Shivendra Garg's image

Shivendra Garg Content writer Updated on: December 4, 2019


The 2020 BMW M760i is BMW’s flagship luxury sedan, but with the qualities of a true sportscar in the making. As a flagship luxury sedan, it boasts an expansive cabin lined with high-quality upholstery and trim. But, in order to justify itself as a sportscar, it gets a hulking twin-power mono-scroll turbo V12 alongside BMW’s M name.

Expert Review


The twin-turbo V12 is mated to BMW’s STEPTRONIC eight-speed automatic transmission that works its signature xDrive unit. So there’s no doubt whatsoever that though this sedan might end-up as a chauffeur-driven vehicle, it is going to reward whoever gets to sit behind its Servotronic power-steering. Speaking of power, at 601 hp this Bimmer is closer to the M8 than it is to the 750i.

The 2020 BMW M760i is undeniably the best of both worlds. To make things better, the designers at BMW gave the M760i all new design on the inside and out. The refreshed BMW M760i can be yours for a starting price of $157,700. Also as a luxury sedan it has been priced competently to rank up against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 and Jaguar XE SV Project 8.

2020 BMW M760i Features

The polarizing M760i sedan is the bad boy of BMW’s 7 Series. This suited up BMW is an all-exclusive variant that comes standard with BMW’s signature xDrive or intelligent all-wheel drive unit. Powering all the wheels of this exclusive sedan is an equally exclusive V12 engine. The 6.6-liter twin-power turbo V12 makes 601 hp and 627 lb.-ft. torque.

All that power from the engine travels to the four corners of this Bimmer via an eight-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission, also a stand-alone feature on this stand-alone 7 Series. The lack of a manual unit is somewhat made up for by gearshift paddle switches on the steering wheel.

We recommend:

The 2020 BMW M760i looks to maximize the peace of mind of the driver as well as other occupants. For the best driving experience, couple this sedan with the Driving Assistant Professional package or the Rear Executive Lounge Seating Package. While the former adds advanced features like Active Cruise Control and partially-automated driving, the latter features power rear seats and footrest.

2020 BMW M760i Engine

The 2020 BMW M760i might appear to be dressed to the nines, but deep down it is a fire breathing monster. Its huge grille serves as the doorway to what lies under its hood. Powering the otherwise holy looking M760i is a devilish twin-power turbo V12. Furthermore, the V12 combines two mono-scroll turbochargers for improved precision. As a result, this stretched out sportscar makes 601 hp and 627 lb.-ft. torque.

All that power is translated to all the wheels of the 2020 BMW M760i sedan through BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system commonly known as xDrive. An eight-speed automatic STEPTRONIC transmission ensures smooth transition of power from the engine to the wheels. All mechanical features, the engine, transmission and drivetrain, are standard on the 2020 BMW M760i.

The 2020 BMW M760i gets the biggest most powerful engine in this lineup of luxuru, full-size sedans.

How fast is the BMW M760i?

The M760i is the most powerful 7 Series, though not as much as the Alpina B7. It’s burly twin-turbo V12 makes 601 hp and 627 lb.ft. torque, and the intelligent all-wheel drive unit favors the rear wheels of this Bimmer at most times.

So as soon as you go down on the throttle, the weight of this 7 Series shifts to the back. You see the M760i’s nose rise up when this Bimmer charges ahead as if it were skiing down a snowy mountain.

The peak low-end torque, abundant power throughout the powerband and seamless shifts from the eight-speed automatic, make the 2020 BMW M760i sedan closer to a much smaller sportscar that doesn’t offer half as much practicality.

The 2020 BMW M760i biggest, most powerful engine suffers a bit because of its weight. The lightweight Jaguar XE SV Project is the quickest of the lot.

What about the braking performance of the BMW M760i?

Any car that accelerates as quickly and weighs as much as the M760i has got to have brakes to boot, and this Bimmer does not disappoint. All four wheels of the 2020 M760i get ventilated discs with anti-locking function. The composite front rotors do a magnificent job of shedding this sedan’s speed.

But going down on the brakes does reveal how heavy the M760i actually is. There is a noticeable amount of nose dive as the weight of this 7 Series sedan is transferred ahead with the push of the pedal. The brakes though discerning, can cause some discomfort for the driver and other occupants.

Besides being the quickest to accelerate, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is also the quickest to come to a halt.

What about its driving dynamics?

Driving the 2020 BMW M760i is an extremely rewarding experience. This comfortable cruiser sedan has the makings of a true sportscar. The Servotronic power steering is very well weighted, and features BMW’s Integral Active Steering system that alters steering ratio according to the choice of driving mode. Speaking of modes, the 2020 BMW M760i gets more than a handful of those.

The M760i features BMW’s Driving Dynamic Controls which include Eco Pro, Adaptive, Comfort, Comfort+, Sport and Sport+ modes. The various modes alter steering and throttle responses, as well level of damping, accordingly. However, regardless of the choice of driving mode, this Bimmer responds very well to the driver's inputs. The carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, steel and magnesium body structure components improve stiffness. At the same time the aluminum front and rear subframes help keep the weight of this elongated sedan in check.

As a city ride, the 2020 BMW M760i is a total sledgehammer. The eight-speed automatic STEPTRONIC transmission shifts like Michael Jackson’s moonwalk. With heaps of power and an extremely well assisted steering wheel, this Bimmer demonstrates astonishing haulability on the highways. The double-wishbone multi-link front suspension and rear integral-V multi-link suspension are all made of aluminum. They also incorporate BMW’s Dynamic Damper Control for varying driving scenarios. The 2-axle self-leveling air suspension reads road conditions ahead and adjusts to absorb blows from underneath.

But the BMW M760i really surprises by the confidence with which it can tackle curves. With mounds of power available from as low as 1,550 rpm and a rear-wheel biased xDrive unit, the M760i launches ahead like a sportscar. But that barely scrapes the surface of this Bimmer’s full potential. While in Sport mode, the self-leveling air suspension completely counter body movements. The stiffer chassis feels very much in line with the precisely weighted electronic steering wheel, and Pirelli P-Zero summer tires hug the road like a long-gone soldier hugging their family. Placing this Bimmer where the driver wants to feels almost effortless. However, in case you get too excited, the head-up display does blink to remind you that you are driving around in a 5,100 pounds mega-sedan.

2020 BMW M760i Fuel Economy

This Bimmer’s best friend is also its biggest enemy when it comes to efficiency. The monstrous V12, which otherwise serves the M760i masterfully, is no sipper. Rather it chugs fuel like a raging teenager on its 21st birthday.

The intelligent, rear-wheel biased all-wheel drive unit does come to its rescue. It sends most of the engine’s power mostly to the rear wheels. This smart feature allows the extravagant V12 to be as conservative as possible.

2020 BMW M760i Interior

The 2020 BMW M760i is for the driver, and more so for the driven. Kicking back in this plus-size sedan is simply delightful. Those sitting upfront have plenty of space to enjoy this Bimmer’s fun and feature loaded cabin. The seats and instrument panel are all wrapped in luxurious Nappa leather, and fineline black wood trim runs across everything else. Sure the new M760i’s cabin is more upscale than ever now. But the real joy of driving is experienced when you set foot in the second row of this Bimmer.

2020 BMW M760i Seating and Comfort

Firstly, your driver needn’t adjust their seat so you could settle down comfortably simply because there’s no need to. The amount of legroom in the second row is so much you’d have to measure it in yards. The new leather seats now sit higher than before, so you can have a better view of what lies ahead. In case that doesn’t interest you, there are individual touchscreens attached to the back of each front row seats. There’s also a remote tablet in the center armrest if you want to roll around in your lounge, and you can.

The Alcantara headliner with embedded LEDs spread unique tastefulness upmarket enough to impress any and all passengers. Also impressive are the laminated windows that make sure nothing comes in between your indulgence on the commute. Overall, the 2020 BMW M760i with its standard self-leveling air suspension glides more than drives.

2020 BMW M760i Exterior

The 2020 BMW M760i dresses to impress us this year with its redesigned exterior. Everything from the front to the back is brand new. But that redesign may have resulted from something else entirely. Apparently the designers at BMW thought that in order to do justice to the M760i’s massive V12 they needed to make the grille bigger, and that’s how the story unfolds.

To match the bigger grille, the hood has also been raised by as much as two inches. Then in order to ensure that the new M760i didn’t look odd, the rear had to be grilled too. The new tail of this Bimmer gets L-shaped lights with full-width daytime light strips. Also, the blade behind the front wheel arches are now a lot more vertical. But the most interesting piece of this BMW are the door sills that get illuminated V12 logo letting everyone around know that it’s not the Bimmer you set your eyes on everyday.

2020 BMW M760i Competition

BMW M760i vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG S63

The Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 is a great car. It’s fast, it’s comfortable and very fuel efficient. However, the BMW M760i is faster, more accommodating and only slightly less fuel fuel efficient. But while the former is cheaper, the latter offers more boot space. Turns out the only way to decide between the is to drive them, and decide you will once you are done with them both. The BMW M760i offers level of comfort the Merc cannot even come close, and that has nothing to do with the fact that the M760i is also faster. Apparently, the Bimmer’s more expensive price tag and less fuel efficiency is more than made up for by the overall joy that it delivers.

BMW M760i vs. Jaguar XE SV Project 8

The simple difference between the XE SV Project 8 and M760i is the fact that the former is a sports car that aspires to be a comfortable sedan, while the latter is a luxury sedan with the sportscar-like characteristics. But when it comes to striking the perfect balance between performance and practicality, the BMW M760i is unbeatable. This Bimmer is far more closer to the Jag in terms performance than Jag is to the M760i’s level of elegance.

2020 BMW M760i Final Verdict

If you want your luxury sedan to change directions like the wind or if you want your swanky sportscar to be a little more accommodating, what you need is the 2020 BMW M760i. For a price of $157,700 you get more than just one car. There are many cars out there that offer unmatched luxury, and just as many offer unmatched performance. However, there are only a few cars out there that can do both, and that folks is what the 2020 BMW M760i is all about.
