BMW blog have recently been given the chance to drive a prototype model of the new and heavily revised 2016 BMW 7 Series.

2016 BMW 7 Series prototype test drive


The new 2016 BMW 7 series is the first car to use Carbon Fibre reinforced plastic in it’s body construction in combination with the industry standard materials of steel, aluminium and plastic.


This is the same as the tech used in the BMW i3 & I8 that is now filtering into other models in BMW’s vast range.

Overall this is likely the future of standard construction in cars due to the reduction in weight whilst also increasing the strength and the overall body stiffness.

Again here we see BMW leading the way in their vision of producing the Ultimate Driving Machine.
