2013 BMW 760 Overview
Meant to be the ultimate in ultimate driving machines, the 2013 BMW 760 offers V-12 power and a long list of amenities.
The 760 is the most powerful member of BMW’s flagship 7-Series. For 2013, the 760 gets many of the same changes put in place across the whole 7-Series lineup. They include a larger front grille and a restyled front with a larger air intake that runs the width of the car, new LED headlight accents, and revisions to the taillights and rear fascia. Inside there are new front seats, ambient lighting, and an optional Bang & Olufsen stereo.
The line-topping 760 is only offered in long-wheel base form, which adds 5.5-inches of overall length and increases the amount of rear legroom. Liberal use of aluminum in the body cuts weight which helps fuel economy. Adaptive xenon HID headlights are standard, with a full LED headlight setup and automatic high-beams are optional.
Under the hood, the 760 has a gigantic engine: a twin-turbo, 6.0-liter V-12 that makes 535-horsepower. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while xDrive all-wheel drive is available. It can send up to 80 percent of power to the rear wheels if needed, keeping acceleration and handling traits similar to those of the rear-wheel-drive sedan.
Inside, the 760’s focus is luxury, with a side of luxury, topped with luxury. Its extended wheelbase makes it suitable as a chauffeur-type vehicle as well. BMW’s iDrive system has been revised to make it easier to use and comes standard, with a 10.2-inch high-definition screen. Also standard are four-zone automatic climate control, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, leather upholstery, and many, many more. Rear massaging and ventilated seats are optional, as is a rear entertainment system with dual screens.
Standard safety features include eight airbags, an electronic stability control system, and antilock brakes. A lane departure warning system, blind spot warning system, and night vision with pedestrian detection are optional.
