This gold-wheeled V12 BMW 7 Series is not for the faint-hearted

Polish tuners modify Bavaria’s flagship saloon

With its *ahem* large grille, the BMW 7 Series is no longer the understated limo it once was. All the more reason, then, for the world’s tuners to start picking them up and slapping on some aftermarket bits, surely?

Normally that would be a recipe for disaster – but this M760Li xDrive from Polish tuners auto-Dynamics.pl is actually growing on us.

Of course, it helps that there’s a 6.6-litre V12 under the bonnet producing 577bhp and 627lb ft of torque – and that auto-Dynamics had the good sense to leave the engine well alone. Zero-62mph in 3.8 seconds is plenty fast enough for your chauffeur.

Instead the modifications are mostly visual. There’s a full styling package from Russian company Ronin Design which includes a new front lip, side skirts, roof spoiler, rear diffuser and boot spoiler. The whole thing is then finished in ‘Frozen Black’ paint – which helps tone down some of the more challenging aspects of BMW’s design.

And then there’s the wheels. Built by Vossen, they’re 22-inch forged aluminium units designed specifically for auto-Dynamics’ build. They’re also gold. Brave.

Other than the lowered air suspension, though, that’s about it for changes from the standard, long-wheelbase M760. What do you think, Internet?
