BMW HAS TODAY announced pricing for its flagship 760Li, a car the German manufacturer describes as the most comprehensively-equipped 7 Series model ever offered in Australia.

Developing 400kW and 750Nm through its brand-new 6.0 litre twin-turbocharged V12, BMW says the 760Li will leap to 100km/h happens in just 4.6 seconds - a time that was considered supercar-quick not so long ago.

BMW says the 760Li marks “a new standard of motoring refinement, dynamic performance and all-around efficiency in a vehicle with this kind of power and output”. Given the numbers accompanying the announcement, that claim would seem to carry more than a measure of substance.

Despite the car's not inconsiderable dimensions, BMW claims combined-cycle consumption figures of 13 litres per 100km - 5.1 percent better than the figures returned by the previous V12.

Direct-injection, variable intake and exhaust camshafts, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a torque curve that sees all 750Nm available from just 1500rpm help the 760Li keep fuel consumption to a minimum.

“The new 760Li will take over the top position within BMW’s model portfolio," Stavros Yallouridis, Managing Director of BMW Group Australia said.

"[It] will raise the standard of maximum exclusivity and supremacy in the luxury class to an even higher level."

Standard features, beyond those of the 750Li, include 20-inch double-spoke light-alloy wheels, Integral Active Steering, active front seats, leather finished instrument panel, ceramic surround for controls, fine-wood inlay leather steering wheel and a massage function in the rear-seat backrest.

BMW Individual rear-seat reading lights, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, alcantara headliner, and BMW Individual full ‘Merino’ leather trim round out the luxurious appointments of the 760Li.



Where the previous flagship 750Li started at $291,000, the new range-topping 760Li enters at $385,000 (manufacturer's list price), plus on-road costs.
