Not trying to be mean or anything, but this “Twilight Purple” BMW 760Li isn’t exactly the world’s manliest luxury saloon. In fact, it’s a little “girlish” don’t you think?
Color choice aside, the F02 7 Series is still, technically, one of the best cars in the world and don’t let anybody tell you any different.
This particular model is rocking a lovely Opal White Merino full leather interior with BMW Individual Piano Black trim, M Sports package, Bang & Olufsen sound system and the rear-seat entertainment with the 9.2″ monitors.
Under the hood lies a mighty 6.0 liter twin-turbo V12, good for 544 PS and 750 Nm (554 lb-ft) of peak torque, which can move those 2,250 kg (4,960 lbs) from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds. When you can get that type of performance from this type of vehicle, well, it’s no wonder BMW have been hesitant to build a proper M car based on the 7 Series.
The last time we “visited” BMW Abu Dhabi, we saw this heavily customized 2015 X3 which would stand out in pretty much any driveway. Now imagine it next to the Twilight Purple 760Li and you’ve got yourself a set of very colorful premium family cars.
Still, there’s nothing wrong with people projecting their personal preferences when it comes to their own cars.
