Watch: 2016 BMW 7 Series Teased

Video previews the 7's laser headlight array and "Carbon Core" badge ahead of June 10 debut

In a new teaser video showing a few brief glimpses of its new luxury sedan, BMW announced that the 2016 BMW 7 Series will be officially unveiled on June 10.

While the video does not reveal anything we have not learned from BMW before, it does give us a small preview of what is to come. We see a glimpse of the 7 Series’ laser headlight array, which was first debuted on the BMW i8 hybrid sports car, and a quick “Carbon Core” badge, signifying the next-gen 7 Series’ extensive use of carbon fiber in various chassis components.

The next 7 Series, which we drove in prototype form (pictured) in April, is slated to shed close to 286 pounds over the current generation car, with the transmission tunnel, braces for the C- and B-pillars, parcel shelf, and the roof crossmembers all composed of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

The 2016 BMW 7 Series sedan's powertrain options won't change too much from the current 7 Series, with the exception of a new six-cylinder engine for the base 740i. The video shows a 750i badge, which will likely carry some variant of BMW’s ubiquitous twin-turbo V-8 under the hood, and a top-shelf 760i V-12 model is likely as well.

Take a look at the 2016 BMW 7 Series teaser video below, and look for the official debut on June 10.
