BMW M760Li Individual Looks Extra Special In Long Beach Blue Coat 23

BMW Individual have come up with yet another stunning machine: a customized M760Li that’s on display in Abu Dhabi.

Likely made especially for a local customers, the flagship saloon has a very special exterior color, called Long Beach Blue.

Furthermore, this range-topping 7-Series also benefits from what BMW Abu Dhabi calls a “3D design body kit”, which combines the Alpina-like front apron and rear spoiler with carbon fiber mirror caps and 21-inch multi-spoke wheels finished in Liquid Black.

Red leather dominates most of the interior, including the front and rear seats, lower part of the dashboard, central console and doors, and is joined by black leather, wood trim and metallic accents. Two rear individual seats assure the passengers of this stunning M760Li of the required comfort, alongside the rear entertainment system with two displays mounted on the back of the front seats.

In the engine compartment, this M760Li remains stock, meaning that its 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 puts out 600 PS (592 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque that are directed to the xDrive all-wheel drive system via an 8-speed auto transmission.

Despite being no lightweight, this luxo-barge needs just 3.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) and maxes out at 250 km/h (155 mph).

Can A Skoda Superb Really Hold Its Own Against A BMW M760Li? 14

Posted by Carscoops Staff in BMW, BMW 7-Series, BMW Videos, Skoda, Skoda Superb, Skoda Videos, video on 11 14th, 2017


The Skoda Superb and BMW 7 Series are both fairly large European sedans, manufactured by German auto groups.

That’s about where the similarities end, though – especially when the Bimmer in question is the top-of-the-line M760Li.

The very pinnacle of BMW’s sedan lineup, the M760Li is the closest thing we’ve seen yet to a full-on M7, packing a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 that sends over 600 horsepower to all four wheels.

The Superb 280 seen here is also the performance version of Skoda’s flagship sedan, albeit on a different plane entirely. Its engine is less than a third the size of the Bimmer’s, with a third the cylinders, half the turbochargers, and less than half the output.

It’s also considerably less expensive than the BMW, but the big question is how the Skoda measures up. And that’s the question which the fellas at CarWow have set out to answer in this latest clip. You’re gonna have to watch for yourself to see what they found, though, so set aside six minutes and enjoy this improbable face-off.

Imola Red BMW M760Li Could Brighten Up Anyone’s Day 13

In some cases, color alone can make the difference between simply acknowledging a nice car, and one that – for whatever reason, you just can’t take your eyes off. You could say this car might  qualify for the latter scenario.

On display at BMW Abu Dhabi, this Imola Red M760Li has to be one of the most eye-catching examples we’ve ever seen when it comes to BMW’s flagship specific model – and we’ve seen quite a few this year.

Besides the attention-grabbing red hue, other enhancements include the 3D Design body kit, M Performance trunk lid spoiler, carbon fiber mirror covers, dual tone M sport wheels and blue calipers.

Inside, the red theme continues with red leather throughout, on not just the seats but also the lower dashboard, center console and door panels. You’ll also find a proper amount of black leather and some dark wood trim.

As for that V12 badge underneath the iDrive wheel, it’s there because the M760Li is powered by a 6.6-liter V12 unit, sending 610 PS (603 HP) to its rear wheels (unless it’s an xDrive model), along with 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.

Watch A BMW 7-Series Hacked Back From The Dead 11

Knowing how expensive it can be to repair badly damaged cars, most insurance company’s write-off a car before sending it to a body shop, even if the car has a tiny crack in the frame.

However, there are some cars on the streets which have been crushed and crumpled yet somehow repaired to look brand new. Being well-versed with a hammer and not much else when it comes to working on a car, we’ve always wondered what it takes to perform such a repair. The video below shows just that.

Posted online by a man named Arthur Tussik, this 20-minute video details the 27-day repair of a BMW 7-Series that came into his shop with extreme damage to the front and side.

Throughout the clip, we see Tussik restore life to the 7-Series like a brain surgeon in an operating theater. From straightening out the BMW’s crash structure and somehow re-shaping the crumpled body, Tussik literally gives this 7-Series a new lease on life.

Inevitably, the repaired car isn’t as structurally sound as a new car so we wouldn’t recommend purchasing a vehicle that’s suffered so much damage in a previous life. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see what decades of experience of auto body repair can do.

Report Claims Tesla Model S Is Less Eco-Friendly Than The Mitsubishi Mirage 8

The Tesla Model S is often heralded as the best electric vehicle on the market but a new report suggests it might not actually be that environmentally friendly.

As Auto Express reports, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology compared the lifecycle CO2 emissions of several different vehicles including a BMW 7-Series, a Mitsubishi Mirage, and a Tesla Model S. The results are a tad surprising as the report claims the Mirage is actually the most eco-friendly of the group as the car emits 192 grams of CO2 for every kilometer it is driven. The Model S wasn’t far behind at 226 g/km, while the 7-Series registered 385 g/km.

While you’re probably thinking how can an electric vehicle produce CO2 emissions, MIT Tranick Lab examined multiple factors including how much emissions were created in the vehicle’s production and how much emissions would be made when the vehicle was scrapped. They also examined how much CO2 would be produced as a result of powering the vehicle whether it used gasoline or electricity generated by power plants.

The researchers appeared to have made several assumptions but they stress they weren’t trying to shine a negative light on electric vehicles. As MIT’s Jessika Trancik explained, “Both hybrids and electric vehicles are better than conventional cars.”
