The interior of the new BMW 9 Series Coupe will contain all the high-tech of the new 7 Series. The interior will be a blend of high tech with the Vision Future Luxury Concept. Additionally all sorts of higher premium materials and trims will be added in the coupe.
BMWBlog sources also claim BMW wants to use an entirely new type of power system in the new car. The coupe will most probably feature a 3.0 liter turbocharged, petrol and diesel engine.
