Seen in Abu Dhabi: Stunning BMW 750Li painted in Atlantis Blue with contrasting red interior

Those of you who have been to the Middle East are probably used to seeing flashy cars. And when I say flashy cars, I don’t just mean expensive models, but I’m specifically talking about the colours painted on them and the interesting interiors they have. A handful of these cars are from BMW and their dealership in Abu Dhabi.

The newest one that made headlines would be the BMW 750Li. Though it is not a flagship model of the new 7 Series, it still offers an impressive performance. In as quick as 4.5 seconds, it is capable of hitting 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour). That comes from its V8 engine that carries out 445 horsepower and 650 Newton metres (479 pound feet) of torque. It also has a top speed of 155 miles per hour. The performance of this car is perfect for countries like the United States and Germany where speed is a big factor for choosing a car.

In this case, we are not only impressed by the 750Li’s performance, but also with its unique paint job, as it is finished in a cool Atlantis Blue that was customised by none other than BMW Individual. This is not actually the first time that we have seen this colour, as it had been applied to other BMWs in the past - like a couple of M3s and M4s. What makes it unique on a 750Li is the fact that customers usually stick to default colours like black, grey, or white in the 7 Series, and it is quite rare to see one in a bright blue shade.

Check out this Rallye Green BMW Individual M760Li displayed in Abu Dhabi

Every now and then, BMW Abu Dhabi gets quite a cool selection of customized cars, many of them tuned by BMW Individual. These are not just the nicest toys, but are also the most eye-catching ones as well, often in striking hues. The latest one that’s on display in one of their dealerships would be the M760Li (or M760i in the United States), and it has been finished in a Rallye Green paint that is part of the Individual catalog.

Apart from the stunning green paint, the BMW M760Li now has a front spoiler and an Alpina rear trunk lid spoiler has been added to complement that look. Smaller details such as satin chrome accents around the beefy front and side vents and mirror caps complete the exterior changes.

Changes do not stop on just the exterior, as the BMW’s cabin now features a fine-grain Merino leather upholstery in Opal white, contrasted by black stitching. Furthermore, it has been given extra accents in gloss black, as well as an upgraded entertainment system with dual screens in the rear. Since this model is a M760Li version, expect to see several “M” pieces inside and out to further boost the car’s appeal.

This Estoril Blue M760Li xDrive is probably the most expensive BMW out there

Would you get a brand new BMM760i / M760Li xDrive for $156,700 in the US or €171,800 in Germany? You are probably wondering why it costs so much. This is because it is far from the ordinary model. This $156,700 M760iLi xDrive is currently located on the other side of the world in Abu Dhabi, and is also probably the most expensive BMW one could get as well.

Let us get to the details one by one. From the outside, it has a distinct Estoril Blue shade from the company’s individual catalog, riding on a set of huge two-tone 21-inch M Performance lightweight alloy wheels. The side profile features a silver bar that runs from one end to another, contrasting the blue paint. It features a new trunk lid spoiler that was especially made by Alpina.

To contrast the outside livery, the M760Li comes with a bold red leather interior that stretches from the center console to the front and rear seats. Of course, it is complemented with a high-tech entertainment system too. Overall, it has been given a longer wheelbase that gives the rear passengers extra legroom - space is indeed necessary in any luxurious car, especially if you are going to shell out some extra cash.

Heavily revised 2020 BMW 7 Series looks more luxuriously dominant

It has been three and a half years since BMW unveiled the sixth generation of the BMW 7 Series. Thus, it is really about to give the 7 Series a major revision for the 2020 model year. In fact, it is only a matter of time when the sixth-gen 7 Series will be launch into the market as BMW has finally took off the veil of its revised full-size sedan.

Compared to its immediate predecessor, the 2020 BMW 7 Series seems like an all-new model in terms of looks. The most apparent exterior revision made to the new 7 Series is its significantly larger BMW kidney grille. In fact its single-piece frame has grown by around 40 percent. In the United States, the bars of the Active Kidney Grille are finished in aluminum satin.

Furthermore, the front end of the new 2020 BMW 7 Series is now two inches taller at its highest point. These revisions make the new 7 Series look more visually powerful on the road.

With all the issues going around the automotive industry, car makers have to be more mindful of their moves, especially when it comes to the development and production of cars.

Like now, European spec cars had just been given a new set of requirements, and this will mean a production shutdown for BMW’s flagship 7 Series sedan for an entire year. To be more specific, this shutdown really only affects gas powered vehicles, and diesel engine will still be produced. This is quite an odd thing considering that diesel variants have a reputation of being the more polluted engines, especially with the Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal.

The decision to shut down engines began when the new requirements of the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (also known as WLTP) were implemented. These rules began in 2017 after new forms of emissions testing has been done, and apparently, these are a better way to measure vehicle emission in real world driving.

For a BMW M3 or M4 stand out from a crowd of sports and high-performance cars, it needs to be unusually stunning and outrageously weird. Of course, it would be hard for a BMW M4 (F82) Coupe to stand out when there are hotter supercars around. For an M4 Coupe to do that, it needs more than just being red hot, it has to be radioactive green.

This is how a BMW M4 Coupe is dressed up as displayed at BMW’s showroom in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is finished in a color – called as Signal Green -- that is seemingly picked out from the color palette of the mutant character Incredible Hulk, whose leafy shade is owned to his exposure to radiation. Most of the exterior parts and sections of this special M4 Coupe is wrapped in Signal, with the rest finished in black. From the front bumper and its muscular bonnet, through its side panels and pillars, to its rear decklid and rear fascia, this M4 Coupe is finished in Signal Green.

Aside from its radioactive finish, this Signal Green BMW M4 Coupe is provided with a number of optional elements derived from the parts and accessory catalogue of M Performance. These optional elements include the M Performance kit with a number of components made from carbon fiber, yellow brake calipers as seen through the wheels, as well as an Akrapovic exhaust system.

If you have driven, or at least heard of the BMW M550i’s performance specs, you will definitely be blown away, as it can hit the 60 miles per hour sprint in under four seconds, with its 4.4 liter, twin turbo V8 engine. This engine lets the vehicle carry out 456 horsepower and 480 pound feet of torque of tap, which also makes it half a second quicker than the previous M5 that is actually equipped with the same engine.

Now, we already know that the new M5 is the perfect car for people who enjoy driving crazy powerful cars, and with all its power, it barely needs any upgrade. But looking at this machine sometimes makes you think of what more can it give.

Well, if you happen to be in the area, you might want to head out to the world’s largest BMW dealership located in the Persian Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi. Because that is where you will find this brand-new M550i xDrive.

This BMW 7 Series in the 730Li spec features a 2.0 liter four cylinder power unit. It also gets a longer wheelbase and that means that it is heavier and will tax its engine even more. This particular model we are talking about today can be found in the BMW Abu Dhabi Motors dealership and is finished in a beautiful Ruby Black Metallic finish.

Exterior upgrades that come with it include a 3D Design front spoiler, an M Performance trunk lid spoiler, and an M Performance kidney grille. And we are quite sure you noticed the new set of wheels it sits on as they measure 21 inches in diameter, and have been finished in an orbit grey shade.

As you move into the car’s interior, there are clear signs that this had been made by the automaker’s BMW Individual division. Red leather covers the seats, the door panels and part of the center console and the bottom part of the dashboard.

What could be the weirdest thing you could dress your car in? Well, we have seen models wrapped with Louis Vuitton x Supreme sticker, and there was one with French fry livery from last year or so. But we’re willing to bet there is no other car design that will astound you more -- the smiling poop emoji. Yes, you got that right, someone’s BMW 7 Series is wrapped with the smiling poop emoji that we use when chatting to express dissatisfaction. Who would have ever thought it would one day be used to dress a car up?

This was the doing of X Carwrapping, as it recently dressed this BMW 740E in a sticker that is coloured mostly in dark brown poop emojis. We’re thinking that this was done to demand the attention of a generation whose lives are centered on social media and the internet. When we first saw these images, we didn’t know how to react. However, there was a consensus that it was disturbing at the very least.

Now, you are probably wondering who asked for this commission. Well, it was a popular rapper born in Poland named Mr. Polska. We’re not surprised, who other than a rapper would drive a BMW 7 series covered in poop emojis in public.

If you are looking for an awesome car, look no further than the BMW M4. But if you want something more exclusive than that, then you can opt for the Alpina-tuned 4 Series as this will definitely turn heads wherever you go.

Alpina has prepared a kit that isn’t just about the car’s looks as its performance will also be given a boost albeit, not by much. It gets a raise of 9 PS (9 horsepower) and 56 Newton metres (41 pound feet) of torque. The Alpina B4 S Bi Turbo carries out a little more power than the stock M4, thanks to its straight-six 3.0 liter engine. That may not sound a lot, but overall, that totals to an impressive number of 440 PS (434 HP) and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque in a wide speed range from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm.

For those of you who are interested in this Alpina tuned 4 Series, the white model is on display at BMW Abu Dhabi dealership. The special body kit comes with a custom front splitter, side skirts, and boot lid spoiler. It also has multi-spoke alloys and blue calipers, plus decals from the tuner.

The new BMW 740e iPerformance certainly has an edge with the luxury it offers as well as the fuel efficiency it gives. However, those who are already thinking of buying one may want to wait a bit as the 2019 model year of the sedan comes with a handful of major upgrades.

According to BMW Blog, their sources told them that the upcoming 740e iPerformance will have a 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, together with batteries with a higher energy density and a new electric motor. Though there haven’t been any valid specifications yet, reports say that the model will produce around 390 horsepower (290 kilowatts), while also having a longer electric-only range.

Similar to the 530 iPerformance, the updated model will likely have a wireless charging system. Its name could also be changed to 745e iPerformance.

Japanese aftermarket tuner Wald International’s latest project in the Black Bison line of body kits focuses on the BMW 7 Series. In these images, we see the large German sedan with the new pieces of Wald on both the front and the rear end. Having said that, the model will surely turn a lot of heads with these unusual revisions.

Apart from the aforementioned front and rear bumpers that are part of the Black Bison kit, there are also side sills, as well as new wheels and an aftermarket exhaust that can be added to the BMW 7 Series.

Up front, the most noticeable feature would be the L-shaped intakes on both sides, with a vertical array of LEDs as opposed to the horizontal ones on the stock G12. Both corners also get small, square-shaped inlets at each side, as well as a rectangular opening with horizontal slats in the center. A slim black lip also underlines the vehicle’s front bumpers.

The Middle East is home to a number of one-off vehicles, as well as specially modified luxury cars. Almost every month, we hear about new cars being unveiled or brought into the country, and a lot of them are BMWs.

Now, one of the latest models that BMW Abu Dhabi Motors has on display is the mind blowing range-topping 7 Series that’s currently on sale. The last model we saw before this was the impressive M760Li xDrive finished in Imola Red, which we saw a few weeks ago. Now, BMW’s Long Beach Blue M760Li xDrive is just as striking as the last model we saw.

This is definitely not the first time we have seen this hue on a car. In fact, it has been used on different models like the M2 pocket rocket. You might also agree if I say that this colour looks a bit too wild on the large sedan. Thanks to the black carbon fiber accents all throughout the car, from the mirror caps to the 21-inch multi-spoke 629 design wheels, the whole package now looks so much better. But that’s not all that this car has to boast about. The car also has a 3D Design Body kit that adds some nice details here and there. Lastly, it has got a trunk lid spoiler from the M Performance.

Customers who think the BMW 4 Series Coupe is rather ordinary are in for a treat especially with what BMW Individual and Alpina have in store. The best example is presently being displayed at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, a dealer that looks to be getting the best toys to play around with.

Even with one look, the use of Rallye Green paint on the Alpina B4 S makes the body even more aggressive. Combined with the upgrades implemented by those at Buchloe, it is clear that this is not your standard 4 Series Coupe.

On the inside for example, BMW Individual made sure that the interior of the B4 S would be different from the usual 4 Series Coupe. The instrument cluster has blue dials with the steering wheel showing green stitching. This color theme is in fact the same as that on the exterior. While the usual 4 Series Coupe has a left air vent on its center console, the B4 S instead has an extra display. On the lower region of the console is a special plaque that proves this is not the usual car.

It was in February 2016 when we first saw the actual BMW 740e, and rumours quickly spread that it will have a short life cycle. But sources now say that the plug-in hybrid fullsize sedan will retire next year to give way to a new 745e. In fact, this model was just at the 2017 SEMA Show to display a wide range of M Performance parts. Hopefully, there will be a more powerful model and there will be an electric car with more range. However, so far there has been no confirmation.

Currently, the outgoing 740e comes with a turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower. It is then paired with an electric motor with another 111 horsepower. Overall, the electrified 7 Series can carry out a total of 322 horsepower and 369 pound-feet (500 Newton metres) of torque. When combined with the engine, the 740e develops a peak torque at 1,250 rpm. In only 5.1 seconds, the 740e can accelerate to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) before hitting its maximum speed of 130 miles per hour (209 kilometers per hour).

While we don’t expect dramatic changes, we’re excited to see what the new 745e has to offer. But what we would really like to improve is the current electric range of just 14 miles provided by the 9.2 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery pack that is recharged via a standard J1772 3.7 kW plug. We anticipate that extending the range will really drum up sales for the series.

BMW is currently developing another M2 that will either wear the GTS or the CSL index, after its latest facelift just a couple of months ago. Today, the M2 is still a crowd favourite, being a model with the perfect balance between aggressive design, performance and price. One question a lot of people would ask today is whether this could be made even better.

It definitely can be improved. And check out this photo to see how the coupe can be made to look even more handsome with just some cosmetic tweaks. Firstly, this M2 Coupe had been given a new carbon fiber exterior aerodynamic pack that was finished in a Long Beach Blue colour, which is probably the most eye catching colour of the coupe. This exterior kit is currently available at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors.

At first look, you may not notice it, but this particular M2 actually has carbon fiber front bumper lip spoiler, a massive fixed rear wing, a rear diffuser, and 3D Design side skirts - all in the same lightweight material. The new exhaust system has more prominent tips as well.

For many, a dream car shouldn’t be just spacious and luxurious, but also fast and furious. The BMW M3 might be just this kind of dream car, but an M version of the 4-Series Gran Coupe would still be a better choice. But to no avail, an M4 Gran Coupe isn't happening yet, even after the 4 Series just recently received a Life Cycle Impulse (mid-cycle update).

BMW Abu Dhabi – which describes itself as an exclusive importer for BMW, MINI and BMW ALPINA in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, United Arab Emirates – has come up with a modified version of a 4-Series Gran Coupe that could be the closest thing we could get to an M4 Gran Coupe. BMW Abu Dhabi has been known for its knack in creating leveled-up versions of a typical BMW vehicle, and this latest custom-build isn't an exception.

BMW Abu Dhabi started off with a regular BMW 440i Gran Coupe. Wrapped in elegant yet sporty Snapper Rocks Blue paint finish, this 440i Gran Coupe is hugged by athletic body kit from M Performance – from its bottom to the top. Its black kidney grilles features M-colored vertical stripes on the front while its rear end features M Performance trunk lid spoiler, as complemented by an Akrapovic exhaust system with an Akrapovic Sport downpipe. Furthermore, this custom-built BMW 440i Gran Coupe rides on 20-inch M Performance wheels. Its driver is treated to an M Performance steering wheel; except for this, the interior of this new 440i Gran Coupe remains the same when it was delivered from the factory.

The BMW 7 Series is already highly sought after but nonetheless, the German marque is giving it a more exclusive variant for the Russian market, and they are calling it the 7 Series Individual Edition Black Ice. It’s only available on orders. The special edition features a ton of unique features inside and out, making it truly stand out from the rest.

The Black Ice name was derived from the model’s Frosty Black metallic finish. And it is not just your typical black paint. It has got a unique painting technology that gives it transformative properties. This is because the base metallic paint is coated with a special matte varnish. So under the right lighting, its 7 Series’ silhouette is amplified with its unique shine.

Apart from the distinct paint job, the BMW 7 Series was built with an aerodynamic M Sport package. This package has a double grille design, gloss black door handles, and a gloss black boot lid. To complete the exterior design, the Black Ice 7 Series now sits on a set of 20-inch BMW Individual V-spoke 649s with different sized tires, and of course, a body kit by M Sport. Other features that are already included on the standard edition are laser headlamps, parking assist with a remote control module, a 360-degree vision system, and an Executive Drive Pro package with roadway scanning.

The current BMW 7 Series made its debut two years ago at the BMW headquarters in Munich, before it made its way to the International Auto Show in Germany weeks after. It was the first 7 Series that was introduced as a plug-in hybrid variant.

However, this one-off M760Li was customized by BMW Individual customization program. It wears an Austin Yellow paint job that looks good on the sedan, while riding on a set of 21-inch multi-spoke wheels. This is the only 7 Series that has been painted in this unique shade. This colour is typically reserved for an M4 or an M3, and you can find this unit showcased in BMW Abu Dhabi.

The 7 Series’ interior is then finished in creme-coloured leather, which stretches from the seats, to the dash, and to the center console. To bring some flair to it, BMW Individual also added wood paneling and black leather on the steering wheel and on the dash. When looking at it, the model’s exterior paint and interior colours seem to be lacking some contrast. We think that a black interior would make a better contrast with the yellow paint.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are among a small number of places where flashy cars are a common sight. You will need something really unique if you would like to stand out from the crowd. One fine example is this Speed Yellow BMW M4 Convertible that has been tuned by AC Schnitzer. Abu Dhabi and Al Ain get their vehicles from Abu Dhabi Motors, the official importer of BMW, Alpina and AC Schnitzer vehicles.

This AC Schnitzer M4 is a beauty. No one will disagree with that statement even after seeing treatments from other tuners like Liberty Walk. The front splitter, drive planes, mirror caps and rear accents are made with carbon fiber bits.

The upgrades are so smooth that they look as if they have been equipped from the factory. This M4 was also given the dark finished exhaust tips that look more than amazing. But if there’s one thing that a lot of people are unsure about when it comes to styling is the AC Schnitzer AC1 wheels with thin spokes, as they don’t seem to go too well with the rest of the body.
