The current BMW 7-series has been on the market since 2002 with a facelift in 2005. We have seen spy-shots of a mule of the new car about half a year ago, now here are the first shots of a real prototype of the next generation.

The current BMW 7-series has been on the market since 2002 with a facelift in 2005. We have seen spy-shots of a mule of the new car about half a year ago, now here are the first shots of a real prototype of the next generation 7-series, the company’s top-of-the-line model.

The test car is featuring a completely new front end similar to the 6-Series styling. It’s clear the current model’s extravagant design will be toned down for the new one in order to avoid the harsh critics received upon the introduction of the current 7-series in 2002. The position of the headlights and turn signals show that the next 7-series will have low mounted wrap-around headlights and a wide grille as well as a sleeker body and a more elegant overall appearance.

The new 7-series is not expected to be released before the end of 2007.
