Cast your mind back almost 20 years to the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Pierce Brosnan drove an E38 BMW 750iL from the back seat to its eventual destruction. While the modern Bond once again has a penchant for British cars, the sixth generation BMW 7 Series in 750i and 750Li is the definition of luxury and performance for the brand.
The premium 7 Series has been upgraded to offer class-first technology and fresh levels of chassis refinement. The 750i and 750Li join the rest of the 7 Series range, launched late last year, which consists of the 730d, 740i and 740Li.
Priced from $289,600 plus on-road costs for the 750i, buyers wanting to stretch rear leg room will also need to stretch their budgets with a starting price of $312,700 for the flagship 750Li model (a range-topping BMW M760Li xDrive model is coming in 2017).
