When BMW unveiled their first M Performance 7 Series – the M760Li xDrive – the company announced a power output of 600 horsepower and a standard sprint of 3.9 seconds. But at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, BMW has announced revised figures.
The 2016 BMW M760Li xDrive now makes 610 horsepower, more than the Audi S8 Plus and the ALPINA B7 BiTurbo. The standard sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) was also revised from 3.9 to 3.7 seconds.
The BMW M760Li xDrive comes with a variety of changes over the standard 7 Series, chief of which is the mighty 6.6 liter TwinPower turbocharged V12. All of the power and torque is sent through the familiar ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic, though it has an M-specific tune to it to make shifts slightly more aggressive. Driving the wheels will be BMW’s xDrive system, which has been tuned by BMW M as well, for sporting performance.
The M760Li’s top speed is a governed 155 mph but, with the M Driver’s Package that top speed bumps up to 189 mph. Those kind of performance figures put the M760Li in BMW M4 territory.
