The new BMW M760Li xDrive.

With the new BMW M760Li xDrive, the new BMW 7 Series is gaining a prestigious flagship model. 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. 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.


In its exterior appearance alone, the new BMW M760Li xDrive embodies the dynamic mission statement of the BMW M Performance Automobiles. The M aerodynamic package with larger air intakes in the front apron and exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels with matt Cerium Grey finish guarantee an elegantly sporty appearance. Other notable exterior features include the mirror caps, 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.


The BMW M Performance character is also present inside the car. The exclusive M leather steering wheel features Pearl Gloss Chrome multifunction buttons on its spokes and shift paddles for manual gear changes. The centre console is adorned with a BMW Individual decorative inlay in Piano Finish Black and with V12 badging. The optional Touch Command Panel in the rear compartment’s centre armrest hosts a similar V12 identifier. The electrically adjustable front comfort seats with memory function team up with high-quality deep-pile floor mats in the rear compartment and an Alcantara Anthracite headliner to generate a luxurious ambience. Exclusive Nappa leather trim covers the seat surfaces, seat side sections, head restraints, door cards, centre armrests and side armrests to round off the elegant atmosphere in tasteful style.


Concealed under a cover bearing “M Performance” lettering, debuts the 6.6-litre V12, developing an output of 610 hp and peak torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) at 1,550 rpm. The high-performance unit accelerates the BMW M760Li xDrive from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, or 305 km/h with the optional M Driver’s Package. Power transfer via the standard state-of-the-art eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, contributes to the authoritative driving experience.


The innovative Executive Drive Pro suspension system is a passport to dynamic sharpness and unbeatable ride comfort. Active roll stabilisation minimises body movements, and the system teams up with performance tyres to give the new BMW M760Li xDrive the best driving dynamics and comfort in its class. The rear-biased BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system distributes engine power to all four wheels as the situation demands, delivering a supreme level of performance in all conditions.


The standard Integral Active Steering system 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, reducing steering effort at low speeds while enhancing agility and active safety in dynamic driving. The new 19-inch M Sport brakes, boasting blue metallic brake callipers and M badging, ensure unbeatable deceleration at all times.


The new BMW M760Li xDrive is fitted with an extensive package of innovative driver assistance systems. 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.


The monitor of the iDrive operating system comes in touch display form, allowing drivers to navigate around the system in the same way as with modern electronic devices, in addition to using the Controller to operate the system in the familiar style. The iDrive system also features gesture control, allowing hand movements to be detected by a 3D sensor and control infotainment functions in an extremely intuitive and user-friendly fashion, such as controlling the volume and accepting or rejecting incoming telephone calls.
