This is what happens when you go crazy with the configurator.
Just $162,200 in Canada will get you behind the wheel of a shiny new M760Li xDrive, but this fullsize luxury sedan is anything but standard. On display at the company’s famous dealership in Abu Dhabi, this attention-grabbing 7 Series is probably one of the most expensive new BMWs money can buy.
It’s wearing a fancy Estoril Blue shade from the BMW Individual catalog and sits on large 21-inch M Performance alloy wheels featuring a two-tone look and a trunk lid spoiler developed by Alpina. We would only get rid of the silver bar running across the side profile, but to each his own.
On the inside, the M670Li has been ordered with an equally striking red leather upholstery and the rear-seat entertainment system. The elongated wheelbase provides an abundance of legroom for those relaxing on the rear seats in the most luxurious car the BMW Group has to offer, if we’re excluding the ones carrying the Spirit of Ecstasy.
Aside from being the most upscale model to wear the BMW badge, it’s also insanely fast for a vehicle of this size and weight. With a monstrous 6.6-litre V12 packing a pair of turbochargers, the all-wheel-drive 7 Series provides the driver with 601 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. It’s good for a sprint to 100 kilometres per hour in just 3.7 seconds before topping out at an electronically capped 250 km/h. An optional M Driver’s Package will loosen up the limiter to unlock a maximum velocity of 305 km/h.
For a car that tips the scales at a hefty 2,326 kilograms, these are some amazing performance numbers and we’re beginning to understand why BMW won’t come out with an M7. This will do just fine for 99% of the people in the market for a big sedan delivering supercar levels of performance.
