priced its ...

    1253084280

    BMW isn't taking any chances with its reputation for dynamics with the 7 Series Active Hybrid. To its 449-hp and 479-lb-ft 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 heart it adds a 60-pound, 35-cell lithium-ion battery in the boot. The battery doesn't take too much away from the trunk since it replaces the rear-seat air-conditioning unit from the standard 7. The battery ...
