PostHeaderIcon BMW M760Li xDrive by BMW Individual

You can be excused if you’ve become increasingly frustrated with BMW and the seemingly long wait for the M7 to arrive, if it ever arrives to begin with. Truth be told, it’s become an exercise in patience itself just to wait for the flagship sedan. The presence of the M760Li xDrive, which BMW launched in late 2016, isn’t helping that long and arduous wait, either. But the good news is that we still do have the M760Li xDrive as opposed to not having one at all. It may not be the M7, but it could pass as one if you ignore the fact that it isn’t. Makes sense, right?

That’s not the point of all this, though, because to BMW’s credit, it is at least doing its part to make the M760Li xDrive more interesting with the luxury saloon’s first go in the world of BMW Individual. As you can imagine, a car that’s already brimming with luxury appointments like the M760Li xDrive is going to be a little difficult to improve from an aesthetic standpoint because, well, it already has everything a customer would probably want in a saloon short of it actually having its own portable butler. (Hmm…)

Good thing then that BMW Individual isn’t bound by what a car already has, but what a car could still have to go on top of what it already has. And so, the German automaker’s very own personalization division went to work on the M760Li xDrive and presented it with a series of new options that are meant to entice customers on seeing the seemingly limitless customization potential of the saloon.

You think the BMW M760Li xDrive already has everything? Well, try telling BMW Individual that. Just don’t mention anything about the M7, because, well, that’s for BMW to answer.

BMW M760Li xDrive-0

The V12 engine was supposed to be dead and gone for about six years now, but thanks to the magic of turbocharging, and a healthy disregard for the “green” opinions, the thing is still going strong. Meet the 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive, the range-topping version of the new 7er with a 612 horsepower 6.6-litre V12 engine!

The latest iteration of BMW’s V12 powerhouse, which is also found in all Rolls-Royce models, pumps out 448 kW/610 hp at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) at 1,550 rpm in the BMW M760Li xDrive. That oomph translates on the road into a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.7 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – 305 km/h (189 mph) with the M Driver’s Package. Despite this ferocious turns of speed the engine remains relatively light on fuel, averaging about 13 liters per 100 km or 22 mpg imp.

Boasting an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission as well as xDrive all-wheel-drive, BMW M760Li xDrive offers not just plenty of speed, but exquisite sure-footedness and excellent comfort. The car comes with M brakes and suspension as well as exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in matt Cerium Grey metallic. And then there is the host ot techie features such as Integral Active Steering system, Driving Assistant Plus system which includes the Steering and lane control assistant, Lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection, Rear collision prevention and Crossing traffic warning functions.

Obviously, such a top-end model comes with a magnificent interior the highlights of which include electrically adjustable front comfort seats with memory function and the Fineline black fine wood interior trim strips with high-gloss metal, high-quality deep-pile floor mats in the rear compartment and an Alcantara Anthracite headliner, and Nappa leather trim for the seat surfaces, seat side sections, head restraints, door cards, centre armrests and side armrests.

PostHeaderIcon Chestnut Bronze Alpina B7 Is Rarity Multiplied

Chestnut Bronze Alpina B7-0

What you are looking at here might appear a disturbingly brown 7 Series Bimmer to an uninterested eye, but an aficionado will be quick to realize this thing is quite possibly the rarest, coolest, most richly adorned car luxury saloon in the world. This is a fully-loaded Alpina B7 bi-turbo in Chestnut Bronze complete with BMW Individual options.

This car is the only Alpina B7 in this configuration, and yes, like any other one-off BMW it is a resident of the Abu Dhabi showroom. The exclusive paint job on this bad boy is complemented not just with the Alpina’s subtle body kit, but also with the tuner’s classic wheels and graphics in gold which is a nice complement for the color. The car also has a matching interior loaded with every conceivable creature comfort and connectivity and entertainment equipment. This thing really is a brown palace on wheels.

As for the technical stuff, the BMW Alpina B7 Bi-Turbo ALLRAD 038, to give its full name, boasts a 608 horsepower 4.4 liter 8-cylinder engine with twin-turbo charging, gasoline direct injection and Valvetronic. With the help of the all-wheel-drive the car accelerates in just 3.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph and can reach a top speed of up to 193 mph. But the B7 is not just about speed and acceleration but also exquisite comfort, thanks mainly to the 2-axle air suspension system combined with Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 7 Series Rose Quartz Edition

Remember when the U.S. used to receive a good number of special edition vehicles from automakers all over the world? It still happens to a certain extent, but it seems that a lot of BMW’s desirable limited edition cars are headed elsewhere, most notably to our friends over in Japan. And so, after staring longingly at this new special edition from Bimmer, I present to you the 7 Series Rose Quartz Edition.

As most of you can expect, this is not a “standard” 7 Series, even though I’m fully aware of the paradox that comes with mentioning the words “standard” and “7 Series” in one sentence. But it’s also true because the 7 Series Rose Quartz has a menu of nice features that are exclusive to it. Even better, BMW has based the special edition 7er on the 750Li, which means that in addition to its unique add-ons, it also carries a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that pumps out 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, enough to propel it from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The 7 Series Rose Quartz will make its debut on November 2, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Osaka. There’s no mention yet on how many units of the special edition 7 Series will be made available to the public. What I do know is that unless somebody finds a way to import these units to the U.S., the only way to get them is if you’re in Japan and you have 20.19 million yen to spare, or the equivalent of $193,900 based on current exchange rates.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 750i By Noelle Motors

As one of the true stalwarts of BMW’s entire lineup, the 7 Series has represented the pinnacle of German luxury for almost 40 years. And as customers continue to flock towards the 7 Series, don’t expect it to just fade off into the sunset anytime soon. Even aftermarket tuners have shown some love and affection towards the big 7. The latest to do so is Noelle Motors, and it’s promising a three-stage engine upgrade package that gives the 750i variant as much as 629 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque.

Those who aren’t familiar with Noelle Motors should know that the man behind the company is Karl-Otto Noelle, once the head of engine development for Alpina back in the 1980s. Noelle gained acclaim in his time with Alpina with his ability to extract added power from the engines using methods pertaining to turbocharging. Noelle’s wealth of knowledge in engine modifications has translated in modern times as his own tuning company has earned its own reputation as one of the best BMW tuners in the business.

Even though it lacks any exterior and interior upgrades, this program for the 750i achieves its intended goal because it focused on the thing it does best: engine upgrades.

And for those who are wondering if the power improvements are enough to justify purchasing any of the three-stage kits, don’t stop here. Keep reading and find out for yourselves.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 740e iPerformance

Gasoline/electric hybrids are becoming more widely accepted these days, and even luxury automakers are stepping up their games. Audi, Lexus, Porsche, and of course, BMW all have hybrid options that range in cost and levels of luxury. Though it might not make financial sense to purchase an expensive luxury car just to save a few dollars at the pump, many European city centers are banning non-hybrid vehicle use, making well-to-do folks in need of something classier than a Nissan Leaf.

Enter the BMW 740e iPerformance. Now before jumping into the details, it’s important to understand BMW’s logic with the iPerformance badging. Just like its M Performance lineup – standard BMW models with the performance upgrades from the famed M division, iPerformance vehicles will be based on standard series-production BMWs, but will have some i Division electrification performance added in. Just as the M235i isn’t as sporty as the M3, the iPerformance vehicles won’t be as “electrified” or as efficient as honest i Division vehicles like the i3 or i8.

This new iPerformance line is debuting here, on the 7-Series. BMW will offer two flavors – the 740e iPerformance and the 740Le iPerformance. The 740Le is an extended length model that offers the option of BMW’s xDrive AWD system. We’ll be concentrating on the 740e iPerformance in this review.

The 2017 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance is now in production and will arrive at U.S. dealerships in August of 2016 starting at $89,100.

Update 08/11/2016: BMW has announced the 740e xDrive iPerformance will arrive in U.S. showrooms in August with a starting price just under $90,000. Check out the “Prices” section for all the details.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 750Li Celebration Edition

BMW has been busy celebrating its 100th anniversary all year and has decided to drop a number of “Celebration Edition” models to as a way to celebrate and grab some extra money from consumers. We’ve already covered a couple of these models – including the M6 Celebration Edition Competition and theBMW 320d Celebration Edition “Style Edge.” Now, we’re getting a look at the BMW 7 Series Celebration Edition Individual. As the name states, the model is based on the 7 Series (specifically the 750Li) and has a number of BMW Individual options as standard equipment.

Of course, standard is really the last word I should have really used there, as this model will be limited to 70 units, all of which will be right-hand drive. As such, it will retain the 750Li’s 4.4-liter V-8 but has been customized by BMW Individual to make it unique among other 7 Series models. With that said, these celebration models come at a fairly steep price compared to their conventional counterparts, with Bimmer hoping to grab up every extra cent it can as it continues to boast its 100 years as a company.

The 7 Series Celebration Edition Individual is slated to go on sale on July 9th, at which point Bimmer fans with deep pockets will likely snatch them up like hot cakes. So, let’s not waste any more time and focus on what makes this particular “Celebration Edition” so special.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 750d xDrive and BMW 750Ld xDrive

Up until now, getting a diesel-powered BMW 7 Series meant you had to go for 730 or 740 model variants, but now BMW is adding a diesel powertrain to the 750 with the BMW 750d xDrive and BMW 750Ld xDrive. So not only do you have the choice between the normal and long-wheelbase 750, but you also get a brand new diesel engine that BMW claims to be the “world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine.”

Back in July of last year, it was announced that BMW was considering a Quad-Turbo Diesel Engine, then just a few weeks ago, BMW unveiled its newest piece of engine evolution that sure did feature a total of four turbochargers. According to BMW, the new quad-turbo diesel engine offers a five-percent increase in horsepower and an 11-percent reduction in emissions output. We’ve known for a while that the engines first tour of service would be in the 750, but we didn’t know it would happen so quickly.

The 7 Series entered its sixth generation for the 2016 model year and was based on BMW’s modular CLAR platform – a platform that was focused on weight reduction and structural strength. As such, the car was redesigned from the ground up with a new Carbon Core passenger cell, a 50/50 weight distribution, and a whole new, sporty look. Here in the U.S. we only get gasoline-powered versions of the 740i and 750i, and sadly, the new 750d and 750Ld aren’t slated to cross the Atlantic either. Be that as it may, we decided to take a closer look at it anyway, so keep reading to learn more about the new 750Ld and 750d models.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Unveils Quad-Turbo Diesel Engine

While most U.S. buyers continue to stay away from diesel engines — and that’s not likely to change anytime soon due to last year’s “Dieselgate” scandal — the oil burner remains a popular choice in Europe, where cars running on this fuel make up about 50 percent of the market (compared to only three percent in North America). All mainstream automakers offer at least one diesel option nowadays, while premium manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi provide performance-oriented, yet still efficient oil burners. BMW, for instance, used to offer a massive 4.4-liter V-8 in the E65 7 Series before switching to the tri-turbo, 3.0-liter inline-six in the F01 generation. Now, the tri-turbo is being retired to make room for brand-new diesel that has four turbochargers.

Set to make its debut in the 750d xDrive model that previously used the tri-turbo, the new quad-turbo oil burner cranks out 394 horsepower form 4,000 rpm and a whopping 561 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 rpm. That’s an impressive 79 horses and 61 pound-feet more than the 3.0-liter six-cylinder in the 740d and an 18-horsepower and 15-pound-feet increase over the previous-generation 750d. Performance is also impressive, with the upcoming 750d expected to hit 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds, a benchmark that makes it only two tenths slower than the V-8-powered, gasoline 750i xDrive model.

More powerful than any other diesel developed by BMW thus far, the new quad-turbo unit is also more fuel efficient. BMW doesn’t give specific numbers, but claims that fuel consumption has been reduced by five percent. The new diesel engine will mate to the same eight-speed automatic available across the entire 7 Series lineup. No word on pricing yet, but we’ll be back with info as soon as BMW spills the beans.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 7 Series Centennial Edition

BMW is celebrating its centenary in 2016 and it has already started the party with the wild Vision Next 100 Concept. The Germans will introduce Vision show cars for the Mini, Rolls-Royce, and BMW Motorrad brands, but the anniversary year will also bring a few limited-edition production models in dealerships. The first to arrive is the 7 Series Centennial Edition, a special-edition lineup consisting of three models crafted by the company’s Individual division.

Like many Individual Bimmers out there, the Centennial Edition features an exclusive exterior finish, unique wheels, and a uber-luxurious interior wrapped in high-grade leather and other expensive materials. All models will feature hand-crafted signets bearing the lettering “The Next 100 Years,” just like the concept with the similar name.

Customers will be able to order this limited package on the hybrid 740Le, the V-8-powered 750Li, and the V-12-powered M760Li, all of which are part of the new sixth-generation 7 Series lineup. Pricing is not yet available, but production will be limited to only 100 units.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 750Li xDrive Solitaire and Master Class Edition

BMW Individual is literally the best way for BMW owners to customize their vehicles specifically to their liking. The “Individual Manufactory” offers unlimited possibilities when it comes to making a Bimmer stand out in a crowd. For the exterior, BMW Individual offers more than 100 different color finishes, and on the inside, there is a huge selection of different materials and modifications to choose from. Furthermore, customers can propose a color that isn’t on the individual color pallet, and choose a handcrafted Coachline. It’s not unheard of for customers to have initials or logos applied to various sections of the interior, or supply their own materials. Customers have even used wood derived from trees on their own property for different trim inserts.

It’s really amazing what BMW Individual can do, and every model that leaves the factory is truly unique. BMW Individual also develops market-specific editions or special models like the BMW 750Li xDrive Solitaire and Master Class Editions. Frank van Meel, the CEO of BMW M, said, “The BMW Individual Manufactory is not so much a place where masterful craftsmen provide vehicles with solutions that are tailor-made to the individual ideas of our customers, but rather an attitude driven by the aspiration to offer maximum customer orientation and to ensure that our customers’ wishes become reality.”

So, with that said, let’s take a look at the two latest special editions to roll out of the Individual manufactory. These two editions are about as bespoke as it gets, and are being produced in very limited quantities. There will only be six examples of the Solitaire Edition, and just one example of the Master Class edition.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M760Li xDrive V12 Excellence

The 2017 BMW M7760Li XDrive is obviously one luxurious sedan, and has plenty of power as well. That V-12 engine under the hood pumps out 600 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. A 0-to-62 mph time of 3.92 seconds indicates the car’s top speed of 155 mph comes rather fast. That’s good and all, but some have said the exterior is just too dramatic for a luxury sedan. If you want more of a discreet, large sedan, you would have to look elsewhere – until now.

BMW has just announced the BMW 760Li XDrive Excellence – a no cost option for those hoping for a more down to earth luxury sedan. By changing the exterior styling and adding in some chrome here and there, the 760Li XDrive Excellence has its own personality. Most changes come to the exterior of the M760Li, but there are a few changes to the interior as well. The best part is, it is a no-cost option for the M760Li, so those opting for it won’t have to pony up any extra cheddar.

Now that you know a little about this new, optional model, it’s time we take a look at it. If you’re considering going for a 7 Series anytime soon, it’s certainly worth your time to consider this package. There are enough changes to distinguish the Excellence model from the standard M760Li that it is derived from.

Say hello to the Bavarian’s latest uber-luxury ground-bound missile. Based on the sixth-generation 7 Series, this velocity limo walks and talks like an M7, but an M7 it is not. Maybe it’s not quite hardcore enough to bear the M Division nomenclature, but either way, there’s no doubt this thing brings the goods when it comes to going fast. Inside, you’ll find a capacious cabin space dripping in luxury and technology, while the exterior is subtle and refined. But the real centerpiece lies under the hood, where you’ll find BMW’s most powerful production V-12 ever created.

In fact, the M760Li xDrive offers with the first 12-cylinder engine with M Performance twin-turbo power adders, which is more than appropriate for BMW’s latest flagship luxury sedan. So then – this thing promises to deliver world-class style and comfort, bleeding-edge tech, and eye-widening performance. Let’s see what makes it tick.

MW M760Li xDrive-0

BMW waited for Alpina to reveal their B7 Bi-Turbo and have their moment before unveiling their own 600 hp sporty 7-Series and make them feel bad. The new 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive is the closest thing you get to a M7 – except the Alpina B7, of course – and it has a very terrible name.

Granted, it was crappy of BMW to pull thing on Alpina. But in spite of the similarities between the B7 and the BMW M760Li xDrive, these cars have totally different characters seeing as the former is a V8 while the latter features a big and lazy V12 engine mated to an 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic transmission is equipped with a Launch Control function.

BMW has worked hard on the V12 twin-turbo engine they’ve put in the M769Li, giving it 2900 psi of pressure, Double-VANOS continuously variable camshaft timing, sophisticated intercoolers, and a bespoke M sport exhaust system. As mentioned, the power is the same, 600 horsepower, but the M760 will deliver is in a calmer, more gentlemanly manner. You still get to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, but you won’t feel rushed.

BMW M760Li xDrive is brimming with technology features that make the big saloon more of a driver’s car really than a chauffeured limo. It comes with all-wheel-drive, Integral Active Steering, Active Suspension, Driving Dynamics Control and many other driver assist systems. There’s also an M aero kit for that unique look BMW M fans die for. Other highlights include a new Head-Up Display system, 3D graphics, iDrive 5.0 with touch display and Gesture Control, and BMW Ultimate Benefits for 7 concierge service.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2017 BMW Alpina B7

BMW Alpina B7-0

Much to the delight of BMW M fans who never got an M7, Alpina revealed their own high-performance 7 Series variant in form of the 2017 BMW Alpina B7 xDrive. The car is sort of an all-in-one luxury performance saloon with a lot of style and a huge turn of speed.

The heart of BMW Alpina B7 is the familiar 4.4 liter 8-cylinder bi-turbo engine used in BMW M products, tuned by Alpina to 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. It gives the car a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph which is one the par with most serious super sedans in the market. Among the highlights of the engine there are Alpina air intake system, indirect intercooler system, NGK spark plugs, and stainless steel Alpina sport exhaust system.

BMW Alpina B7 xDrive is also a work of art in terms of dynamics. A lot of work has gone into retuning the 7 Series chassis and suspension for top handling. The package features four-wheel-drive, 2-axle air suspension, Dynamic Damper Control and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview, Active Roll Stabilization  Integral Active Steering system, and Electronic Damper Control. The car also comes with 20-spoke ALPINA CLASSIC and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires as well as blue painted 4-piston fixed calipers on the front axle.

But regardless of all the technical stuff, the main reason for buying the BMW Alpina B7 is the way it looks. The car features all the lovely, yummy Alpina design features we all know and love, and they all fit the 7er really well. You get a subtle aero kit, Alpina wheels and stripes, two elliptical twin tailpipes, and exclusive Alpina colors including metallic blue and green. The same goes for the classically beautiful interior where you find Nappa leather and ceramic inserts.

In the world of performance, sport, and luxury, cars are always changing, with facelifts, redesigns, and new models debuting all the time. Today, it’s the all new, 2017 BMW Alpina B7 xDrive – the third generation Alpina based off of the BMW 7 Series. As with all Alpina models, it brings things like luxury, performance, and comfort together in one package.

The new B7 adds to the good looks of the 7 Series with more aerodynamic qualities in the front and rear and brings a new generation, 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V-8 that is sure to pack plenty of horsepower and torque. In addition to those goodies, add in the all-wheel drive system, adjustable suspension, and numerous driving modes, and you have luxurious performance at its finest. That’s what is so great about Alpina. It takes all the good from standard BMW models, and in turn, makes the car that much better. Who can really argue with that?

The new Alpina B7 xDrive is scheduled to hit dealerships in September of this year, but BMW of North America has already released detailed information and a plethora of pictures to go along with it. So, now that the beans have been spilled, let’s dive in and take a look at the new Alpina xDrive.

Updated 03/22/2016: BMW announced that the all-new Alpina B7 xDrive will be making its North American debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show and will arrive in U.S. showrooms in September 2016. Prices will be announced at a later date.

Deep Black BMW 7 Series-0

It is a known fact among car people that BMW 7 Series has a reputation for being the car of choice for successful drug dealers. Don’t know where this started and who first associated the car with the drug business (could be Jeremy Clarkson), but here we are. Now Impressive Wrap has come up with a wrap for this car that will reinforce that notion.

The Matte Deep Black BMW 7 Series iW has prepared for their customer here looks absolutely manacling, like it’s about to break your legs if you don’t come up with the money for that bag of H you bought from it yesterday. Not only have they wrapped the body, they also finished the wheels in sating black and added blacked-out detailing such as front grille and exterior accents.

Now, the deep black color iW has introduced here on this BMW 7 Series could very well become the new trend replacing the regular matte black as the most popular color for wrapping a car. It looks more luxurious than matte black which is frankly so overused, it is in danger of becoming seriously uncool. The deep black though, it looks refreshing, especially when mixed with gloss black.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Alpina B7 Officially Teased

alpina-b7

If you are one of those who people who are at BMW for not making an M7, you can now rest a tad easier as they are going to soon unveil a car that is practically an M7, but is called the new Alpina B7. They have released a teaser video introducing the forthcoming arrival.

As is often the case with these teaser, details are very scarce. But those with a trained eye for Alpina products will be quick to spot the chunky front spoiler lip, distinctive LED lights, and other aero parts exclusive to these cars. We can’t say for sure Alpina B7 will be a looker, but it will certainly look incredibly cool. All Alpinas do.

As for the powertrain, again, official details are not available at this moment. But it doesn’t take a genius to tell Alpina B7 will get a tuned version of BMW’s 4.4 liter bi-turbo V8 engine. They are not going to put a straight-six in this huge car, and a V12 is also out of the question on account of it not making much sense in a sports sedan. If we were to has it a guess what kind of horsepower that engine will produce in the B7, we’d say about the same as an M5, which is 560 hp.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 7 Series Will Add Remote Parking Feature In U.S.

BMW has scored a huge victory of sorts after the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) ruled to allow the automaker’s Park Assistant Plus feature to be included in the 2016 BMW 7 Series. The new exemption from the NHTSA clears the way for BMW to begin offering the feature in the U.S. market. A BMW spokesman confirmed to Automobilemag that the features will be made available in the US even though a clear timetable has yet to be established.

The Park Assistant Plus system is a remote driving feature in the 7 Series that essentially allows owners to drive the cars in and out of a parking spot using only the touchscreen key fobs. The automaker didn’t offer the feature in the U.S. market because of a federal law – FMVSS 114 – that requires all U.S. market cars to have a shift-interlock function, meaning a car’s brake pedal must be depressed before the transmission can be shifted out of Park. Knowing that the brake pedals in the 7 Series are not depressed when the system is activated, BMW didn’t even bother to include the feature among U.S.-bound models of the 7 Series.

The German automaker did do its due diligence and petitioned the NHTSA for an exemption to the rule. To its surprise, the government agency acquiesced to the petition, saying that the wording in the rule was vague enough to be subject to different interpretations. The rule, according to the NHTSA, meant to say that the brakes had to be “applied” before the transmission can be shifted out of Park. Since BMW’s computers automatically apply the brakes before shifting out of Park, the NHTSA deemed the Park Assistant Plus feature legal to be used in the U.S.
