We love the autobahn and have enjoyed driving at triple-digit speeds on the smooth blacktop on many occasions – and we'd love to do that again the M760Li xDrive, because it appears to be the ideal ‘bahn-stormer.
Packing a 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12, all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering, this 610 horse Bimmer which can do 0-100kph in just 3.7 seconds, would be an absolute blast to drive with your foot buried in the carpet and touch the 250kph top speed. It isn’t as fast as the Alpina B7 (it does 310 kph…) but producing a massive 800Nm of torque from 1,550rpm, the very first M Performance 7 Series model sure can move.
The Excellence version gets a plush exterior featuring high-gloss polished 20in wheels with a W-spoke design, silver kidney grille, additional chrome accents, and wood inlays for the steering wheel. As for the cabin, it gets an exclusive M leather steering wheel, door sill plates with an illuminated V12 logo, electrically adjustable front comfort seats and an Alcantara Anthracite headliner with loads of Nappa leather trim all over the place. As you’d expect, it packs loads of tech too from the Driving Assistant Plus system to the Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function not to mention the new generation of the Surround View system with a 3D View and Panorama View option. Best of all however is the gesture control system. The M760Li xDrive won’t come cheap; it’ll cost around Dh565,000.
No, we can’t think of more luxurious – and clever way - to travel at 250kph down the autobahn…
