The 2009 BMW’s 7-series test mule was caught in camo. A longer wheelbase, partnered with a wider track, will be utilized to keep with BMW’s handling ethos, while new engine choices, including a hybrid and twin-turbo V8 diesel will provide motivation. A new ZF eight-speed gearbox is almost certain, along with a revised iDrive system and several new safety features.

Look out for the refresh in 2009, with a full redesign sometime next decade.
