Not a full fledged M car but rather an M Performance variant like the M235i and X4 M40i – BMW M760Li xDrive is based on the new 7 Series which was recently launched in India a the 2016 Auto Expo.
This is the first ever 7 Series feature the M badge. It is available in two trims, one the standard BMW M760Li xDrive, while the other is BMW M760Li xDrive Excellence, a more premium variant with added comfort, luxury and tech.
New BMW M760Li xDrive receives a light and rigid chassis and sets new standards as it enters into a sporting luxury sedan segment. Both variants of new BMW M760Li xDrive are powered by a 6.6 liter twin turbo V12 engine offering 600 hp at 5,500 rpm and 800 Nm torque at 1,500 rpm.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is achieved in 3.9 seconds while top speed is limited at 250 kmph. For owners who want more speed, the optional M Drivers Package takes top speed a notch higher to 305 kmph. The engine is mated to an 8 speed Steptronic sport transmission.
Onboard equipment includes active roll stabilization or Integral Active Steering while where safety features are concerned, the model receives Driving Assistant Plus, lane departure warning, cross traffic alert, active side collision protection and rear collision prevention.
