New BMW 7 Series Spied With Oddly Placed Front License Plate

Why so high?

We’ve seen literally thousands of camouflaged prototypes over the years, but we can’t remember the last time we were this curious to find out what’s hiding under the disguise. The next-generation BMW 7 Series has been caught once more, hinting at a completely redesigned exterior concealed under many layers of camouflage.

The silver lining is the prototype does have a tad less camo than before, revealing a section of its interesting front bumper as well as the bottom half of the large kidney grilles. Oddly enough, BMW mounted the license plate up high where you’d normally expect to find the corporate badge. Those simple headlights are likely provisional as they seem to have a basic look, but the original 8 Series-esque placement and shape is likely the final one.

As to why the license plate sits above the headlights, your guess is as good as ours. We’re fairly certain it won’t be there on the production model as that would look downright odd. This bumper design with thin vertical slats does seem to make it hard to mount a license plate, so maybe it will be affixed to the grille like on some of the latest BMWs, including the new 4 Series Gran Coupe, iX, and the M3/M4.
