Pow­er­ful en­gines

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - World Of Luxury -

For su­pe­rior per­for­mance and to out­gun “nor­mal cars” on the road, lux­ury cars are fit­ted with smooth-run­ning and big, beefy en­gines.

Check out the 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive which gives a de­but to the new M Per­for­mance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylin­der petrol en­gine.

Con­cealed un­der a cover bear­ing “M Per­for­mance” let­ter­ing, the mon­strous 6.6-litre V12 de­vel­ops out­put of 610hp at 5,500rpm and peak torque of 800Nm at 1,500rpm.

Power trans­fer is via the state-ofthe-art eight-speed Step­tronic Sport trans­mis­sion as stan­dard.

On sec­tions of Ger­many’s au­to­bahn with no speed limit, this means the M760Li xDrive can hit an elec­tron­i­cally lim­ited top speed of 250kph.

If the op­tional M Driver’s Pack­age is spec­i­fied, the speed lim­iter doesn’t cut in un­til 305kph.

Be­ing pow­er­ful also means that en­gines are never stressed out and can de­liver vi­bra­tion-free per­for­mance and ef­fort­less waft­ing.
