Why would you buy a 7-series instead of a 5-series. Because of this ...

I liked the 7 series when they were discreet.

Only if I was a plutocrat or German CEO who wanted to know that I have the most expensive and fastest BMW available.

Otherwise, no. For £132k (surely this ought to be in the "How Much" thread too?) you could get a perfectly decent and comfortable 7 series of slightly lower rating and spare cash for something esle.

And a new low for BMW too - four wanky exhausts. Do designers have no shame?

Well quite. Although the equivalent Merc is the price of a Boxster more expensive...

Good thing is you'll be able to pick one up for £30k in 3 years time.

You can already get £30k off and it hasn't been launched yet, which makes it about £20k more than an equivalent 740d, as that would need just over £20k of options to match the spec of the M760.

Edit: BMW have a GFV of £56k after 3 years / 30k miles or £52k with 45k miles.  Still significant depreciation, but the 0% finance on all 7 series helps.....

That's ridiculous, and makes the list price a joke.

But isn't all the company car tax based on list price and these are all going to be company cars one way or another.

List prices are a joke with most manufacturers, it would be nice if the new road tax rules will sort that it, but I won't hold my breath.   BMW offer up a £20k 'deposit contribution' on the configurator so nobody is going to pay even close to list.

Would you rather have a £39999 car and pay £140 ved or a £60k car that you paid £40k for with £450  ved , but you can tell your golf friends you have a £60 k car?

Makes the car even more appealing. Something about having a V12 up front ...

In my experience golfers couldn't give a shit what car you drive.

Now that nice new shiny driver that costs £400, that's a different matter....

Fair enough. Pampas grass fringed neighbors then.

I really like it. Good to see BMW still making something with a high-polluting, gigantic V12. I've never understood why an M7 isn't suitable for the M brand, but the X6M is. An M7 would probably have nearer 650 bhp, which wouldn't be an issue for this V12.

Because as impressive as 600 bhp is, the upcoming M5 will have that output from a V8. A bit like the old 760i, that had 537 bhp from its V12 - less than the F10 M5.
