Carbon fibre core.

Carbon fibre technology is the latest evolution in lightweight efficiency. Half the weight of steel and lighter than aluminium, yet it’s blessed with the same stability and tensile strength. Together, with almost perfect 50:50 weight distribution, the carbon core delivers smoother handling and unparalleled agility.

BMW 7 Series Saloon Carbon Core Chassis

Carbon Core. 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.

Aerodynamics.

In the new BMW 7 Series, air resistance won’t hold you back. Engineered for outstanding performance, the Chrome air vents of the kidney grilles actively regulate the air stream, whilst the two-axle air suspension automatically lowers the vehicle by 10mm at higher speeds, further reducing air resistance. 

BMW xDrive
