The new 760i and 760Li will use a 5972cc V12 engine producing 537bhp and 553lb ft of torque. The all new V12 is also the first ever use of a twin-turbo charged V12 unit in the flagship 7-series.
This has resulted in a substantial power increase over the outgoing model, with over 100bhp added to the new 760i and an increase in torque of 25 percent.
Despite the performance increases, BMW has improved the efficiency of the new 7-series, decreasing fuel consumption by 4.5 per cent. That means the new 760i will return 21.9mpg, in part thanks to a newly developed 8-speed automatic transmission.
