BMW releases sketches of 2009 7-Series, what it could have been

Along with a press release talking about BMW’s testing center in the south of France, Autodrome de Miramas, BMW released design sketches of the new 2009 BMW 7-Series . BMW says that the Miramas Test Center played a "key role in the process of developing the new BMW 7-Series." Right –┬áit seems the sketches did not.

We’re pretty sure we’re not alone when we say the design of the new 2009 BMW 7-Series was a bit disappointing. While the front fascia of the new 7-Series is ‘acceptable’ we’re wondering what Adrian Van Hooydonk, head of BMW design, and his team were thinking when they steered away from they came up with the rear according to these sketches.

Well it’s too late now and it is what it is – the 2009 BMW 7-Series will be in showrooms starting spring 2009 . Who knows? Maybe BMW will give it a quick facelift like they did with the outgoing model.
