BMW 750Li

WHATS MOTOR doing in a long-wheelbase 7 Series? In fairness, it does have a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with 330kW and 650Nm, and shifts to 100km/h in 4.7sec worth remembering next time you see a chauffeur in one at the lights. It could be us, too while the LWB adds 140mm and 45kg, benefitting, obviously, the spoilt rear passengers, its quite nice to drive. Tickled properly the V8 makes a sweet noise, it has heaps of grunt, and it rides like its on a cloud.

Probably goes without saying it prefers corners of the fourth and fifth gear variety, and will hardly inspire driving for the sake of it. But otherwise its fast and nails its brief. LC SPECS 4.4L V8, TWIN-TURBO, 330KW/650NM, 8.0L/100KM PRICE $312,700
