BMW Launches M760Li xDrive - The New Boss Sedan


This is the most powerful production car BMW’s ever made and also the new flagship for their Indian portfolio

BMW M760Li xDrive

When you think about the most powerful car from a brand, you probably image an aerodynamic two-door sports car. But when the brand is BMW, things take a U-turn and you end up getting a 17-feet long sedan. This - the most powerful BMW - a 7 Series - M760Li xDrive has been silently launched in India at a price of Rs 2.27 crore, ex-Delhi. The car has a 6.6-litre V12 engine which has more power than a Porsche 911.

This price tag also makes it the most expensive BMW in the country. It is available in two trims - M760Li xDrive and M760Li xDrive V12 Excellence, both of which cost exactly the same. The standard car is more focused towards sportiness while the V12 Excellence adds a touch of extravagance to the flagship Beemer.

Powering the most powerful BMW is a 6.6-litre V12 twin-turbo petrol engine that gives it 610PS of power and 800Nm of torque. All four wheels of the sedan get power from this mill via an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with xDrive. The result is a 0-100kmph time of just 3.7 seconds, exceptional for a sedan weighing up to 2 tonnes! And to get a perfect launch, BMW gives you a launch control and paddle shifters. BMW even claims a fuel efficiency of 8kmpl.

Since this is a flagship 7 Series, the car gets all the luxuries one can imagine, and beyond. In terms of changes from the standard 7 Series, the M760Li xDrive gets a different front bumper, grey garnish on the grille, 19-inch M Sport blue brake callipers, 20-inch alloy wheels in Cerium Grey, M and V12 logos on the sides and the rear, M Sport exhaust and ‘V12’-marked door sills.

The flagship BMW is now available in the country and is sure to attract the elites. It combines the performance heritage of the BMW M brand with the elegance and luxury of the 7 Series badge. Though this sounds intriguing, one could ask the question of whether this dual personality sedan makes any sense? You see, most of the 7 Series owners are well rested on the rear seats while a hired help takes the wheel. So, more power will only let the chauffeur have more fun while the owner gets slightly more worried at the back. But, as a statement, it hardly gets better than this.
