Is as close as a BMW 7 Series gets to BMW M.
The 2016 BMW 7 Series’s M760Li xDrive model, first showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, had its Asian debut at Auto China 2016 (2016 Beijing Motor Show) held last month. The M760Li xDrive is the new range-topping model of the 2016 7 Series model, and as its name suggests, is available only in long-wheelbase version.
Being the range-topping, performance model the BMW M760Li xDrive had to have a distinctive styling. It sports the M aerodynamic package with larger air intakes in the front apron and exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke 760M design with matt Cerium Grey finish. The exclusive galvanized Cerium Grey finish has been given to many other elements of the car, including the kidney grille frame, the front of the grille bars, the front apron strip, the mirror caps, the exterior door handle strips, Air Breathers, side door trim elements and bootlid handle.
Other notable features of the BMW 760Li include V12 badges on the C-pillars, M logos on the sides, M sports exhaust system with flap control and galvanized Cerium Grey twin tailpipe embellishers in exclusive design.
Under the bonnet, there’s a 6.6-litre M Performance TwinPower Turbo biturbo V12 petrol engine that produces 448 kW (610 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. The M760Li can clock 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, which can be increased to 305 km/h on specifying the M Driver’s Package.
