2015 BMW 760 Overview
- Available in extended wheelbase versions only
- 535-hp, twin-turbo 6.0-liter, V-12 engine
- Packed with luxurious features
Topping off the German luxury automaker’s lineup is the 2015 BMW 760 full-size sedan, which comes with a plethora of luxury comforts and a powerful twin-turbo V-12 under the hood.
Styling updates now two years old include an enlarged front grille and a larger air intake that runs the width of the car. 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 work cuts weight which helps fuel economy. Adaptive xenon HID headlights are standard, with full LED headlights and automatic high-beams optional.
The 760 is one of the few vehicles left to use a 12-cylinder engine. The twin-turbo, 6.0-liter V-12 is good for 535-hp, which is driven through the rear wheels. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard and fuel economy estimates check in at 13/20 mpg city/highway.
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.
