The 610 hp, 800 Nm BMW M760Li xDrive is a formidable beast, one which brings turbocharged V12 power to the G11/12 7 Series line-up. Here, a new video goes into detail describing the items which make the M760Li stand out from its lesser sibings.

To recap, the BMW M760Li’s mighty twin-turbocharged 6.6 litre V12 engine propels the big sedan from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and onwards to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, which can be raised to 305 km/h if the optional M Driver’s Package is specified.

As standard, the M760Li wears the M Performance front fascia featuring large air intakes, with black window frames and prominent exhaust tips. If this outfit is too overtly sporty and brash for BMW’s well-heeled customers, there is a more discreet alternative to this luxury, which gives the large sedan a name almost as long as the car itself: the BMW M760Li xDrive Model V12 Excellence.

A greater amount of chrome is apparent on the even more luxurious variant of the M760Li, with a chrome bar extending across the full width of the front, with a pair of LED DRLs bookending the chrome item. More chrome features on the kidney grilles and its surrounds, while the window frames are chromed here too. At the rear end, a chrome tailpipe embellisher extends across the width of the rear bumper.

Of course, we’d have to mention the Alpina B7 as well, particularly in the context of upper-end 7 Series variants. The Buchloe-based outfit gives its uprated 7 Series what appears to be an identical amount of horsepower and torque, albeit from a 4.4 litre turbocharged V8 rather than the BMW’s V12. and in Alpina fashion, has its exterior based on the standard, non-M Performance styling, with a customised interior.
