Here's what this legend will look like if you ask me. Just with 4 doors.

The new car will look more like a concept car than a production car, and nothing in the market will touch it.

Audi is already re-doing the A/S8 to have a good go at it.

The Euro-luxury sport sedan wars are coming soon.

I like, but not sure BMW will the that aggressive with the change in 2016. Lets hope.

That's the Gran Lusso concept.

I personally can't see BMW being that ballsy with the design of their new flagship, but I certainly hope I'm wrong.

If this design had any indication of being the new 7, it would DECIMATE the new S.

Yep... Seen this concept already and that is wishful thinking IMO to believe BMW will go this route with the 7. Hopefully I'm wrong.

I'm telling you right now, and you know you heard it here first, this is the direction where they are going.

For starters, the mistake made on the current F01/F02 hood-grill line is going to be undone by making the hood a seamless one piece hood, that meets the kidney gril. As you know, currently, the hood comes down to the front part of the bumber and is seperated by a hood-bumper boundary, which was against past BMW designs. In fact, it made the call look ugly and very pig-nosey looking. So, that's going to be fixed.

Here are some renderings: http://www.forcegt.com/news/2016-bmw...r-and-sharper/

The Gran Lusso design will carry over to the new 7 series, and it will blow your mind. You'll see the first concept of this generation 7 at next year's international auto show in Frankfurt.

Will there be a RWS in this aggressive new vision of the Seven?

If BMW hope to even sell 1, there better be and it better be personally engraved with my name on it for all 7's!

Incredible looking car. You can count on BMW to dummy down the innovative appearance, and to include prehistoric rims.

It's too bad because that prototype looks fantastic. I will bet anyone a dozen donuts it is not "the" 2016 car. If it is, I'd buy it provided they add two more doors.

Every Production car sucks compared to the concept.I get disappointed every time a company drops a concept.I really hope BMW management has the guts to stop watering down this concept .If the production model is similar to the gran lusso concept,BMW will kick the balls and ass of the competition into stratosphere.

That back shot reminds me of the new Dodge Challenger. Am I the only one feeling that resemblance. Other than that, love the other shots!

If BMW sticks with their new naming designations, this would be the 850.

Highly doubt the new 7 series will look that concept. It might borrow some stuff from it but it's way to out there and BMW doesn't have the balls to make their flagship that brash. It would be nice if they did.
