The BMW TwinPower Turbo engines in the BMW 7 Series.

Overwhelming performance and ground-breaking efficiency – every power unit for the BMW 7 Series is an expression of the dedicated development work of the BMW EfficientDynamics engineers. Their function as a team is similarly impressive. The BMW 740e/Le iPerformance Sedan represents an example of innovative, sustainable and efficient engine technologies.

M PERFORMANCE TWIN POWER TURBO 12-CYLINDER PETROL ENGINE.

A milestone in the art of automotive engineering, the 12-cylinder M Performance TwinPower Turbo in the BMW M760Li xDrive and BMW M760Li xDrive Model V12 Excellence provides sophisticated power that guarantees poised and confident driving pleasure. Its incomparably smooth running characteristics and supple power delivery turn every drive into a breathtaking experience for both the driver as well as passengers.
The V12-engine combines two turbochargers with the Double-VANOS variable camshaft control system and High-Precision Injection. The 12-cylinder provides a powerful maximum torque of 800* Nm at engine speeds of between 1,500* and 5,000* rpm as well as a maximum output of 448* kW (610* hp) at engine speeds of between 5,250* and 6,000* rpm thus propelling the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.7* seconds. This engine is incredibly fuel-efficient thanks to High-Precision Injection, while the Automatic Start/Stop function further reduces fuel consumption by automatically switching off the engine when the vehicle comes to a temporary standstill. Thanks to these innovative technologies, the engine gets by on a combined rate of 12.6* litres of fuel per 100 km with CO2 emissions of just 294* g/km, even while delivering excellent driving performance.
The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system thereby distributes drive power to the front and rear wheels smoothly and variably for maximum traction, directional stability and safety in nearly every driving situation.

The maximum speed is electronically limited for the BMW 7 Series models.

All engines meet the EU6 emissions standard. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle (93/116/EC) made up of approximately one third urban traffic and two thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Fuel consumption levels are calculated on the basis of vehicles with standard equipment. Special equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can have a significant impact on fuel consumption and driving performance levels.

The technical data specified apply to vehicles in the German market. The models illustrated may, in part, include optional equipment and accessories not fitted as standard. According to the specific requirements of other markets, alterations may occur regarding models, standard and optional equipment as described in the text and illustrations. For precise information, please contact your BMW Partner. Subject to change in design and equipment. Subject to error. Equipment specific to national markets is not represented here.

Unladen weight (EU) in kg: the figure quoted includes a 90 per cent tank filling, 68 kg for the driver and 7 kg for luggage. Unladen weight applies to vehicles with standard equipment. Optional equipment may increase this figure.

Rated output: BMW recommends the use of super unleaded 95 RON fuel. Unleaded RON 91 fuel or higher with a maximum ethanol limit of 10 per cent (E10) is also permitted. The performance and fuel consumption rates listed are based on the use of RON 98 fuel.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW 7 Series models with petrol or diesel engine:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 12.6* to 4.4
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 294* to 116

Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption for the BMW 7 Series iPerformance models:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.5 to 2.0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 56 to 45
Power consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 13.9 to 12.5
