Avus Blue 750Li Is An Alluring Mix Of BMW Individual And Aftermarket Parts 30
Dec

If you’re the type of BMW customer who would like to personalize his 7-Series, you might want to pay attention to this one that’s currently at Abu Dhabi Motors.

This 750Li has been fitted with a 3D Design custom front bumper, get black kidney grilles, carbon fiber mirror covers and an Alpina boot lid spoiler, and it sports an Avus Blue paintjob from BMW Individual’s catalog.

As for the interior, BMW offers a wide range of materials to choose from, such as wood, leather and carbon fiber. This particular example features red leather on the seats, door panels, center console and lower dashboard.

While it’s not the flagship version, the 750Li is anything but slow, as its V8 produces 449 PS (445 HP) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, sending it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. That means this two-tonne executive limo is quicker off the line than a first-gen Audi R8. Kinda makes you think if you really need to stretch to the 760Li, doesn’t it?

Dec
Posted by Michael Gauthier in BMW, BMW 7-Series, PHEV, Reports on 12 28th, 2017


The BMW 740e iPerformance offers an impressive blend of luxury and fuel-efficiency but fans might want to hold off on buying the sedan as a new report is suggesting the 2019 model will receive some pretty significant upgrades.

BMW Blog says sources have informed them the updated model will have a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, an upgraded electric motor, and new batteries which have a higher energy density. Specifications remain unconfirmed but the report claims the model will produce around 390 hp (290 kW) and have a longer electric-only range.

The updated model could be called the 745e iPerformance and it is expected to be offered with a wireless charging system like the 530 iPerformance.

Besides the updated powertrain, the 7-Series is expected to receive a new digital instrument cluster called “Live Cockpit.” The display is reportedly similar to the one used on the 8-Series and Z4 concepts.

The 2018 740e xDrive iPerformance starts at $90,700 and it features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, a 9.2 kWh lithium-ion battery, and an electric motor that develops 111 hp (82 kW) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm) of torque. This setup enables the car to produce a combined output of 322 hp (240 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. The car can also accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds and travel up to 14 miles (22 km) on electricity alone.

BMW M760Li Has The Audacity To Take On Mercedes-AMG’s Mighty S63 24
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in AMG, BMW, BMW 7-Series, BMW Videos, Film, mercedes, Mercedes AMG, Mercedes S-Class, Mercedes S63 AMG, Mercedes Videos, video on 12 24th, 2017


The BMW M760Li xDrive isn’t the M7 people have been waiting to happen for years, but it is still exceptionally fast. So fast, in fact, that it can actually challenge a Mercedes-AMG S63 in a straight-line.

AutoTopNL recently had the chance to drive the duo side-by-side on the Autobahn and have synced runs of the two luxury super sedans accelerating up to 315 km/h (196 mph).

What makes the range-topping 7-Series such a formidable rival is its twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 that pumps out 592 hp at 5500 rpm and 590 lb-ft of torque at 1500 rpm. Additionally, it features an M-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

Surprisingly, the M760Li is not that far behind the mighty S63 AMG that, with 603 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, clearly has the upper hand when it comes to performance. Even so, throughout most of the run, it’s within 5-10 km/h of its performance-focused foe from Stuttgart. Not bad for something that’s not a true M car.

BMW M760Li Flies To 320km/h Or 200MPH On The Autobahn 22

The acceleration abilities of the BMW M760Li xDrive have become a talking point since the vehicle’s launch but, as it turns out, it has performance abilities well beyond simply launching from a standstill to 100 km/h (62mph) faster than a lot of sports cars.

In fact, the M760Li is capable of truly phenomenal highway cruising speeds, as AutoTopNL recently discovered when testing the car out on the German Autobahn.

With a free road ahead of it, the M760Li was able to scream to 320 km/h (200 mph) without breaking a sweat. The Bavarian limo appears incredibly stable and composed at such high speeds, and is without a doubt the ultimate car in BMW’s range when it comes to ultra-fast highway cruising.

Making the M760Li such a straight-line beast is its twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 engine delivering 592 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This engine transfers all of its grunt to the road through a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

If Anything, You Can’t Miss Wald International’s BMW 7-Series Black Bison 21

The BMW 7-Series normally oozes sophisticated style, but if you’re looking for something different, Japanese tuner Wald International can certainly deliver.

The company has just unveiled its ‘Black Bison Edition’ of the latest-generation 7-Series and while Wald seems rather proud of its creation, we think other people might feel different about it.

At the front, the luxury sedan has been outfitted with a bespoke bumper that includes small faux air intakes, vertical daytime running lights, and a subtle chin spoiler. As for the sides, they feature five-spoke white wheels and bespoke skirts.

Completing the transformation is a new rear bumper with an over-the-top diffuser and quad tailpipes. Oh, and the car also sits closer to the road.

Mercedes S350d And BMW 730d Luxo-Diesel Sprint Test Reveals Similarities 19
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW, BMW 7-Series, BMW Videos, diesel, Drag-Racing, Film, mercedes, Mercedes S-Class, Mercedes Videos, video on 12 19th, 2017


In certain parts of the world, buying into either the Mercedes-Benz S-Class range, or the BMW 7-Series range, means opting for a base diesel version.

In both cases, you’d be looking at 3.0-liter inline-six engines, producing 265 PS (261 HP) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque in favor of the 7-Series, and 286 PS (282 HP) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque in favor of the S-Class.

According to AutoTopNL, this race is between a 730d that gets from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds and an S350d that needs just 5.8 seconds, which means it’s actually the 4MATIC version.

Either way, the BMW 730d is the lighter car here, regardless of whether or not the S350d is wearing its heavy, yet useful all-wheel drive suit. Now, while there are slight differences to observe, you’ll find that these two models are remarkably similar when it comes to accelerating in a straight line.

So whichever one you may be driving, we reckon it should handle various workloads just as well as its rival.

Atlantis Blue Paintjob Suits This BMW Individual 750Li Just Fine 10

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in BMW, BMW 7-Series, BMW Individual, Middle East on 12 10th, 2017


Some Middle Eastern markets can’t get enough of BMWs with wacky paintjobs and interiors, hence the multitude of flashy cars that emerge, quite often, from BMW Abu Dhabi Motors.

The latest one is a 750Li, which may not be the flagship version of the new 7-Series, but it’s still very quick, capable of reaching 100km/h (62mph) in 4.5sec, thanks to its 445hp and 650Nm (479lb-ft) of torque V8 engine.

However, its performance is not what interests us, in this case, because this particular example is finished in Atlantis Blue. The color, which is the work of BMW Individual, was also applied to other BMWs in the past, including several M3s and M4s, and represents a step away from the default black, grey, or white finishes that most customers prefer for the 7-Series.

Step inside, though, and you’ll see the bright red leather that covers the seats, door panels, lower part of the dashboard, and central console, contrasting its exterior and making the whole car more unique.

Now, for the right sum, Abu Dhabi Motors, which happens to be the world’s largest BMW dealership, would sell you an identical BMW 750Li, as this one is probably spoken for, and if you’re not fans of the flashy bits, then you could tell them exactly what you want and they’ll make it happen.

You Don’t Have To Choose A Boring Color For Your BMW M760Li, Do You? 9

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW, BMW 7-Series, BMW Individual, Middle East on 12 9th, 2017


Let’s say you’re about to spend a whole lot of money on BMW’s M760Li flagship and you’re now faced with having to choose its color, in which case something from BMW Individual’s palette tickle your fancy.

Abu Dhabi Motors is aware that some customers might want to skip the classic, but a bit boring, black, silver or white paintjobs for something a bit more colorful, so they held a photo shoot for all these different Bimmers in a variety of shades.

Some of them are San Marino Blue, Twilight Purple, Rallye Green, Chestnut Bronze, Estoril Blue, Imola Red and Austin Yellow. We’ve also added a Long Beach Blue example that previously spotted at the Abu Dhabi dealership.

Anyway, whatever color one might prefer, the M760Li is BMW’s fastest-accelerating saloon after the M5 thanks to its 6.6-liter twin turbo V12 that’s good for 600 PS (592 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.

Say hello to Abu Dhabi Motors, a place you’re probably familiar with thanks to all the BMW Individual cars and M models that are being showcased in their theater on a regular basis.

During a recent visit to the UAE, YouTuber Shmee150 stopped by the famed BMW dealer to not just check out some of the rides on display, but also drive BMW’s flagship, the M760Li.

In case you didn’t already know, Abu Dhabi Motors houses both BMW as well as Rolls-Royce cars, and if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll recognize a lot of models we’ve previously shown, like that green Alpina B4 S or the Rolls- Royce Dawn Inspired by Fashion.

We’re also given a better look at the theater section of the showroom, which is an actual theater and wasn’t just made to look like one. So you can go there and watch whatever car that’s on display, or actually watch something on the projector screen.

As for his ride behind the wheel of the M760Li, Shmee praised the car for its torque and effortless way of accelerating, saying it’s perfect for a high-speed Autobahn run. The M760Li is powered by a 6.6-liter V12, producing 610 PS (603 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.

One Of Only 899 BMW 750i XL L7 V12 Is A Rare Bird 25

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW, BMW 7-Series, used cars on 11 25th, 2017


While the third-generation BMW E38 7-Series was, at its time, a commercial success, the 750i XL L7 that was produced in just 899 examples is a very rare sighting.

According to the ad, found on German website Mobile.de, the car has just 19,800 km (12,303 miles) on the clock and is in really good condition, with the asking price set at €22,500, the equivalent of around $26,500 at today’s exchange rate.

Among its many features we count the 20″ Alpina alloys, the chrome exterior and interior elements, the sunroof, sun blinds, comfort front seats, electric comfort rear seats, CD player, multifunction steering wheel, sat-nav system and cruise control.

Even though the leather inside looks a bit worn, the cabin does indeed appear to be in top condition, especially for a car that’s almost 17 years old.

As for what lies under the hood of this Silver Metallic 750i XL, you’re looking at a 5.4-liter V12 that puts out 326 PS (321 HP) and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft) of torque, which are transmitted to the rear wheels via a 5-speed automatic gearbox.

Thanks to Christian for the tip!

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
Nov
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.
