This is the quickest BMW to come to Australia
For four decades, the 7 Series has been the unchallenged luxury leader of the BMW range. Now, with the arrival in Australia of the newly launched BMW M760Li xDrive, it also takes pole position for performance.
The M760Li is faster than any other BMW currently on the market. The performance-focused limousine continues a three decade-long tradition of V12 power in the 7 Series family.
The M Performance TwinPower Turbo 6.6-litre V12 produces 448kW of power with a substantial 800Nm torque peak, combining to make it the fastest-accelerating BMW of all time. A 3.7-second sprint from 0-100km/h rivals many bona fide supercars, on the way to a governed top speed of 250km/h.
The M760Li is also the first BMW saloon to arrive in Australia fitted with the xDrive all-wheel-drive system, to maximise traction and directional stability. A rear-biased drive split retains the dynamic response that is a BMW hallmark, while Integral Active Steering improves low-speed cornering ability by skewing the rear wheels a few degrees opposite the fronts.
An M sports exhaust system provides a cultured yet potent acoustic, and the Executive Drive Pro suspension system blends active roll-bar technology with automatically-adjustable damping with the aim to combine a luxurious ride with responsive, engaging handling.
Inside the M760Li xDrive, appointments include a ‘Sky Lounge’ panoramic glass sunroof, elegant fine-wood trims, ceramic control surrounds and hand-woven leather sourced from BMW Individual’s bespoke program. A four-seat layout offers executive seating, each with its own programmable massage function, heating and ventilation systems. The Rear Entertainment Experience package adds two tiltable high-resolution screens with Blu-Ray capability.
Cerium Grey trim is a consistent exterior theme across the front bumper as well as the M logo, mirror caps, door elements and handles, the tailgate strip, and on the V12 badges fitted to the C-pillar. The light-alloy 20-inch road wheels also feature the finish.
The BMW M760Li xDrive retails at $425,000 (plus on-road costs).
