New flagship BMW
A NEW flagship model for the BMW 7 Series, the M760Li xDrive V12, has made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
It can power the big BMW from zero to 62mph in 3.9 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 155mph.
With TwinPower turbo technology incorporated for the first time, this new M Performance engine produces 600bhp and underneath it comes with a highly sophisticated chassis specifically tailored to the model using BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
It now also links up with the auto start-stop function, which is just one measure that contributes to an impressive official combined fuel consumption figure of 22.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 294g/km.
The new model is instantly recognisable thanks to the M Performance body enhancements, specific trim details and unique 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the M760Li xDrive V12 retains the luxurious feel of the new BMW 7 Series, but adds sporting elements such as the M Performance steering wheel and illuminated V12 logo and exclusive M pedals.
The specification of the car is extremely high, with a long list of comfort, convenience, safety and dynamic driving features.
The top range BMW goes on sale towards the end of 2016 with prices being announced nearer the time.
