The M760Li is the BMW who thinks it’s a Rolls-Royce, because, in fact, it almost is. The high-end version 7, which for the first time ever received attention from the M division, is a Rolls-Royce in every way but its name: the chassis, the V12 engine with 600 horsepower, the automatic gearbox with eight speeds and the beautiful infotainment iDrive system will be the base elements for the next Phantom, which Rolls-Royce will show this year.
Aside from its majestic appearance and a smoothness in everything it does – which no other BMW could ever do – the M760Li also offers staggering performances, thanks to the 12-cylinder Twin-Turbo and an exceptional dynamic behaviour for a berlina that is over five metres long.
From the quality of the materials to the intense leather scent, the Bowers & Wilkins sound system and the screens in the back of the headrests, incorporated fridge and integrated tablet-control of all the electronic devices in the car. What will BMW have to do differently in the new Rolls-Royce to be the best BMW ever? It’s unimaginable.
