It’s been over two years since the sixth-generation G12 BMW 7 Series first debuted. Now, seen making rounds for the first time is what looks like the facelifted version of Munich’s finest luxo-barge, camouflaged at just the right places to hide all the new aesthetic tweaks.

However, the keen-eyed among you can immediately tell apart those new tail lights, this time featuring sleeker graphics and circular brake lights in the outer enclosure. In the lower extremities sit quad tailpipes. different to the dual outlets fitted to our 740Le xDrive. The quad pipes might likely denote that the mule is a 750i variant, which is powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

As for the camouflaged bits, it’s likely that the front and rear bumpers will be restyled. Also new are the triple-five spoke alloys, although this may or may not make it to production. The headlamps, however, are clearly non-production units.

Currently, the 7 Series line-up in Malaysia is made up of just one variant – the 740Le xDrive. It’s powered by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo mill, which receives propulsion assistance from an electric motor to produce a combined system output of 326 PS and 500 Nm of torque.

Performance figures for the 740Le xDrive are a 0-100 km/h time of 5.3 seconds (0.3 seconds faster than the 740Li), while top speed is 250 km/h (pure EV up to 140 km/h). Watch our first drive video of it here.
