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. This V12 engine allows the M760i xDrive to sprint from zero to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds) and reach a limited top speed of 155 mph. This powerplant is complemented by an M sport exhaust system that allows the delivery of an audio track that further accentuates the dynamic character of the BMW M760i xDrive.

Power from the M Performance 6.6-liter V12 engine is sent to all wheels through an eight-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic transmission equipped with a Launch Control function to enable optimum acceleration on demand. Its steering wheel comes with gearshift paddles. The car is provided with the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system that could distribute torque fully variable between the front and rear axle.

The 2017 BMW M760i xDrive features a Carbon Core structure for the passenger cell, thereby resulting to a low center of gravity as well as higher degrees of agility and dynamic handling. BMW’s 7 Series M Performance model rides on, as standard, newly designed double-spoke 760M 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in a Cerium Grey metallic matt finish and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Ride comfort is delivered by innovative Active Comfort Drive with Preview suspension system that includes updated version of the Dynamic Drive system.

Moreover, the new BMW M760i xDrive is equipped as standard with Integral Active Steering that -- depending on the specific driving situation – could reduce steering effort while increasing maneuverability in urban traffic as well as agility and directional stability during high-speed driving. Drivers are assured that the driving mode best suited to the situation is automatically selected thanks to the Driving Dynamics Control switch with Adaptive mode. Of course, the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive is laden with an array of innovative driver assistance systems and M Aerodynamic Package.

When compared to the Alpina B7 xDrive, which has a starting price of $137,000, the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive is slower in the sprint (3.9 seconds vs. 3.6 seconds) and at their top speeds (189 mph with optional M Driver’s Package vs. 193 mph). However, however, while the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive seems to be slower and more expensive than the Alpina B7 xDrive, it preaches the prestige and status that come with the brand and the V12 engine inside it.
