2016 BMW 7-Series Tech Secrets Revealed in New Video

BMW’s all-new, sixth-generation 7-Series flagship sedan is almost here, with the reveal scheduled to take place this summer before an official world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Today, however, car enthusiasts can get an early look at many of the technological elements that will feature in the new car, including lightweight multi-material construction, new modular engines, a new gesture control interface and even some autonomous driving features. The most radical change being made to the 7-Series line of cars with this new model is the construction methods and materials being used. The new 7-Series has been designed around a modular platform code-named the 35up. This platform will form the basis of most of BMW’s models going forward and includes carbon fiber-reinforced plastic in its construction.
