BMW is using a technology and innovation workshop to present an initial selection of development highlights which the next generation of the BMW 7 Series model range will use to set new benchmarks in lightweight design, driving dynamics, comfort, intelligent connectivity and operation.

The wheel rim specialists from Oxigin Leichtmetallräder in Swabian Unterensingen prove that their current wheel rim design “18 Concave” looks particularly handsome on the large BMW models with the two XL Bavarians presented here.
The white 5 series Touring from the F11 series has been equipped with the Oxigin 18 in the popular finish black full polish with undercut. It’s very practical: there is a TÜV expert report for the sizes used, 9×20 and 10.5×20 inch, in combination with tyres sized 245/35ZR20 and 285/30ZR20, for the current generation of the BMW 5 series F10/11.
