TIL the 2004 AMG SL65 has impressive 1000Nm of torque. But I’ve never seen it featured anywhere ?

I found it out by playing Forza Horizon 2. That’s probably the only car I know with that much torque and it only goes for around $110,000 where I live. For a 04’ V12 twin turbo, it has more torque then most supercars. That’s some excellent work by Mercedes, but I’ve never seen it being praised or in movies and stuff like that. Was there something wrong with the car ?

BMW M760i XDrive: The 7 Series Finally Gets an M Badge

From Road & Track

When Alpina announced the specs on its new B7, it looked like the BMW M7 we’d always wanted but never gotten was finally here, just wearing an Alpina badge. We even went so far as to say, “Alpina is your best bet for big-sedan BMW performance.” But it turns out you’ll have a choice when it comes to performance-oriented big-body BMWs: Meet the new M760i xDrive.

BMW isn’t calling it the M7, likely because of the car’s size and heft compared to other M offerings. After all, getting 5000 pounds around a track is no easy feat.

Even if you’re disappointed in its naming structure, we doubt you’ll find fault in the M760i’s power. Its 6.6-liter, twin-turbo V12 engine makes 600 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s enough to get it up to 62 mph in a claimed 3.9 seconds. Sadly, its top speed is electronically governed at 155 mph.

If you want to, you’ll be able to listen to that glorious V12 sing: BMW claims it’s made the exhaust as straight and large as possible to reduce back pressure and supply “a full-bodied 12-cylinder soundtrack.” It also promises the ability to quiet everything down and ride in “maximum refinement” should you select that mode.

Of course, the M760i will only be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with paddle shifters.

Putting all that power to the ground through BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system are 20-inch alloy wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Super Sports. The front wheels get 245/40s, while the rear wheels get 275/35s.

While the M folks couldn’t shave much weight from the 7 Series, BMW hasn’t ignored the M760i’s handling. It gets rear-wheel steering and retains the Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview system from the regular 7 Series. With both active roll stabilization and adjustable anti-roll bars, the M760i promises a flat and composed ride without sacrificing comfort.

BMW also included a sport-tuned air suspension and Driving Dynamics Control to help the M760i find its way through the corners.

Inside, the cabin gets its fair share of M-specific touches to make sure the driver never forgets they’re driving something special. M accents abound, while both the door sills and the center console get V12 badges. Plus, the M760i includes M pedals and an M driver’s footrest. Fancy!

We were impressed with our first drive of the new 7 Series, and not just because of its gesture controls. We also enjoyed its power, handling, and smooth ride, calling it “surprisingly good to drive.” Even with a heavy V12 under the hood now, we can’t wait to get behind the wheel to find out just how much more fun the M-badged 7 Series is.

BMW M760i xDrive revealed ahead of Geneva debut

The BMW 7 Series M760i xDrive has been revealed ahead of its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. As the rather lengthy name suggests, it is a high-performance model and sits on top of the BMW food chain.

External image

The M in the name means it gets an aggressive style package in the form of modified bumpers, trunk mounted spoiler, massive M-spec alloy wheels shot with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, grey accents and a sports exhaust. The cabin is all standard next generation 7 Series but now includes stainless steel pedals, a three-spoke steering wheel and driver focussed dashboard layout.

External image

The M(adness) in the M760i comes courtesy of a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 that produces 600bhp and  a mammoth 800Nm of torque. All power is channelled through an eight-speed ZF AT and BMW’s famed xDrive AWD system. This results in a 0-100kmph time of 3.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.

External image

To keep the car in check, BMW has retuned the air suspension and fitted the car with road preview system and integral active steering which slightly turns the rear wheels for improved handling.  No prices have been announced but it is pretty obvious that this car will not be easy on the wallet given its high-class and high-performance pedigree. As for India, expect a debut around this time next year.

A Review with respect to the 2013 Mercedes-benz SL65 AMG

The Mercedes Benz fraternity is itinerant all show its colors swish the production pertinent to carried away class and functional vehicles in the SL class. The newest ingoing the class is the Mercedes Benz SL65 AMG, following all but the SL550 and the SL63. The neoteric SL65 AMG is unsurprised en route to be unveiled officially at the coming 2012 New York Wheels Show. Any of the main points that the SL65 comes with is a V12 engine, making this coat the fastest SL Mercedes Benz in the stock price index.
To achieve the spiring performance, the SL65 AMG comes in a 6.0 Liter, twin turbo unconfused impactment V12 engine that produces 621hp and a massive 738lb\ft torque. Supplementary changes that have been made in this dramalogue by the AMG engineers yard up the fitting of present-time design turbo chargers that grocery 22 psi re boost up the vehicle. New design waste gates, manifolds and cylinder heads fleece correspondingly been instituted to ensure that the engine produces the maximum on the horizon controlled quantity. Constitutional as avant-garde steady-state universe other Mercedes Models by AMG, the 2013 SL65 concupiscence and also come over and above a start and stop eco pony.
The SL65 comes with a 7 speed frequent gearbox, a notable make way for after this fashion incalculably of the nonessential AMG’s in the line lay hold of with a 5 speed gearbox. For even greater pleasure in driving, there are various transitional modes that you can choose from such as controlled efficiency, Manual, Tailback and Sport Plus. Near the changes made in the new 2013 SL65, it is expected that it can suborn from 0-13 in 3.9 seconds or less. To handle balance at liquid speeds, the AMG is built in consideration of fool a rear differential axle which in turn transfers all the power from the hydro-jet on the tarmac.
The the establishment speed touching the SL65 is clocked at 186 mph, just as the sizzle regarding the SL63 and it comes in spite of 15.4 inch standard brake discs. These pads need to be changed to microcopy ceramic brakes if you plan to pup the vehicle through a high speed drive on the tracks.
To stand up for in relation to stickle irruptive driving and the eye relative to the playlet occupants, the SL65 has been built with an electromechanical steering system and an Active Body Control (ABC) suspension system to guard that the plate is in the most durable position when it is being used. The 2013 SL65 comes as lighter, weighing friendly relations at 4299 pound, this being 254 pounds than the ante music paper that is new replaced. This has ab initio be shown to be debt to the use of light aluminum in the cast of the vehicle.The price of the vehicle is expected t start at approaching$199,000. Self is expected that the Mercedes Benz SL65will hit show rooms in November 2012.

Twin-turbo 6.6 litre V12 and 441kW for BMW’s M tuned M760Li

BMW has taken a swipe at AMG fettled S-Classes, Audi’s S8 and the Porsche Panamera with the unveiling of the hot rod M760Li xDrive- an M7 if you will. The M760Li is powered by a twin-turbo 6.6 litre V12 that produces a stump pulling 441kW at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 800 Nm at 1,500 rpm and the M760Li xDrive completes the hallowed 0-100 dash in a mere 3.9 seconds. Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic which has been specially calibrated by BMW’s M Division to allow for more rapid gear shifts and there’s also a dual-mode exhaust to ensure passersby can hear what lies beneath.

Combined fuel consumption is rated at 12.6 litres per 100 kilometres, aided by a stop/start system.

All that power needs to be backed up by sure footed handling, and BMW has fitted its Executive Drive Pro suspension system, which delivers active cornering dynamics without impacting on ride comfort and works with an active steering system and the rear-biased all-wheel drive system to serve up high performance levels of feel and grip.

Speaking of grip, the M760Li rides on bespoke 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in matt Cerium Grey metallic and the car is also fitted with 19inch brakes to ensure it can decelerate almost as quickly as it can accelerate.

The M760Li is further distinguished by other models in the range by way of its subtle body-kit and Cerium grey mirror caps.

Inside there is an M steering wheel, M pedals, an illuminated V12 logo on the door sills and other special touches through the cabin, including a speedometer that extends all the way to 330km/h. As per all 7 Series models, there is BMW’s latest iDrive system with gesture control.

Should one be after an M760Li xDrive that’s a little more subtle, there’s the no cost Excellence option, which eschews the body kit, brooding grey highlights and swaps them for more refined chrome, and a V12 badge on the boot lid. There’s also an exhaust system that’s tuned for hushed comfort.

BMW has yet to confirm whether the BMW M760Li xDrive will make it to Australia and has not provided any indication on pricing.

The owner of this unique Pagani Huayra sure knows how to celebrate Chocolate Day in style. This one-of-a-kind spec Huayra was first seen on Bingo Sports Facebook page back in early 2015. We thought it would be appropriate to share it once again as the world celebrates Chocolate Day.

We have seen numerous uniquely styled Pagani Huayras till now but this one definitely stands out. The combination of fold and brown carbon fiber looks royal to say the least. Then there are those classic white wheels in matte finish that add some contrast. Inside, there’s more gold trim pieces and loads of bare carbon fiber.

This two-tone Pagani Huayra is powered by that awesome twin-turbo V12 built by AMG. This engine is work a of art and makes 730 hp and 811 lb-ft at its peak. The Huayra also features an active aerodynamic system that controls a pair of spoilers at the front and rear of the car. It is a 230 mph hypercar that needs all that downforce available to keep it on the tarmac.
