That's the sound of BMW's M7-60 Li XDrive - BMW's most powerful vehicle to date. It boasts a brand new M Performance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder gasoline engine. The 6.6-litre motor generates a maximum output of 448 kiloWatts or 610 horsepower.
20-inch light-alloy wheels help give the 5,24 metre high-performance sedan its sporty look.
Its new M sports exhaust system with flap control ensures a mighty "V12 roar". The M7-60 Li XDrive also comes with an automatic eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.
From engine speeds of 1,500 rpm the car has a maximum torque of 800 Newton meters. It's got an electronically limited top speed of 250 kilometres and hour. But the optional M Drivers Package will let you reach 305 kilometres an hour. The downside: on average, the BMW consumes 12-point-8 litres per 100 kilometres.
Those who don't want the M7-60 as a race car but still covet a status symbol can opt for the “Excellence” model. It comes with plenty of chrome on the exterior.
Given the vehicle's dimensions, there's lots of room inside, especially in the back. There's even a fancy footrest.
