The high-performance BMW M760Li xDrive V12 has been revealed at Geneva and will go on sale towards the end of this year.
Power for the new range-topper comes from a twin-turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 engine developing 592bhp at 5500rpm and 590lb ft from 1500rpm. It is connected to BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which has been modified to come with a rear bias.
Thanks to its extra power, the M760Li xDrive V12 is capable of reaching 62mph in 3.9sec - 0.8sec faster than the current range-topping 750i M Sport - before reaching a limited top speed of 155mph.
Official fuel consumption is rated at 22.4mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 294g/km. The engine is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which features M Performance-tuned software to provide “sportier” changes. Drivers can change gear manually using the wheel-mounted paddles.
Visual changes over the standard 7 Series include bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels, a quad exhaust system and an M Performance body kit which includes subtly reprofiled bumpers front and rear. An optional rear spoiler is also available.
