Here are a few select reviews on the new M760i, overall a very positive reception to the absolute fastest accelerating new BMW you can get right now

One of the heavier BMW's, yet the fastest accelerating one..

If they could just make the front end look like an f8x I'd probably buy one.

Some black grilles will help.

Nope and there is some old info in those. Power was upped to 610 and the 0-100km/h lowered to 3.6sec.

I've seen 0-100km/h in 3.42sec instrumented, though launch control was not used. That should shave just a smidge more off. Oh and it's almost 100lbs lighter than the B7...go figure.

Here's a Canadian review as well (English and Chinese):

They've got some really nice photos from that media launch, plus some added track videos and exhaust notes.

To me that engine sounds like a cross between the M2 and S65 AMG:

I suppose it must be that they put the mic somewhere close to the exhaust, otherwise I can't image the car being so loud in the normal driving conditions.

Amazing car according to all the reviews, but I wish it looked more agressive... Like an M7

I did a quick M7 render a while ago that looked like the below...

I was thinking that too. The video that I saw (linked below) has the mic mounted right above the exhaust, apparently to show its true sound rather than the ones piped through the speakers.

Front end of the G11 looks like a buck toothed truck. Not sleek at all.

Wish they would put that v12 in the next M5 and help shake up the segment a bit. Bet it could do much better than the 601 hp that it presently does in the 760i.

2:38, acceleration seemed to be like, bad I think the Alipina B7 would be a better option but I think the 2018 760 looks like the best G-model BMW but in terms of performance.. maybe it's designed to carry heavy heavy armor to be used as a Presidential vehicle

Or perhaps...

That's the steepest (about 1200' vertical) and shortest (just under 1/2mi) uphill switchback section of the road and there is a 500k lb boulder very close to the road edge on the right and protrudes out a little about 8' over ones roof? Often there is a motorcycle overlooking it in the opposite direction too.
