Last we saw a 2009 BMW 7-Series prototype, it had the typical plastic body cladding, missing decals and blacked-out everything. This time, the lads at World Car Fans managed to get their hands on the new 7-series done up in perhaps the most creative camouflage we've yet seen (though we have to wonder if this is the best way to draw attention away from the car) Pictures of the boring camo'd version below:

Word on the street is the new 7-series will feature a range of engines including the 272-hp 3.0-liter straight-six, 414-hp V8 and probably some version of the 6.0-liter V12. We hear it'll be out on the streets during the next calendar year, but we hear a lot of things. [World Car Fans]

As noted above (though less pointedly) - the purpose of the camouflage on a pre-production car is simply to hide the detail. Of course, you can still pick out the general shape if you analyze it enough. However, the pattern breaks up any light/shadow that could give away the exact body lines.
