BMW M760Li XDrive news: New Bimmer equipped with 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 engine


BMW has revealed the latest addition to their 7-series luxury line. Called the BMW M760Li xDrive, it boasts a twin-turbocharged engine that produces 600 bhp and around 590 lb-ft of torque. The new Bimmer conquers 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds.

The BMW M760LI xDrive engine is impressively efficient and environment-friendly, given its size. The Double-VANOS variable valve timing joined with its precise fuel injection, gives out a high compression ratio that produces good fuel consumption. Top Gear reported that it gives out 22.4 miles to a gallon and an impressive 294g/km C02 emission.

The torque produced by the monster V12 engine is transferred to the wheels via its 8-speed automatic gearbox that can be controlled through the leather steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. A launch control mechanism is on-board for those who want a little spice when rolling out from a complete stop.

The BMW M760LI xDrive has the 7-series platform when it comes to its wheelbase which gives the backseat more legroom. Aside from that, future owners who want to avail the “Executive Drive Pro” will be pleased to have air suspension that is equipped with the Dynamic Damper Control and Dynamic Drive, for a relaxing drive toward their destination.

Actively scanning cameras, adaptive LED headlights, anti-dazzle high beam assistant, keyless Comfort Access, rain sensors and other electronic enhancements are also coming with the new BMW model.

The four-door M760LI xDrive saloon has electronically adjustable seats that are covered with Merino leather. Heaters and massagers also come with particular upgrades that provide a luxuriously comfortable ride. Acording to The Telegraph, an in-car Samsung tablet is at the occupant’s disposal to control the radio and for the color adjustment of its interior lighting. 

BMW Blog reports that a V12 Excellence package is available for the BMW M760LI xDrive that adds 20-inch W-spoke BMW light-alloy wheels, a black glossy colored brake calipers and a chrome bar at the upper section of the intake grill to enhance its appearance.

The BMW M760LI xDrive has no price yet, but may arrive in the U.S. in 2017’s second half.
