BMW 7-Series Hybrid Engineers Very Bad At Camouflage

The BMW 755ih will be hybridized so the plutocrat inside appears empathetic to the concerns of the peasantry. BMW wants everyone to know how much they care, so the mule's emblazoned with "Hybrid Testing Vehicle" stickers written in German. Jawohl!

The new premo sled for the faux-green and Hollyweird types alike will undoubtedly be this newest BMW luxo-barge, complete with a 4.4 liter, twin-turbo V8 good for 407 HP and 442 lb-ft of torque, which gets "assisted" by a 20 HP electric motor that contributes 155 lb-ft of torque. The whole shebang is expected to provide a 15% bump in fuel economy over the 750il, and a 75% bump in self-satisfied BMW driving smugness. For the complete spy photo set, head over to BMWBlog.
