BMW Big Boss Harald Kruger says that the new 7 series is a window to the future of BMW...

In a world first in a volume model like the 7 Series, BMW has bonded carbonfibre into load-bearing parts of the structure, significantly improving rigidity and also helping to reduce weight dramatically and thus improve fuel economy.
 BMW calls the structure of the new 7 Series the 'carbon core'. It's been developed using learning and know-how from the i sub-brand, which is based 20 miles or so away from the Dingolfing production site that's home to the 7 Series

Sounds quite promising. BMW seems to be at the forefront of carbon fiber engineering. I just wonder how long it will take for other companies to catch up. It certainly will be a huge advantage for BMW while the other companies lag behind.

BMW has always been producing quality products in all of its ranges so far. When it comes to a niche product such as the carbon-fibre model release, I am certain it will deliver its promise as to how it has been described.
