But the construction and implementation of the 7 seems far advanced. And I'm sure it'll (err.... it SHOULD) blow it away in driving dynamics as the S is a good land yacht, but that's it.

It looks like June 10th is the date of the public unveil of new 7series!

Based on the engineering, this car is gonna dump all over the blahzay new S (looking like a scaled up C certainly isn't helping it even in the face of BMW's own "same sausage" likenesses) Class.
