Following hot on the heels of the big-breathing BMW X7, the flagship BMW 7 Series sedan is due for a facelift, too. The car’s redesign is supposed to bow tomorrow, but press photos leaked today confirming that it’s gone Big Nostril. Very, very Big Nostril.
Update: This post now includes official images.
You’d be mistaken for thinking the leaked images, first spotted by Carscoops, of the 7 Series were a little too wild to believe—because, oh man, the grills. The nostrils on this bad boy are all kinds of delightful. BMW is really riding that line between absurdity and sleek design, and it’s just begging to have the grill photoshopped just a touch larger by car enthusiasts around the world. It’s almost not surprising anymore, but I’d argue that it’s still pretty hilarious.
Just look at this Instagram photo Carscoops found, and no, we don’t think this one is photoshopped:
Previous full-body images had been leaked on BMWBlog.com, but this time there’s also a higher photo quality of the 750Li long-wheelbase model in grey and a snapshot of the interior.
While most of the car is pretty sleek looking, I don’t know if I could get around picking that nose.
