BMW 760Li Special Edition Exclusive Stratus Grey / Ecru

The most successful 7 Series in the history of BMW is once again setting the standard in the luxury performance class: With significantly enhanced performance on the same - to a certain extent even lower - fuel consumption, with optimised suspension features, the enhanced iDrive control system, and with equipment raised to a new, unprecedented level, the BMW 7 Series is once again substantiating its claim to leadership.

Refinement in design visibly expresses the car`s enhanced driving dynamics and sporting performance at very first sight, unmistakable presence giving the BMW 7 Series its very own, elegant and charismatic character, as before.

Five out of six engines either new or thoroughly updated.

With the exception of the top-of-the-range V12 power unit in the BMW 760i/Li, the BMW 7 Series features a largely new range of power units as of spring 2005. Looking first at the models with an eight-cylinder petrol engine, the BMW 750i/Li and the BMW 740i/Li are replacing the former BMW 745i/Li and BMW 735i/Li. The BMW 740d is making way for the BMW 745d with its all-new eight-cylinder diesel engine, and the straight-six diesel power unit of the BMW 730d has been fundamentally revised and updated. The entry-level BMW 730i/Li, finally, now comes with the straight-six petrol engine featuring a composite magnesium/aluminium crankcase carried over from the BMW 630i.

Six-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic is standard on all models.

All engines excel through their high output per litre, their wide useful speed range, their "beefy" torque curve, excellent running refinement and moderate fuel consumption.
