Recently unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the new BMW M760Li xDrive is a superior ride driven by a TwinPower Turbo12-cylinder petrol engine that generates 610hp. The 6.6-litre unit also features a peak torque of 800Nm and races from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed for the V12 of 241kph.
The new ride also comes with active roll stabilisation, which minimises body movement and which is combined with performance tyres that are fitted to exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in matt Cerium Grey metallic. Active safety and driving dynamics are also beneficiaries of the standard Integral Active Steering system in the new BMW M760Li xDrive, which 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. Ensuring smooth deceleration, the new ride is also equipped with 19-inch M Sport brakes boasting blue metallic brake calipers.
On its exterior, the structure has larger air intakes in the front apron with a galvanised Cerium Grey finish for the kidney grille frame and the fronts of the grille bars. The 760 also boasts an M sports exhaust system with flap control and twin tailpipe embellishers positioned on either side.
Take a peek inside and you’ll find an avant-garde leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons on its spokes and shift paddles for manual gear changes on the reverse. For comfort, the inside has plenty of legroom with luxurious touches such as air suspension and electrically adjustable seats trimmed in Nappa leather. The area of the centre console around the selector level and iDrive Controller is adorned with a BMW Individual decorative inlay in Piano Finish Black and with V12 badging.
Another new feature in the 760 is gesture control for infotainment, as well as to control the volume and for accepting or rejecting incoming telephone calls. Last but not least, for the first time, a smartphone holder is also available, integrated into the centre console, which enables wireless and inductive mobile phone charging.
