BMW’s upcoming 7 Series redesign is incredibly important for the German automaker. With attractive, technologically advanced rivals like the new Mercedes-Benz S-class, and potent performance challengers like Jaguar XJR, the 2016 7 Series needs to raise the bar in terms of style, efficiency, and driving dynamics. Now that BMW has released its list of technical upgrades for the sixth generation flagship, we can see if Bimmer has done enough. One of the most significant differences from the current car is the loss of 130 kilos/286 pounds thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The construction of the redesigned 7 Series was inspired by the heavy use of CFRP on BMW’s i-series models.
