To answer the Mercedes S 500, BMW has rolled out the most expensive variant of 7-Series in India, namely 760Li, reports Autocar India. This top of the line 7 series executive luxury saloon in powered by an amazing as well as powerful 6 liter V12 engine producing 535 BHP and is capable of achieving 0 to 100 Kph in just 4.6 seconds! Below is an excerpt from the source:

The 760Li calls attention to the presence of extra cylinders with V-12 badges on the side vents, a larger double-kidney grille, and four ports to the chrome exhaust tips instead of two. All BMW 7 series variants feature a new steel and aluminum platform that has longer wheelbase and wider track than the current models.To drive it is as you would expect, given the outputs, very brisk indeed. BMW Claims a 4.6 second timing to 100kmph which seems completely believable for a car this size. Peak torque is available from 1500rpm onwards and it doesn’t let up until 5000rpm. Trying to exercise the engine, it results in so much speed that you are forced to back off before the engine gets even remotely vocal. And for a turbocharged engine, the response is extremely clean and immediate.

The only real sign of forced induction the faintest distant hiss. Other than marginal extra refinement, the 760Li doesn’t do a great deal that the 750Li doesn’t already. What the 760Li does do rather well though is to fill the role of the top of the line Chairman’s Car. The BMW 760Li comes with a price tag of Rs 1.65crore; of which, the registration and tax charges alone come to whooping Rs 25lakh.

There is quite a big difference between the price of 750Li and 760Li, The 750Li is available at Rs.93,30,000 (Ex. Delhi) where as 760Li is priced at Rs.1.65 Crores. As they say exclusivity comes at a cost. [;)]

BMW is being aggressive on Indian Market since they entered !
And as last year they went ahead of Merc and became the largest luxury car manufacturer in terms of sales,they seriously want to hold that position.
