a concept with many advantages.
Carbon fibre combines stability, rigidity and low weight, but its complex processing calls for a supreme level of expertise. The new BMW 7 Series is the only vehicle in which this innovative composite solution is used.
Innovation that loses weight.
Carbon is 50% lighter than steel and some 30% lighter than aluminium. The Carbon Core therefore significantly reduces the weight of the new BMW 7 Series. The result is that new benchmarks are defined for fuel consumption and CO2 reduction.
HIGHER RIGIDITY. BETTER PERFORMANCE.
The Carbon Core increases the body stiffness while, at the same time, lowering the vehicle’s centre of gravity. This leads to greater smoothness, even better handling and convincing driving dynamics – the driving pleasure in the new BMW 7 Series reaches a new dimension.
