Pictures of the 2023 BMW 7 Series and i7 direct from Olympia Park

The global unveiling of the new BMW 7 Series and i7 continues today with live images from Olympiapark, in the heart of Munich. In these new live photos, we see both the combustion-powered 7 Series and the first-ever electric 7 Series. Just like the cars shown in New York City, the two 7-Series models were light gray and frosted black paint. The seventh-generation BMW 7 Series has been lengthened by 130 mm to 5,391 mm, with the wheelbase extended by 5 mm to 3,215 mm. It is also 48mm wider (at 1950mm) and 51mm higher (at 1544mm) to provide significantly more headroom. It is worth noting that the tracks are wider than before, by 47 mm in the front (up to 1665 mm) and 4 mm in the rear (up to 1650 mm).

The two models shown in Munich are the BMW 760i and the BMW i7 xDrive60. The latter is powered by twin electric motors, made from absolutely rare earth materials. Maximum power is 536 horsepower and 549 pound-feet of torque, giving it the same horsepower as a BMW 760i. According to BMW, acceleration from 0 to 60 mph occurs in 4.5 seconds, and the i7’s top speed is 149 mph. , which is said to be capable of reaching a range of up to 300 miles. This range number is an estimate from BMW, based on EPA testing procedures.

The BMW 760i’s larger 4.4-liter V8 generates 536 hp and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). It only needs 4.2 seconds to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill and has the same electronic speed limiter programmed to sprint at 155 mph (250 km/h).

Furthermore, we can see the Series 7 cut out in the images below, featuring red and gray paintwork. The seventh series has not only automatic doors that resemble Rolls-Royce, but also expensive two-tone paints that resemble a model from Goodwood. In fact, turn on the i7 configurator and choose a single two-tone paint and it will set you back a whopping €12,000. Keep in mind that the G70 isn’t the first BMW of recent times to get two colors. Last year, China received a special edition Cashmere Silver metallic / Aventurine Red for China based on the M760i model that is limited to 25 cars.

In the US, the BMW 760i xDrive 2023 starts at $113,600 + $995, and the BMW i7 xDrive60 sells for $119,300 + $995. The US market launch will begin in the fourth quarter of 2022.
