The latest prototype of the next redesigned BMW 7-Series has been spotted on the streets of Munich and our favorite artist Christian Schulte has produced these latest renderings to give us a better idea of what we can see next year. As you can see from these latest photo renderings, the next BMW 7-Series will have a new grille with a large BMW-style kidney (taking hints from the CS Concept) and a wider and lower hood for a sportier look. The sedan appears to be a little bigger than the current generation.
Sources say that the next-generation BMW 7-Series will have an even more elegant look than ever before. The interior of the 2009 BMW 7-Series will also see major upgrades. Rumors are floating of a new iDrive system with a more user friendly navigation system incorporating Google Maps and iPhone connectivity. The gear lever will return to the center instead of sitting next to the indicators.

Engine specifications will start from a 3.0 liter engine producing up to 272 horsepower and a new S65 V8 engine producing 414 horsepower. A revamped version of the 6.0 liter V12 engine is also expected.
The car will make its official debut in 2008 as a 2009 model year.
