New 7-Series Spied
Given that TTAC still occupies that special place in the autoblogosphere where we can afford to pay our writers something between bupkis and a pittance, it's no surprise that "our" Jonny Lieberman freelances his little heinie off. JL's hooked-up with a new site called autofiends.com. We're down with that. Not only does it help provide our man in LA with access to strange and marvelous and prosaic vehicles to review, but it also… um… keeps him from working for Auoblog (as if). Anyway, Jonny's graciously shared this photo of the caught-in-the-wild new 7-Series sans watermark, snapped by his pal Levy in the desert. Or is it a the new 5? All I've got to say is that I'm not sure which is more retro, the camo on the car or autofiends logo. Anyway, we wish JL luck in this new venture, even if he has reduced us to sloppy seconds. We look forward to more of the same.
Guys Honda doesn`t copy anything, it is beyond their pride. And looks like Bimmer is trying to eliminate that duck -tail amateur -fitting trunk lid. how `baut that I-drive?
Maybe it is the next generation Acura RL. Lexus already builds a better Mercedes than Mercedes does, so perhaps eventually Acura will build the best BMW :).
I see a little Pontiac G8 in the tail lights and way too much of the redesigned 7 they released in 2002. They ruined what was arguably one of the best looking sedans made in a LONG time. The 7 used to be absolutely beautiful.
I agree with BlueBrat. Any blog that uses the asinine term "after the jump" is not worth reading.
