2010 BMW 740d.

I remember blogging about CAR UK's interview with Adrian van Hooydonk where Stephen Bayley commented how ugly the previous 7-series was.

But this new 740d with x-Drive and M-sport kit is something which I think BMW finally came back to the design philosophy of its family which they've (somehow) departed from.
3.0l, twin turbocharges putting forth 306 horsepower and 600Nm of torque that goes from 0-100km/h in 6.3s (whoa, considering the size), 19-inch wheel (optional 20) with quad-exhaust. Nice. Suddenly the 7-series driver doesn't look so old anymore.

It's strange that a lot of autobrands are revealing their 2010 models now. Maybe to spark some market anticipation in these dark times?
