If you’re a Wall Street executive, you know that time is money. Can’t stand being driven to work at the pedestrian speeds a regular BMW 760iL is capable of? Have a chauffeur with an FIA Superlicense and need to keep his skills sharp? Stress no more, mister baron-of-the-boardroom, we know how you’re spending your next quarterly bonus.
G-Power, the German tuner known for their work with BMW, has turned their attention to the 760, the big dog of BMW’s lineup. By nearly doubling the boost pressure of the V-12’s twin turbos, remapping the ECU, adding larger injectors and a completely new exhaust they’ve created a 760 with 725 horsepower and 738 ft-lbs of torque. The eight speed transmission is also beefed up to handle the motor’s additional power.
How fast will this get you to the country club? G-Power claims a 760i will hit 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 215 mph. Expect the larger, longer 760iL to get there just a tick slower. In other words, much faster than your neighbors Mercedes S class.
Not that you’re worried about cost, but here are the details: the drive-it-yourself 760i converted to a G-Power Storm will cost you $495,500, while the “I’m too important to drive myself” 760iL will set you back $510,000. Hey, it’s only taxpayer’s money, so why not order one of each?
