Exclamation 2010 BMW 760Li (V12 Twin Turbo) revealed!

BMWUSA today announces the new 760Li

Key features:
  • 6.0l V-12 MSD87-12 544 hp and 553 lb-ft
  • 8-speed automatic
  • 0-60: 4.6s
  • 19" wheels standard

BMW's official press packet ==> http://www.7post.com/goodiesforyou/f...i_760Li_GB.doc

Official Press Release:

Quote:
The new BMW 7 Series already sets the benchmark in luxury performance motoring – and now BMW is moving up the standard of maximum exclusivity and supremacy in this supreme class to an even higher level, following a completely new definition: The new BMW 760i and the new BMW 760Li are taking over the top position within BMW’s model portfolio, representing the highest level of motoring refinement in their segment.
The heart and foundation of this exceptional new standard comes from the twelve-cylinder power unit featured in both top models in the BMW 7 Series. Developed as a completely new engine from the ground up, the V12 is a master¬piece of modern engine technology. Superior power of 400 kW/544 hp comes at an engine speed of 5,000 rpm, with maximum torque of 750 Newton-metres (553 lb-ft) from just 1,500 rpm.
Combined with the likewise brand-new eight-speed automatic transmission, this twelve-cylinder offers not only unparalleled motoring refinement, but also supreme driving dynamics through its ability to convert seemingly unlimited power reserves spontaneously and with precise control at all times into supreme driving dynamics.
Once again, BMW’s twelve-cylinder power unit is the epitome of refined performance, grand touring comfort, and stylish exclusivity. The new BMW 760i as well as the new BMW 760Li with its wheelbase extended by 14 centimetres or 5.5" for particular comfort – if not to say, luxury – at the rear, provide the clear answer to the question as to what one may expect of a genuine luxury performance saloon, with fascinating new features underscoring BMW’s claim to leadership in the luxury segment.
The drivetrain with all its technical features is a masterpiece of supremacy in every respect. This applies both to the 6.0-litre all-aluminium power unit with TwinPower Turbo Technology, ¬High Precision Injection with fuel injected directly into the combustion chambers, and to BMW’s infinite double-VANOS camshaft adjustment as well as the eight-speed automatic transmission featured for the first time in a BMW.
Benefiting from all these technologies, the new BMW 760i and the BMW 760Li offer a new standard of motoring refinement, dynamic performance and all-round efficiency in a vehicle with this kind of power and output. Acceleration to 100 km/h comes in just 4.6*) seconds, average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is 12.9*) litres/100 kilometres on the new BMW 760i.
In determining the cars’ fuel consumption, BMW’s engineers have already taken the stricter EU5 emission standard into account, meaning that with the cars’ performance improving significantly fuel consumption is down by approximately 4.5 per cent versus the former model.

Wow turbos taking over the world! I just noticed that the S600 is a bi-turbo as well.

Uh... so where do efficient dynamics and less overall weight come into play with the recent releases of BMW?

Guess that interview a while back was more future looking than we thought lol...

this 760Li looks amazing, and has put me in a big dilemma as to whether I should order this or (the 2009 maserati quattroporte, 2009 Continental Flying Spur, Aston Martin Rapide) to replace my current individual 760Li....

Wow what an amazing car. The cut-aways are some of the nicest I've seen. Does anyone know if it's 3D or real?

Unbelievable! All I can say is WOW to that horsepower and torque. I only wish the car looked a little more unique - ie with a more CS like front end... and different taillights or something.

keep in mind that the 8 speed tranny will be also available in the TT V8 model.

Dinan is not too far from my house. I'm hoping they can provide a little software boost to our TTV8 soon!!!! In fact, I'm gonna stop by and see Steve Dinan in the next week... Give me another 40 hp and 65 pounds of torque for $1500, please!

This is truly shock and awe for me. I will now shut up about the X6 ///M debacle as I am glad BMW didn't call this the M7.

At this rate the next ///M5 will be 700 hp

That would be redundant since the 5 series, in M5 form, will (most probably) get the new S63 V8 from the X5/X6 M with 555hp and 500ft-lb.

I would like to see an M version of this new V12 though. 700hp should be possible if they apply the same tune as they have in going from N63->S63.
