An entry-level 720i version of the BMW 7-Series appeared on the company's German website but was taken down shortly.

Earlier this week BMW introduced a diesel 740Ld Xdrive in United States and now it seems the Bavarian marque has prepared a more affordable variant for its flagship in Germany. The model in question is a 720i version which was listed on BMW's German website but was pulled down very fast, yet not quick enough as a Jalopnik reader managed to grab a screenshot.

The engine in question is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter which in the DE-spec 320i (xDrive including) delivers 184 HP (135 kW) or 170 HP (125 kW) in the 320i EfficientDynamics Edition.

At the moment, the cheapest 7-Series money can buy in Germany is the 730d priced from 74,200 EUR so the 720i would be closer to the 70,000 EUR mark.
