BMW India has added a top-of-the-line 7 Series to its line-up with the introduction of the new 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive. Touted to be the most powerful BMW ever, the new 7 Series is available in India in the Standard and the V12 Excellence variants, priced at Rs.2.27 crore. Powering the new BMW M760Li is a 6.6-litre, M Performance TwinPower Turbo twelve-cylinder petrol engine that churns out a monstrous 601bhp and develops a massive peak torque of 800Nm.
The V12 comes mated to the company’s tried and tested 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels via BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system. BMW claims that the car can do a 0 to 100 kmph sprint in just 3.7 seconds. Visually, the car looks every bit a product of the M family thanks to the M Sport package and design characteristics. While the signature kidney grille and the headlamps are similar to the ones seen in the regular 7 Series sedan, the front bumper is new and features a larger three-part air intake, which is almost as wide as the width of the car.
