An M badge! Is this a hardcore BMW 7 Series, then? No. That’s the wrong way to consider the new BMW M760 Li. Although it has a 6.6-litre twin turbo V12 developing 602bhp and 590lb ft, can hit a 189mph top speed and is, right now, the fastest accelerating car BMW makes (0-62mph in 3.7secs), it would be wrong to see this car as a pure M car. What is it then? A 7 Series first, and an M car second. Note that the badge reads M760, not M7, so it’s more akin to an M240i than M2 in its demeanour and angle of approach. So while it has been mildly sportified with the addition of retuned suspension, more rear-biased all-wheel drive and standard-fit active steering and four-wheel steering, none of this has been allowed to harm comfort or refinement. That’s the claim, anyway.
