BMW has announced plans to introduce an "exclusive design study" at Auto China.

The company declined to release pictures but hinted the concept "provides a long-term outlook on its perception of modern luxury for the BMW brand." BMW went on to say the model will have an "outstanding exterior," a luxurious interior and pioneering technology. We can also expect lightweight construction and a "driving experience that is optimally tailored to the needs of all occupants."

That's not much to go on but previous reports have indicated the concept could preview a range-topping 9-Series. If the rumors pan out, the 9-Series will ride on the same platform that underpins as the next-generation 7-Series and will go into production in 2016.
