Maximum sovereignty at an even higher elegance – This is what the BMW V12 M760Li Excellence brings to the luxury segment. At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, BMW unveiled the top model in the new 7 Series lineup which aims to deliver enhanced luxury with a higher price point.
The V12 Excellence model of the M760Li focuses more on luxury and comfort than performance and dynamics. The V12 Excellence trades the M aerodynamic package for visual cues from the Pure Excellence exterior design package. These include 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in W-spoke 646 design, high-gloss polished, with mixed-size tires (front: 245/40 R20, rear: 275/35 R20) and brake calipers in high-gloss Black.
The front end of the BMW M760Li xDrive V12 Excellence has a chrome bar extending across the full width of the car in the upper section of the air intake grille, while the kidney grille bars are in Silver with chrome fronts, and their surrounds likewise sport bright chrome. Added to which, the V12 Excellence features LED foglamps in the front apron.
On the inside of the V12 Excellence comes the Pure Excellence interior design package. This comes with an Alcantara headliner, door sill plates in Fine Brushed Aluminium with illuminated V12 badge and precise decorative stitching in the lower section of the instrument panel as well as fine wood inlays for the seat belt outlet. The BMW leather steering wheel with wood applications creates an elegant accent, and when the driver fires up the engine a V12 emblem lights up in the center of the instrument cluster.
The car is powered by a 6.6 liter TwinPower turbocharged V12 that develops a monstrous 610 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, and a quoted 0 to 62 mph time of 3.7 seconds.[Photos: Bimmertoday]
