BMW Malaysia has launched a new website to tease the arrival of its all-new G11 BMW 7 Series. However, the website, which is split into three different sections – Craftsmanship, Innovation and Showcase, does not give much in the way of details pertaining to the premium sedan.
Visitors of the site will be greeted by a silhouette of the G11 7 Series along with the words “The Future Of Luxury Is Coming Soon.” No dates were listed on the site. Additionally, the only clickable part on the site takes visitors on a trip to explore the level of craftsmanship involved in the making of each BMW 7 Series.
The G11 7 Series has already been sighted on a trailer in Malaysia back in November 2015. Based on the undisguised spyshots, it appears that Malaysians will have access to the 740Li (technically the G12, in long-wheelbase form).
Should that be the case, the 740Li comes with 19-inch wheels and the Design Pure Excellence package. Under the hood, one will find a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six petrol engine with 326 PS and 450 Nm of torque, paired to an eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission.
BMW’s latest flagship will also feature a Carbon Core construction, where a combination of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), magnesium, aluminium and steel is used, resulting in weight savings by as much as 130 kg from its predecessor.
The new 7 Series also gets a slew of tech, including the new touchscreen iDrive 5.0 with gesture control interface. Given that the site also contains an image of the new Display Key in the “Innovation” section, we reckon that the touchscreen key will be offered here as well.
For those who will spend more of their time being chauffeured, we’ve already prepared a comparison between the lounge seats found in the G11 BMW 7 Series and its chief rival, the W222 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which you can see here. Take your pick.
