MotorMan Magazine (website still under construction) released one of the best videos we have seen so far of the new BMW 7 Series. The model of choice was the the high-end diesel version, 740d.
Before we let you enjoy the video, here is a bit of background on the 740d. The new diesel 7er was introduced last Fall and it features a newly developed six-cylinder power unit, an all-aluminum engine boasting BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology and common-rail direct fuel injection with piezo-injectors operating at an injection pressure of up to 2,000 bar.
The charge system follows the Variable Twin Turbo principle and is made up of two turbochargers of various size perfectly matched to one another and therefore operating either individually or together as a team, depending on the driver’s power and performance requirements.
The new power unit delivers maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 600 Newton-meters/442 lb-ft maintained consistently between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm.
The BMW 740d accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and is limited electronically in its top speed to 250 km/h or 155 mph.
