Power Move – BMW M760Li

One of the most anticipated cars of 2017, the BMW M760Li takes the pioneering 7 Series in a supremely luxurious direction

bmw-liThe future of luxury exists where the twin worlds of prestige and performance combine. The M760Li is that rare combination. Uniting BMW’s signature “M” power and the cosseted comfort of the 7 Series, it is a car that gives you a fresh perspective – that encourages exploration on your own terms, in a level of comfort that makes any journey feel more refined. Quite simply the most innovative vehicle in its class, the M760Li also happens to be one of the most elegant cars on the road.

The BMW M760Li xDrive is the most powerful and prestigious production car in the company’s history. First debuted at the Shanghai motor show last February, the world’s motoring press have been excitedly talking up the 6.6 litre V12 twin turbocharged petrol engine ever since.

Given that you can travel from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds, it is easy to share their excitement. The 610hp and 800nm of torque makes this clearly a car in its own class.

The M760Li combines revolutionary technology with the pedigree of a company that has been turning heads for over 100 years. Every feature makes the driving experience more dynamic – the Head-Up Display and integral active steering enhances rather than stifles the raw thrill of motion. The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission makes power shifts effortless, while sportier gear changes and an intelligent all-wheel drive system ensure unprecedented control. BMW has also introduced an active quad exit exhaust system, which means you can tailor how much you want to hear the glorious thunder of the engine. Gesture Control is available on the go, so you can safely control your car’s audio and field phone calls while on the move.

The M760Li also boasts some features that’ll seriously impress your passengers. The full Merino leather upholstery gives the feeling of discreet opulence and, when combined with the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System, creates a similar sensation to a First Class cabin or a high end hotel suite. The Sky Lounge panoramic glass sunroof gives the tantalising sense of being wholly part of your environment – even when you’re travelling at speed.

While others may be swayed by a new car’s flashy peripheries, this is a vehicle that truly justifies the hype. Not only does it possess considerable power, but it can deliver thrilling speed, stunning accuracy and unrivalled comfort simultaneously. In short, it bears all the hallmarks of over a century spent perfecting the Ultimate Driving Machine.

The driving experience: Taking the wheel of the M760Li, one notices that it glides effortlessly at low speeds, but really comes into its own on the open road. Letting the Driving Assistant Plus system guide you soon feels like second nature, with the car acting as a second set of eyes to maintain the distance from the car in front, stay in lane and avoid forward collisions. The Traffic Jam Assistant offers semi-automated driving for those slower moments and Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function now only requires drivers to press a button to incorporate speed restrictions. The masterstroke? Remote Control Parking never gets old.
