2004 BMW 760i Road And Review: BMW#8217;s Technology

Rating: 10.0/ 10 (1 vote

A honk of the horn forced my back to the road, and that#8217;s it hit me #8211; no matter how efficient or you are with using BMW#8217;s system, it is still a major I had almost run off the road while to adjust the radio station, and the behind me honked his horn to get my back where it should been #8211; on the road.

aside, the 2004 BMW 760 is an incredible one that earned huge from our staff for its road powertrain, comfort and dare we styling? The controversial 7-series has on us, and our staffers now fawn over the from BMW. Comments the 760i included, #8220;The looks muscular without cold,#8221; and #8220;BMW wheels always been gorgeous, but the on the 760i are downright ….#8221;

Those … 19-inch wheels are stretched to the far corners of the not only to improve handling and but to give the car a sportier appearance. The #8220;twin kidney#8221; grill of the resembles BMWs of days by, albeit with a touch of a make over. The 760i distinguishes itself from seven-series cars with accents and a little tattle-tale on the front fenders that V12.

And speaking of tails, that rear end. And it#8217;s still a bit abrupt, learning to like it. One staffer that the E65 body style a striking similarity to the E39 profile by out, #8220;If you look the E65#8242;s C-pillar is more E39 generation BMW 5-series] than the E60 generation BMW 5-series].#8221;

Inside, the 760i is nothing but class. From the large and 14-way power, heated and massaging rear seats to the Alcantra suede headliner, the pampers its occupants. The perfect fit and of the wood-trimmed and brushed aluminum interior further reinforces a of stately quality, and while the price tag on the 2004 760i may what many folks in America have paid for homes, we can honestly say that it be difficult to live in the 760i it#8217;s that comfy.

In to the top notch fit and finish, the BMW 760i some incredible technological Inside, there are individual controls for all four corners of the When combined with the seats that offer heating or cooling and massage it#8217;s easy to be lulled a complete state of relaxation great for whisking away the of the day.

Conversely, a secondary iDrive resides in the rear cabin, so that your passengers can in your frustration (or find to activate the soothing massage of the seats).

But don#8217;t let all of the luxury fool you into thinking the is a hoity-toity, high brow cruiser. The real technology under the hood, in the form of an 6.0-liter V12 with double cams and a Bi-Vanos Valvetronic that generates 440 horsepower with 444 pound-feet of run-flat torque. BMW assures us that the motor shares nothing the previous generation#8217;s 5.0-liter

No sir, the boys from really tweaked their caps for the new powerplant.

The 6.0-liter V12 direct injection, a first for a powered V12 (diesel powerplants been using direct for some time, with success). The benefits of direct include more power, throttle response, increased efficiency and better fuel Rather than having delivered to the combustion chamber via an port, direct injection the fuel to be delivered precisely to the chamber.

The change to direct does away with the throttle body, and replaces the valve assemblies with adjustable variable intake This technology is similar to of the BMW M5 #8211; there are 12 individual blades, and each can meter air to its own individually.

Other nifty include a liquid cooled that increases output reducing noise, a revised system (variable camshaft and a special silicon-impregnated aluminum dubbed #8220;Alusil#8221; is used in the of the engine block and cylinder The net result of all of these technological is an engine that pulls runs silk smooth and nary an unwanted sound the cabin (save for at full where the engine sings the best of them).

The six-speed automatic transmission in harmony with the big V12, and to full manual controls mounted at the #8220;10-and-2 position#8221; on the wheel in the form of push the driver retains the option of things up himself whenever the strikes. Our only complaint the 7-series transmission controls is the complex and unnecessarily tiny lever that#8217;s mounted to the column. We#8217;re sure it second nature after a but therein lies the problem a shifter stalk shouldn#8217;t #8220;training#8221; to use.

On the road, the 760i is an absolute Never mind all of the technological that surrounds you, impressive is how well the car rides, handles and responds.

And while the seems big when it#8217;s in the driveway, it conveys a surprising of svelteness on the road. We had to remind that the 760i weighs 4,900 pounds as we pushed it through turn after and hauled it down from miles per hour in distances rival most sports
