There are no significant changes given on the BMW 7 Series or M760i in particular since the lineup received pretty exciting updates last year. The M760i comes with an all-wheel-drive xDrive system and puts out 601 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. It has a starting price of $157,800. However, the final check can be even higher if you select the optional packages and exterior paint. That being said, the 2021 BMW M760i is having a face-off in the luxury sedan segment with dominating figures such as the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, the Audi S8, and the Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo

2021 BMW M760i Engine and Performance

7.6/10

Under the hood of 2021 M760i xDrive, you will find a 6.6 Liter Twin-Turbo V12 engine which churns out a whopping 601 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. It is married to an eight-speed automatic transmission and sends power to all wheels since the xDrive system is standard in the M760i and there is no other drivetrain on offer for this trim.

The preceding arrangement allows the BMW M760i xDrive to fly from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds which ultimately let it bag the second-fastest sedan title in the segment as the fastest sedan crown already belongs to a rival from the Porsche. Other than its windy speed, the M760i xDrive gets help from the Twin-tube gas-pressure shock absorbers and Servotronic power-steering assist which makes driving more comfortable and easy.

Every opponent of the M760i gushes an enormous amount of power. However, the Panamera Turbo S from Porsche has the highest engine output among all the rivals and completes the 0-60 mph target in mere 2.9 seconds. That aside, the performance of the Audi S8 is not disappointing either as it is just 0.2 seconds slower than the M760i. Lastly, the turtle of the game is from the Maserati which might have a sluggish acceleration compared to other sedans in the segment but it has the highest top speed among all. 

How well does the BMW M760i handle?:

BMW has given double-wishbone multi-link aluminum at the front and integral-V multi-link aluminum suspensions at the rear. With the help of such an excellent arrangement, the M760i dilutes the bumps pretty well. That said, the steering wheel has the right weight and makes maneuvering easier. 

The ride quality is smooth but there is considerable body roll around the corners. The windscreen is large which offers good visibility. Since the M760i is made for performance, you will be able to experience its witty acceleration easily. However, if we compare the driving dynamics of the M760i with the Panamera Turbo S, the latter one has the edge. 

2021 BMW M760i Braking Performance:

The 2021 BMW M760i has M Sport brakes which keep it in control. It comes with a pair of 14.7 front brake rotors and 14.5 rear brake rotors. brake drying, and brake stand-by, and other features assist in braking operations. And despite being over 5000 pounds, the M760i surprisingly comes to a haul from 60 mph over a distance of 111 feet.

2021 BMW M760i Exterior

7.6/10

Simply stunning from every angle, the BMW M760i is made to demand attention wherever it passes. On the front, an aggressive chrome grille along with the Icon Adaptive LED Headlights which were updated last year makes a bold statement. Move your attention to the side, and you will not help but notice the sharp yet graceful body lines playing on the side profile. Come to the rear end, you will get to see a more horizontal rear trunk, twin tailpipes, and a rear spoiler which give the M760i its athletic look from the back. An Aerodynamic kit and 20-inch M Double-spoke wheels are also given on the M760i xDrive. Additionally, a cerium grey accent finish is observed all over the exterior which compliments the already handsome look of the BMW M760i. 

You also get a dual-pane power panoramic moonroof with wind deflector, power interior sunshade, and tilt plus sliding feature. That said, infrared windshield, LED Daytime Running Lights, power heated side mirrors, and power trunks are few default exterior features. Finally, we do agree that the standard Alpine White or Black Sapphire Metallic suits the BMW M760i xDrive but we would suggest you think about opting for the Frozen Bluestone metallic exterior paint. It will cost $5,000 extra but a breathtaking look will be bestowed on your new BMW M760i xDrive.

2021 BMW M760i Competition

BMW M760i vs Audi S8

The BMW M760i certainly has a more powerful engine than the Audi S8 but there is no marginal difference in the acceleration of both sedans. As for the fuel economy, the Audi S8 is ahead but if we look at the cargo capacity, the M760i has the lead. If we compare the weights, Audi has made the S8 heavier compared to the M760i. 

BMW M760i vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S

If the performance is the core criteria of the judgment then the Porsche Panamera Turbo S wins the competition. BMW tries to knock some sense into the Panamera by giving a bigger fuel tank and trunk to the M760i but fails to make a considerable impact as Porsche counters with the excellent driving capabilities. However, a more premium price tag and seating capacity of four might give the edge to the M760i. 

BMW M760i vs Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo

The Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo is slow on its feet against the BMW M760i but it is lighter in comparison and can store half-gallon of fuel more into the fuel tank. Externally, it is the closest competitor of the M760i in size. That said, Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo will hurt your pockets less than the BMW M760i. 

2021 BMW M760i Final Verdict

The BMW M760i xDrive might be strong in the majority of aspects but it can’t come out of the fierce battle with the rivals without getting some scratches. However, it still managed to win against them. Yes, there are some areas where competitors are ahead and fuel economy is not very impressive since the power generator is a massive 6.6 Liter Twin-Turbo V12 engine but the BMW M760i xDrive is the best all-rounder package you can get in the luxury sedan segment.
