Up until now, BMW only sold the 7 Series as the 730Ld and 740Li with 3.0-litre V6 diesel and petrol engines respectively, and the 750Li with the 4.4-litre V8 in various trims. What makes the M760Li so special is its M Performance TwinPower Turbo 6.6-lite V12 engine. The engine churns out 601bhp all of which can be found between 5,250-6,000rpm. Peak torque of 800Nm is delivered just when the needle of tachometer exceeds the 1,500rpm mark. The engine comes with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission which has been specifically tuned for this engine by the M division of BMW and also features launch control. All of this allows this behemoth of a sedan to accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds.
This luxury super saloon features more technical wizardry to make it go as fast as it car. fir starters, it has a newly tuned exhaust system, active chassis regulation system Executive Drive Pro with 2-axle air suspension, Dynamic Damper Control as well as Integral Active Steering. The M760Li also features xDrive making it the first sedan from BMW India to feature all-wheel drive.
