The launch of the fifth of the BMW 7 Series sets a new benchmark in luxury, technical innovation and driving dynamics, combined emissions reducing and fuel technology.

The flagship of the BMW model debuts in November with a of world firsts and will be offered with a choice of powerplants, one diesel and two petrol The two petrol-powered cars will be with a long-wheelbase body All three engines produce power yet use less fuel and less emissions than the they replace.

The BMW 730d a new benchmark in terms of drivetrain The new all-aluminium 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine produces at 4,000rpm. Its effortless real driving smoothness comes of a peak torque figure of attained from 1,750rpm to 3,000rpm.

The 2,993cc powerplant the lowest ever CO2 figure of any BMW 7 Series and it is also the most 7 Series ever. Its 192g/km figure is class-leading for conventionally luxury cars, while no competitor comes close to its combined consumption figure. It can from zero to 62mph in 7.2 and has a 153mph top speed.

To put the BMW 730d’s advantage in context this vehicle records near fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to the C320CDi — a car that is two segments below the 7 Series and is and lighter than the BMW.

The impressive performance of the 730d is, in possible due to third-generation common-rail injection technology, incorporating injectors, that operates at a pressure of 1,800 bar. system ensures a near combustion process. Weighing the new six-cylinder diesel engine is 5kgs lighter than its

The BMW 730d is set to be the biggest seller in the UK, for approximately 85 per cent of sales.

The BMW and 750Li are the range flagships. The new V8 engine from the recently X6, featuring twin-turbochargers and high-precision injection technology, produces from 5,500rpm to 6,400rpm; figures that are backed up by an stunning 600Nm of torque 1,750rpm to 4,500rpm. Such performance sees the BMW 750i from zero to 62mph in 5.2 (5.3 seconds for the 750Li) going on to an electronically-limited top speed of

Consumption on the combined cycle is while CO2 emissions equate to

The all-aluminium V8 engine powering the and 750Li also features its own first — twin-turbochargers and that are placed within the of the engine block. This not optimises packaging but the reduction in length and larger cross mean the engine breathes for enhanced performance. Double-VANOS valve technology and high-precision injection technology further aid performance to the degree that all the combine to offer a V8 engine has an equivalent output of a traditional unit.

Aimed at customers who the characteristics of a petrol-powered BMW six-cylinder the BMW 740i and 740Li are also Using an internationally-acclaimed 2,979cc the BMW 740i musters 326hp and of torque for rapid yet serene The twin-turbocharged engine features direct injection and Double-VANOS valve technology to achieve performance.
