The all-new 2009 BMW 7 Series features many industry firsts, and several technologies new for BMW. The 2009 7 Series features:

- World's first Night Vision system with individual pedestrian recognition.

- World's first production car with front side view camera.

- First BMW Saloon with speed-related Integral Active Steering.

- First BMW with Lane Change Warning.

In Europe the 5th generation BMW 7 Series is offered with three different engine options. Including a 245 horspower 3.0 litre diesel, a 326 horsepower 3.0 litre 6 cylinder, and a 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 which produces 407 horsepower. For the US market the 7 Series will be available solely in V8 form.

The BMW 750Li is the flagship 7 Series model. The new 4,395cc V8 engine from the BMW X6, features twin-turbochargers and high-precision direct injection technology. It develops 407hp from 5,500rpm to 6,400rpm, and 442 lb-ft (600Nm) of torque from 1,750rpm to 4,500rpm.

The all-aluminium V8 engine powering the 750i and 750Li also features its own world first - twin-turbochargers and catalysts that are placed within the V-space of the engine block. This not only optimises packaging but the reduction in manifold length and larger cross sections mean the engine breathes better for enhanced performance.

Regenerative braking is used to charge the battery for the car's electrical circuit. When the driver is accelerating the alternator disengages so all of the engine's power is channelled towards the car's performance. Other ancillaries, such as the air-conditioning compressor, are also able to disengage to improve the all round performance of the car, while at the same time improving fuel economy.

To aid driving dynamics and comfort the 2009 7 Series is the first BMW Saloon to feature race car-like double-wishbone front suspension. This arrangement allows engineers to fine-tune the suspension for the best kinematic configuration. The rear suspension consists of a five-link arrangement made of aluminium which can be further optimised with the inclusion of Adaptive Air Suspension.

Inside the 2009 BMW 7 Series is a host of modern conveniences. The 2009 7 Series is the first BMW to enable a customer to upload their favourite music to be stored on the vehicle courtesy of an 8Gb hard drive. In excess of 100 albums can be saved in this way. Four-zone automatic air-conditioning is fitted as standard while, for the first time, the 7 Series can have a rear seat ventilation system combined with massage function. The air-conditioning system feeds cool air to the seat squab and backrest, while 12 massage bubbles gently knead the occupants' upper body.

On the 10.2-inch dash-mounted screen, owners will be able to programme frequently selected radio stations or navigation destinations on favourite buttons located on the centre console. For the first time on a BMW the instrument cluster comprises a high-resolution colour display with Black Panel technology.
