The new BMW M760Li xDrive offers performance and comfort



With the new BMW M760Li xDrive, the freshly launched new BMW 7 Series is gaining a prestigious flagship model. Headlined by its exceptional refinement and supreme power delivery at all times, the 12-cylinder petrol engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology under the bonnet reinforces the new car's range-topping status. The boldly dynamic driving characteristics of the BMW M760Li xDrive combine with superior ride comfort to make a compelling statement and set a new benchmark in the luxury sedan segment.

Powerful and authoritative.

The new BMW M760Li xDrive gives a debut to the new M Performance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder petrol engine. Concealed under a cover bearing ?M Performance? lettering, the 6.6-litre V12 develops output of 448 kW/610 hp at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) at 1,550 rpm (fuel consumption combined: 12.8 l/100 km [22.1 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 294 g/km)*. The high-performance unit with leading-edge M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology accelerates the BMW M760Li xDrive from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds on the way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). If the optional M Driver?s Package is specified, the speed limiter doesn't cut in until 305 km/h (189 mph). Power transfer is via the state-of-the-art eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission as standard. The M Performance-specific tuning of the shift programs, delivering sportier gear changes and more instantaneous downshifts throughout the rev range, has been specially adapted to the characteristics of the V12 engine. With its optimal internal efficiency and a gear-change strategy assisted by navigation data, the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission contributes to the authoritative driving experience and works seamlessly with the standard Auto Start Stop function.

Outperforming its segment rivals in driving dynamics and ride comfort.
 
The innovative Executive Drive Pro suspension system is a passport to dynamic sharpness and unbeatable ride comfort. Active roll stabilization minimizes body movements, and the system teams up with performance tyres, fitted to exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in Matt Cerium Grey metallic, to give the new BMW M760Li xDrive the best driving dynamics in its class, without impinging on ride comfort. The rear-biased BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system takes its lead from the available grip levels to distribute engine power to all four wheels as the situation demands. In the process, it delivers the dynamic excellence you'd expect of an M Performance model and a supreme level of performance in all conditions. Active safety and driving dynamics are also beneficiaries of the standard Integral Active Steering system in the new BMW M760Li xDrive, which complements the more direct steering ratio at the front axle by adjusting the steering angle of the rear wheels according to the situation at hand. This reduces steering effort at low speeds and in dynamic driving, further enhancing agility and active safety. The new 19-inch M Sport brakes, boasting blue metallic brake calipers and M badging, set the seal on the dynamic armory of the BMW M760Li xDrive and ensure unbeatable deceleration at all times.

Innovative driver assistance systems.

The new BMW M760Li xDrive is fitted with the same extensive package of innovative driver assistance systems as all variants of the successfully launched BMW 7 Series model range. The Driving Assistant Plus system includes the Steering and lane control assistant, Lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection, Rear collision prevention and Crossing traffic warning functions. Meanwhile, the Traffic jam assistant "which involves semi-automated driving" can be used on any type of road. And the Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function now only requires drivers to press a button to incorporate speed restrictions detected by the Speed Limit Info function. The new generation of the Surround View system now also includes a 3D View and Panorama View option in the Control Display.

Dynamic focus underlined by the exterior styling.

 
In its exterior appearance alone, the new BMW M760Li xDrive embodies the dynamic mission statement of the BMW M Performance Automobiles with unmistakable clarity. 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 guarantee an elegantly sporty appearance. The exclusive galvanized Cerium Grey finish for the kidney grille frame and the fronts of the grille bars, along with the front apron strip, the strips on the exterior door handles, Air Breathers, side door trim elements and boot lid handle, all add colour accents, subtly highlighting the special status of the BMW M760Li xDrive within the BMW 7 Series model range and the BMW model line-up as a whole. Other notable exterior features include the mirror caps, likewise in Cerium Grey, V12 badges on the C-pillars, the M logos on the sides of the car and the xDrive lettering and model badge at the rear. A new M sports exhaust system with flap control generates an emotionally rich V12 soundtrack and adds the finishing touches to the signature M Performance look with its galvanized Cerium Grey twin tailpipe embellishers in exclusive design positioned on either side.
