The extended ECO PRO includes the new coasting mode, is designed to decouple the combustion when it is overrunning at speeds 50 and 160 km/h (31 – 100 mph). With mode activated, the BMW 7 Series is subject to a far lower rate of as it freewheels along the road no engine braking effect and fuel consumption. Through driving, the kinetic energy up by the vehicle can be harnessed in this way to fuel savings of as much as per cent.

The coasting function is visualised for the driver’s benefit in the instrument cluster and the information and can also be deactivated if desired.

With the exception of the BMW 760i, all variants feature a proactive assistant that can be switched on via the ECO PRO Drawing on the latest navigation it recommends advance adjustment of the speed wîth the aim of saving (concept carz) These for more efficient driving are in the multifunctional instrument cluster and in the Control Display.

Typically the leader when it to introducing the latest and greatest BMW has to the 7 Series is a line of luxury that has been in production 1977. BMW’s flagship, the 7 is only offered as a sedan or limo. The 7 Series tends to the most futuristic technologies and offerings before the regular receives them.

Remaining to its original character from the the 7 Series has always been the choice for the wealthy car buyer in the for a roomy and elegant sedan. Set from the competition, the elite 7 continues to deliver the refinement and that the German automaker is known for.

The first 7 Luxury offering from BMW was the E23, and the replacement to the E3 large This first-generation 7 Series was to directly compete with the S-Class and was the largest sedan BMW had built. Riding a 110.0-inch the E23 measured 191 inches long, 71 wide and had a height of 56 inches.

over 285,029 models during its ten-year lifespan, the BMW E32 7 eventually replaced the E23 in 1986.

in Dingolfing, Germany, the E32 was launched in and ran until 1994. Riding on a wheelbase, the successor to the E23 was 2 inches 1.2 inches wider and 1 inch Weighing in at 3,790 pounds, the E32 offered exceptional luxurious a wine cooler, integrated and fax machines, double-glazing and traction system. The E32 also featured a that kept the windscreen firmly pressed to the glass at speeds by automatically increasing pressure.

This car was also in an ‘L’ extended wheelbase with more rear leg that the standard model.

engine options were all petrol like the earlier but by 1987 a V12 engine was introduced. The V12-equipped 7 Series had a 5.0-liter that pumped out 296 hp. The base in 735i and 735iL models was a 3.4-liter inline six-cylinder offered for most of the cycle. was a four-speed automatic transmission a five-speed manual was also

Replacing the E32 was the BWM 7 Series E38 in 1994. in Germany and now Toluca Mexico, the E38 on a 115-inch wheelbase, and had an increased of 196.2 inches, a width of inches and a height of 56.5 Launched on February 17, 1994, the E38 was the 7-series offered with a engine, and the first to offer five-speed automatic transmission.

by many 7 Series enthusiasts as the era’ for the 7 Series, the third featured much less to distract the driver and focused on the sleek classic lines BMW was for. In 1998 the Dynamic Control system debuted the entire lineup.

The third lineup included the standard-wheelbase sedan, the long-wheelbase 740iL and Powering the 740s was a 282 hp 4.4-liter V8 while the 750iL had a 5.4-liter V12 of 326 hp. All of the models came with a automatic transmission.

Showcased on the new E38 was headlights, and an integrated satellite system, for the first time by a European car manufacturer. Making its big debut in 1997, the E38 750i was in the James Bond movie, Never Dies. An E38 735i was featured in The Transporter, driven by Statham in the 2002 movie.

in 2001 was the fourth generation of the the E65. Proving to be the most version due to its extreme styling and user problems, the E65 still many records and became the 7-Series model ever, after it’s 2005 Considered by many to be the most version, the fourth generation the more traditional exterior cues and instead favored aggressive devilish looks.

BMW enthusiasts were unhappy the look and considered it abrasive and unrecognizable as a BMW 7 Series. A 2006 certainly helped the design, but the was definitely not winning any beauty at the time.

The first BMW to be powered by was the Hydrogen 7. This fourth would be the first time specific chassis codes used for each version, the E65 standing for the standard wheelbase the E66 as the long-wheelbase model, the E67 as the armored security model, and the E68 as the Hydrogen 7l. In there was only a V8 offered, but that year the lineup always include a eight- and engine mated to a six-speed transmission.

From 2002 2005 the 745i and 745Li equipped with a 325-hp V8 engine while the 750i and that succeeded them with a 360-hp 4.8-liter V8 The performance stayed mostly the for the 745’s and 750s since the were marginally heavier. a capability of 438hp, the 760Li had a V12 engine that was offered 2003 on.

From 2004 2006 BMW also offered a wheelbase 760i version.

The of the fourth-generation featured an all-in-one called iDrive, which climate, navigation and audio all in a console-mounted dial and a central Unfortunately the system required a learning curve that drivers found confusing. continues to be upgraded throughout the Though its design was radical, the 7 of this generation still an excellent driving experience and innovative features like shock absorbers, self-stiffening bars and self-leveling air springs.

in November 2008, the fifth of the 7-Series was a complete redesign and to be in production today. The first where all of the engines are turbocharged, the became the first 7-series with an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The only not turbocharged is the Asian-market 730i and variants. The five models this generation include the and long-wheelbase 740Li featuring a 3.0-liter inline-6 capable of 315 hp and 330 of torque.

The 750i and 750Li are by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 pumping out 400 hp and 450 of torque. Standard for the 750 models is a automatic and all-wheel-drive. The rear-drive 760Li is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 535 hp and 550 lb/ft of torque.
