BMW will unveil the 2009 7-Series this autumn at the Paris Motor Show. With design inspired by the CS Concept unveiled in 2007 at the Shanghai Auto Show, the 2009 7-Series will be smaller than the current generation, but still a full-S-Class competitor.

The South Yarra car’s sharply angled headlights and flush, extended double-kidney grille are covered in the images we were able to capture. However, having seen the car undisguised we can vouch they are virtually a productionised version of the CS showcar’s ’shark-like’ front end.

The new 7’s bonnet features a flat top and sharp shoulder ’crease’ that make the guards looked even more ’pumped’ than the current 5 Series. The lines and aggressive chamfer also cleverly disguise the pedestrian friendly height of the front-end.

The tail lamps are sculptured tight to the curves of the rear corner panels and feature tightly grouped mini LEDs in their main ’working’ zones. They also boast a group of ogee-shaped inner lamps that look like they are almost an interpretation of shark gills — quite unique, in keeping with the CS theme, and spectacular when lit.
