New 2016 BMW 7 Series Sheds Weight and Adds Serious Tech

BMW unveils the new 7 Series

BMW’s top end 7 Series is looking to up the ante with their luxury sedan introducing technologies in the areas of lightweight design, powertrains, chassis, operating systems, intelligent connectivity and interior ambience, particularly nice and comfortable for those long-distance drives. Incorporating the use of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) in the body structure helps to reduce the weight of the new BMW 7 Series models by up to 130 kilograms compared to their previous-generation counterparts. At the centre of it all is the body structure with Carbon Core, a product of the transfer of technology from the development of BMW i cars. The new BMW 7 Series is the first car in its segment in which industrially manufactured CFRP combines with steel and aluminium.
