BMW Vision Future Luxury concept
BMW's Vision Future Luxury concept car closely previews a new brand flagship that will go on sale in global markets called the 9 series.
The production version is expected in 2016 as a rival to the S600 Maybach, a top-end version of the S-class sedan, which Mercedes-Benz will debut at the Guangzhou and the Los Angeles auto shows in November. The 9 series will be BMW's largest model with a length of about 5500mm (216 inches), about 280mm more than the long-wheelbase 7 series. The extra length will boost the car's appeal in markets such as China where most top executives have chauffeurs.
