Li test


This is the first time that Maxi Test has tested a car as a passenger. And we#146;ve got to admit it#44; on board the 760 Li#44; life is pretty royal. #40;by Jessica Paupinat#41;


We are on board an auditorium. Even on the cobbled streets of Paris the soundproofing is perfect. We settle into individual seats that are heated#44; ventilated and equipped with a lumbar support.

The legroom is ultra spacious.

We can choose to watch a DVD from amongst the 6 held in the loader or the television. Or simply choose to listen to one of the 6 audio CDs. All this is controlled by the famous iDrive system#44; which is both intuitive and easy to use. There is even a refrigerated compartment that can hold a few glasses and two bottles of champagne. Pure Luxury.

We can definitely testify that the finish has been largely improved unlike the first version of the 7 Series. This is a noticeable improvement. The 760 Li is 14 centimetres longer than the saloon version.

This can be seen mainly in the rear door. There are a few details that mark the difference like the V12 logo on the front wings and chrome inserts on the bumpers#44; the radiator grill and the roof as well as superb 19#45;inch alloy wheel rims.

Motorization: A V12 SOUL MATE

The BMW 760 Li is equipped with an all#45;new V12 with 445 horsepower and the sonority is spell binding. For the occasion#44; BMW inaugurate the first V12 in automobile history with direct injection#44; it is also equipped with the Valvetronic system. It has a torque of 600 Nm from 3#44;950 revs.

Compared to the older generation of German V12s#44; this one has gained 36#37; in power while its fuel consumption has dropped by 12#37;. As a result#44; BMW promise an average consumption of just 13.6 litres per 100 kms. Once at the wheel#44; the first impression you get is that this V12 is perfectly matched with the 7 Series.

Smooth#44; rich and powerful#44; it takes the 760 from 0 to 100 kph in 5#146;#146;6 with a maximum speed limited to 250 kph. Note that this V12 is also to be found under the bonnet of the new Rolls Royce Phantom. So#44; the 7 Series really has what it takes to be a limousine.

On the road: LIKE A SALOON

When it comes to road behaviour#44; we have already tested the 7 Series. The extra 14 cm on the wheelbase changes nothing about its reassuring character. And although at first it might be a bit intimidating getting behind the wheel of this kind of vehicle#44; it proves very easy to get used to. The steering is very precise.

The automatic 6#45;speed gearbox also has sport and sequential modes with the controls on the steering wheel. On the road it swallows up the miles with greatest of pleasure.
