Available exclusively in long wheel-base form, the 760i will be priced at $386,000* and offers a very high level of standard equipment as well as a comprehensive no-cost option program to ensure each car is tailored to the owner's specific needs.
Replacing the M6 convertible as the most expensive model in BMW's line-up, the new 760i features a newly developed all-aluminium 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine developing 400kW of power and 750Nm of torque.
0-100km/h is achieved in just 4.6 seconds while also managing respectable fuel economy returns of 13.0 litres per 100km (combined). CO2 emissions are 303 grams per kilometre.
“The combination of twelve cylinders and the new eight-speed automatic transmission ensures a maximum of sophistication, refinement and exclusivity in the luxury segment,” says Stavros Yallouridis, managing director of BMW Group Australia. “The 760Li is the most comprehensively equipped BMW ever offered in Australia. In addition, our no-cost option program will ensure the car is perfectly tailored to the exacting requirements of our V12 customers.”
In the face of difficult economic times Australian customers responded favourably to the arrival earlier this year of the new BMW 7 Series. Sales of the BMW flagship increased 70 per cent to 190 units so far this year. The 7 Series is currently the market leader in its segment accounting for almost 40 per cent of all sales in 2009.
The new flagship model will join the existing BMW 7 Series range, which currently includes the 730d, 740i, 740Li, 750i and 750Li. Orders can be placed now with first deliveries expected in mid-December.
