BMW is rumoured to be working on new 745e model and X5 xDrive45e hybrid

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.

Check out this BMW 7 Series Individual Black Ice Edition exclusive to Russia

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.

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.

2018 BMW Individual M760Li inspired by Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht will appear at Frankfurt

This BMW M760Li might be the car you are looking for if you are into yachts and sailing. As you know, the BMW 7-Series is the company’s range topping model, but now, it has partnered with Nautor’s Swan (which is known for their luxury sailing yachts). This special edition 760Li that comes with unique features was developed to honor 25 years of BMW Individual’s history.

To make the already luxurious model even more upscale, the company had to give it more upgrades. This includes unique brake calipers that have been finished in the same colour as the car, while wearing the exclusive Nautor’s Swan logo that only the exclusive model gets. The car also has the same logo affixed on the rear end. These are just some elements that you get on the outside, and most of the new luxury add-ons can be found in the cabin.

Details that will remind you of a yacht include teak wood paneling with joints filled precisely with a layer of rubber. This rubber helps the wood expand and contract when the climate changes, just like what you would find in a luxury sailing yacht. The trunk floor also gets carbon bonded wood components, matched with an Alcantara Smoke White finish.

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.

BMW will be releasing a limited edition 7 Series in the same way that the 3 Series and 5 Series models got their own anniversary editions from the previous years. The BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre, which is limited to only 200 examples, will be manufactured at BMW’s Dingolfing plant in Germany. Interestingly, this is also where the 7 Series was born and has been produced since 1977.

In line with the celebration of its 40th year, BMW is offering two special paint variants exclusively available from its very own Individual catalogue. Customers can choose between the Petrol Mica metallic (7 Series’ original body color) and the Frozen Silver metallic body paint. Its array of enhancements will include the brand’s high gloss Shadow Line trim, a new set of BMW Individual light V-spoke alloy wheels, as well as BMW’s M Aerodynamics Package. All limited-run 7 Series 40 Jahre also come with specially marked B-pillar coverings and door pillars to underline the segment’s 40 years of existence.

BMW’s Individual package is prominent as well inside the cabin such as the brand’s soft premium leather upholstery. The choices available are either in Smoke White/Black or Smoke White/Cohiba two color combinations. Any color scheme selected comes with a pair of limited edition comfort cushions in Smoke White which includes floor mats and Alcantara headliner of the same color. Depending on the choice of upholstery combination, the floor mat’s edging can be had either in brown or black while the accents can be availed either in Piano black lacquer or Smoke brown woodgrain.

BMW saw a potential oil leak on the new M760Li, prompting them to recall the said vehicle last April. Today, a little over two months after issuing the first recall, BMW is once again recalling the M760Li for the same reason. While 97 examples have been initially affected, the latest recall notice covers a total of 206 vehicles as issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (or NHTSA).

One of the main reasons is the oil leaking from the oil cooler possibly going onto the front brakes, compromising the vehicle’s braking efficiency. The 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive sedan, which packs a total output of 592hp(600PS) and 590lb ft (800Nm) of torque, can go for a zero-to-62 mph sprint in only 3.9 seconds. Even if no injuries or accidents have been reported, recalling the affected vehicles is important to let them check and replace the engine oil cooler line or whatever is necessary to prevent any serious problems.

According to BMW, they will be working on the vehicles beginning August 7 and that the procedure will be free of charge and should not take more than two hours to complete. In spite of this, owners should wait to be contacted first by the dealership before bringing in their cars for a check-up.

Bad news for BMW, their new flagship sedan, the 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive is already being recalled not so long after its release. Why so soon, you ask? Well, an oil line in the engine compartment is leaking oil.

The worst part though is that it leaks down to the front brakes, which is highly dangerous for the car and the driver since this could affect stopping power. Especially since it packs a 6.6 liter twin-turbo V12 engine, that yields up to 601 horsepower and 590 pound feet of torque. The four-wheel drive comes with an eight speed automatic and can sprint to 60 miles per hour from zero in just 3.6 seconds. Imagine having to stop a car that fast with brakes that don’t work well due to an oil leak.

The premium sedan has a top speed of 155 miles per hour, and if customers got the M Driver’s Package, it can be stretched up to 189 miles per hour. M760Li, like the standard 7-series, has an “Executive Drive Pro” suite as well. With Dynamic Damper Contolled air springs and Dynamic Drive that reduce roll and increase comfort while driving.

There is no denying that the new BMW M760Li xDrive really sits at the acme of the German premium carmaker’s 7-Series family. Along with its powerful and confident performance -- as powered by a new M Performance TwinPower Turbo V12 petrol engine -- the new BMW M760Li xDrive also boasts of being able to deliver segment-leading driving dynamics as well as ride comfort.

As an M Performance 7-Series, the BMW M760Li xDrive is about dynamics, especially concerning the amount of power emanating from its V12 engine. But aside from the fact the BMW M760Li xDrive is a true performer sitting on top of the 7-Series range, it also offers selections from BMW Individual. BMW Individual allows owners and would-be-owners to choose from an array of exterior and interior elements that aren’t usually offered. This means that customers could further evolve their BMW M760Li xDrive from something that is already special into a unit that is even more exclusive.

For instance, this particular model is wrapped in Frozen Dark Brown metallic exterior finish from BMW Individual, as accentuated by 20-inch BMW Individual Light alloy V-Spoke wheels with performance run-flat tires. Of course, there are more beautiful exterior finishes from BMW Individual the client could choose from. These include Moonstone Metallic finish, Almandine Brown Metallic color, Azurite Black Metallic and Ruby Black Metallic exterior finishes.

Oh please… We know for a fact that Tupac Amaru Shakur is perhaps one of the greatest rappers in our history. No wonder the vehicle that drove him to death may well be worth a fortune. But seriously, does anyone want to relive such an unfortunate event?

The horrible story happened right after the rapper and Death Row Records co-founder watched Mike Tyson and Bruce Sheldon’s boxing match. Back in the evening of September 7, 1996, Tupac and Suge Knight were on board the black BMW 7 Series (pictured here) until a white Cadillac pulled over from behind and shot Tupac several times at close range. The bullets entered the chest twice while another one got into his arm and another into his thigh. Suge Knight sustained injuries while Tupac died at the Las Vegas hospital six days after the incident took place at age 25.

Whatever happened to the BMW he rode in after the shooting is another story to be told. That same fateful night, the Las Vegas Police Department has impounded the vehicle as part of the standard operating procedure. Apparently after several years or so, the black BMW 750iL has had different owners. And although the previous owners had restored the vehicle, the dents caused by the bullets are still quite visible inside the door panels.

When the latest Lexus LS flagship sedan was unveiled at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, it managed to turn several heads and capture the attention of the world. With its stunning looks and premium specs, the new Lexus LS 500 is expected to revolutionize anew the luxury vehicle sector, just like what the first LS managed to do decades ago.

But how would the new Lexus LS sedan stack up against comparably sized Germany rivals in the luxury segment, like the BMW 740i, Mercedes-Benz S550 and the Audi A8 L 3.0T?

So, our verdict? While the Lexus LS 500 seems to be a good proposition, its price has yet to be announced and its performance is still as good as printed in a paper. For now, the LS 500 wins, until we could really try being behind the wheels of all of these premium sedans.

Some car enthusiasts may simply opt for BMW’s standard list of rim options while others go for something bolder. By bolder, we mean those rims that you’d typically find on big SUVs and low-slung sports coupes. As an example, consider this BMW 7-Series (G11) fitted with an over-the-top Quattresimo set of wheels.

As you can see on this black BMW, it has Forgiato’s 22-inch forged aluminum rims in gold finish. This particular design is from the Quattresimo collection, which is made of aircraft grade materials and can be availed in various forging options such as the convex, step lip or concave among many others.

In case you’re wondering, Forgiato’s team hails from Los Angeles California. It is also where they continue to produce and manufacture their excellent products. Still, the Italian sounding name is just as tasty as their wide array of colours and designs.

It costs a fortune to buy a premium car from luxury brands like BMW. It costs even a bigger fortune to purchase its performance version. Let us introduce BMW’s first-ever 7 Series M Performance model, the BMW M760i xDrive. Good news for potential buyers in the United States, the fired-up version of the BMW 7 Series is coming to town.

As promised, BMW divulged how much the all-new BMW M760i xDrive would cost as the launch date of the car approaches. It is set to arrive in early 2017. Buyers would have to pay as low as $153,800, excluding destination and handling charges. But what can customers get from the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive?

Well, the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive is powered by an M Performance TwinPower Turbo 6.6-liter V12 gasoline engine that develops up to 601 hp at 5,500 rpm and up to 590 lb-ft of torque available at 1,500 rpm.

Right when Halloween costume parties have died down, there is this one car that doesn’t care about being late and is up for a good show. A dealership in Abu Dhabi dresses up the new 2017 BMW Alpina B7 in a shade of green reminiscent of Kermit the Frog. The Java Green body paint may come as an unusual choice, but a few car owners are bold enough.

BMW’s Individual catalogue offers a wide choice of special paints for those who dare to be different. That certainly didn’t stop BMW Abu Dhabi’s client to go for what he really likes. And by that, he had chosen the Java Green Metallic for his new Alpina B7. Never mind if the BMW 7 Series looks better in grey, blue or black. Besides, BMW Abu Dhabi has used the same Java Green in other special orders. This isn’t the first time that the striking green color has appeared in their showroom. Eccentric car buyers always get what they want.

Aside from wearing the flamboyant “costume”, the car on display also comes with special wooden interior trims. The wooden finish along the centre console, door panels and dashboard make it more elegant on the inside than it is from the outside.

With the new BMW 7 Series, the German premium carmaker is intending to offer more than the ordinary in terms of luxury, comfort and technology. After all, building the best vehicle has been BMW’s main motivation for success. On the other hand, BMW Individual Manufactory has been celebrated for over two decades for its ability to customize the best vehicles according to the personal taste and preferences of owners. Thus, the BMW Individual Manufactory further developed the capabilities of the new BMW 7 Series, the BMW 750Li in particular.

With the BMW 750Li as base, BMW Individual Manufactory is demonstrating its extraordinary capabilities by developing two highly exclusive edition models: the “Solitaire Edition” and the “Master Class Edition.” These editions are really very exclusive, as BMW Individual Manufactory is only building six examples of the Solitaire Edition and only one unit of the Master Class Edition.

Frank van Meel, chief executive of BMW M GmbH, remarked that the BMW Individual Manufactory is driven by its aspiration to deliver optimal customer orientation and ensure that the wishes of its customers come true.

BMW is presenting at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show its new BMW 7 Series plug-in hybrid luxury sedans – the new BMW 740e iPerformance, BMW 740Le iPerformance and BMW 740Le xDrive iPerformance. 

Fascinatingly, drivers are given the ability to configure how the plug-in hybrid drive system operates – through the so-called eDrive button on the center console. Drivers can choose between two drive modes: AUTO eDRIVE that works using the hybrid capability of the vehicle, and MAX eDRIVE that lets the car operate on pure-electric mode.

In the AUTO eDRIVE, intelligent energy management guarantees a harmonious teamwork between the combustion engine and the electric motor work to ensure maximum efficiency and optimized performance. However, when the vehicle is cruising at low and moderate speeds, the AUTO eDRIVE mode would shift to all-electric operation to benefit from locally emission-free mobility. Once the vehicle reaches speeds of around 80 km/h (50 mph) or operates under heavy throttle, the combustion engine will kick in.
