The all-new BMW 7-Series (G11) has been spied once again and this time we get a better view of the Bavarian flagship model.

Despite the full body camouflage, upon closer inspection you will notice there are several differences compared to the outgoing model, starting at the front where there are enlarged kidney grilles and considerably sharper looking headlights. We could be wrong, but after looking at the front fenders near the side skirts we noticed a vertical gap which could be there to grant improved brake cooling.

Moving at the back, the central chrome strip not only interconnects the LED taillights but it appears to continue within the clusters. In addition, those big imposing exhaust pipes are nicely integrated in the rear bumper to create a cleaner look.

Overall, the 2016 BMW 7-Series styling will likely be influenced by the Vision Future Luxury and Gran Lusso Coupe concepts so it has all the premises to turn out into a beautiful and elegant full-size executive sedan.

An official reveal is expected at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September with a massive 200 kg (440 lbs) diet, new six-cylinder engines, a plug-in hybrid version with a four-cylinder engine and possibly with laser headlights.
