4. BMW M760 Li[Not a valid template]
BMW’s big limousine, the 7-series, gets an M badge for the first time. It’s not exactly an M7 but it’s the closest we’ve seen to one, with bags of power from a 6.6-litre, twin turbocharged V12. The engine produces 592bhp and 590lb ft at just 1500rpm, which is good enough for a 0-100kph dash of 3.9 seconds – almost half a second faster than the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG. The M760Li carries the suffix X-drive, which denotes all-wheel drive, and is only available in long wheelbase form, which should make it exceedingly appealing for the Middle East market.
