Chronology
Predecessor BMW 7 Series (E65)
Successor BMW 7 Series (G11)
740i interior

The BMW F01 is the fifth-generation 7 Series luxury sedan, that was produced from 2008 to 2015. The variants of the model range are:

The F01 was the first BMW to be available with a hybrid drivetrain, an 8-speed automatic transmission[7] and a turbocharged V12 engine. It was also the first 7 Series to be available with a turbocharged petrol engine and all-wheel drive (xDrive).

Development and launch

The F01 exterior was designed by Karim Habib.[8]

The car was first revealed to the public in the Red Square in Moscow (Russia) on 8 July 2008.[9][10] Other launch events included the Paris Motor Show in October[11] and the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November.[12]

Equipment

The F01 is the first BMW to be available with rear-wheel steering (Integral Active Steering), all-wheel drive (xDrive), eight speed automatic transmission, pedestrian recognition for the night vision feature, blind spot monitoring, massage function for the rear seats and the radar cruise control system was now able to completely stop the car and accelerate from a standstill (Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go).[8][13][14]

Side cameras are fitted in the front bumper to assist with merging and exiting narrow spaces. By combining these cameras with the front and rear cameras, the F01 can display a virtual overhead graphic of the car to assist with parking.[15] The instrument cluster has an LCD backdrop (with the gauge needles and rings are still present as physical objects), allowing various graphics to be shown.[16] A lane departure warning system - as fitted to the E60 5 Series since 2007 - was also available for the first time in a 7 Series.[17]

Departures from the non-traditional interior design of the E65 include the transmission shifter being relocated to the centre console (previously a stalk on the steering column) and the seat controls being relocated to the outside edge of the seat base (previously located in the centre console).[18]

Special Models

High Security (F03)

BMW 7 Series (F03)

The 750Li High Security and 760Li High Security models are the first cars to be certified with BRV 2009 and VR7 ballistics protection ratings.[25] Security upgrades include undercarriage armour, 60 mm (2.4 in) thick multi-layer laminated glass and armour plating on the doors, roof, body pillars, front footwell and rear bulkhead[26] Due to the added weight of the security upgrades, suspension components such as the shock absorbers and strut tops were upgraded. Options included an intercom system between the passengers and the driver, an alarm, a fire extinguisher with temperature sensor, irritant gas sensors (to warn of dangerous gasses in the passenger area), a fresh-air supply system and a compartment for two machine guns in the centre console.[27]

The High Security models were unveiled in GPEC 2012.[28]

ActiveHybrid 7 (F04)

ActiveHybrid 7 (Germany)
ActiveHybrid 7 (USA)

The Activehybrid 7 was the first BMW to use a hybrid drivetrain. The concept was unveiled as the Concept 7 Series ActiveHybrid at the 2008 Paris Auto Show[29] and the 2008 Los Angeles International Auto Show.[12] The production version was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show,[30] and shown again later at the Monaco Yacht Show 2010.[31]

The 2010-2012 production ActiveHybrid 7 uses the engine from 750i plus an electric motor rated 15 kW (20 bhp) and 210 N·m (150 lb·ft) torque. The electric motor is integrated into the transmission housing, replacing alternator and starter. The battery is a lithium-ion type and located under the boot floor.[32] Other features include auto start stop and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid system was based on the 2-mode hybrid from Daimler AG. The regenerative braking unit includes 12V Absorbent Glass Mat batteries, running in parallel to 120V electrical network for electric motor. BMW claims it improved fuel consumption and reduced emissions by 15% over the non-hybrid model.[33][34]

The wheelbase of the ActiveHybrid 7 is extended by 14 cm (6 in)[35] and the car weighs 221 pounds (100 kg) more than a regular 750i. The car's exterior profile was designed by Karim Habib, Team Leader, Advanced Design for BMW in Munich, Germany.[36]

The fuel economy benefits of the 2010-2012 ActiveHybrid 7 were questioned by reviewers, since the EPA consumption ratings of 17 mpg-US (13.8 L/100 km) city and 26 mpg-US (9.0 L/100 km) are not significantly better than the significantly cheaper 740i model's ratings of 17 mpg-US (13.8 L/100 km) city and 25 mpg-US (9.4 L/100 km) highway.[37] The contemporary 740i was powered by a conventional petrol engine (the turbocharged N54 six-cylinder). The 740i produces 85 hp (63 kW) and 120 lb·ft (160 N·m) than the 750i, however it weighs about 100 lb (45 kg) less.[] The 740i has 239 lb (108 kg) less than the 750i over the front axle.[38]

In late 2012, the ActiveHybrid 7's powertrain was significantly changed, switching from the 750i's turbocharged 4.4 litre V8 to the turbocharged 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine from the 740i.[39] The electric motor was upgraded to 41 kW (55 bhp).[40] The 2012-2015 ActiveHybrid 7 was only available as a long-wheelbase model.[41] Fuel economy was significantly improved for the updated drivetrain, which was rated at 22 mpg-US (10.7 L/100 km) city and 30 mpg-US (7.8 L/100 km) highway.[42]

Alpina B7

Alpina B7 BiTurbo (LWB)

The Alpina B7 is based on the 750i and began production for the 2011 model year. The vehicle was unveiled in 2010 Chicago Auto Show, and went on sale in Spring of 2010. Production version went on sale as 2011 model year vehicle.[43] The Alpina B7's engine is assembled by hand at Alpina's facility in Buchloe, Germany, before being shipped to BMW for installation,[44] and the assembled vehicle is then sent back to Alpina for finishing touches.[45]

In the 2010-2012 B7, Alpina's variant of the N63 twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 produces 373 kW (500 bhp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft), with the same fuel economy figures as the regular 750i.[46] Compared with the regular N63 engine, the Alpina includes high-performance pistons, strengthened cylinder heads, an additional radiator and external coolers for the engine oil and transmission oil.[47] Larger and lighter turbochargers are fitted and boost pressure is increased from 0.8 bar (11.6 psi) to 1.0 bar (14.5 psi).[44] The F01/F02 B7 is the first time that BMW M and Alpina used the same type of forced-induction for their engines; Alpina's engine has less horsepower but more torque than S63 variant used in the F10 M5.[48]

The transmission is a ZF 6HP26 six-speed automatic with heavy-duty gears, and the B7 has a strengthened drive shaft, differential and rear axles.[49] The B7 also features a choice of regular or long-wheelbase and/or rear-wheel drive or xDrive.[48][50]

2013 Alpina B7

In late 2012, the B7 received a mid-life update. The updated B7 was unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2012 and went on-sale immediately thereafter.[51] Power increased to 397 kW (532 bhp), and top speed increased to 312 km/h (194 mph) (310 km/h (193 mph) on xDrive models).[51]

In North America, the BMW Alpina B7 is officially sold by BMW and have BMW VINs, whereas the Alpina B7 BiTurbo sold in Europe and Japan are sold as vehicles manufactured by Alpina.[52]

HSH Prince Albert II limousine
