New cars: BMW 750Li

What the critics say about the $84,200 BMW 750Li

Los Angeles Times
Despite some quality and reliability issues, BMW still deserves its self-appointed title of Ultimate Driving Machine. The flagship 750Li just may be “the best luxury sedan in the world.” Like a “mighty winged Pegasus,” it can carve through mountain switchbacks with almost surreal composure. Fully optioned, the price tag reaches $110,170. But can its wealth of exotic electronics be trusted?

Car and Driver

This sedan with a sports car soul offers a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that can sprint to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. Its “remarkable” night-vision system can detect pedestrians, and the Luxury Seating package includes a heated steering wheel, power-rear sunshade, rear side-window sunshades, heated rear seats, and driver-seat massage. But why no side-mirror turn signals?

Automobile
The newest in the 7-series will never win a beauty contest “without a nose job to reduce those enormous nostrils.” But coddled passengers ensconced in this sublimely supple six-speed automatic will never feel anything “so undignified as a vibration” as the car flexes its muscles. In fact, it’s so quiet the only sound at 155 mph is the speed governor going off like “an alarm clock mistakenly set for 4 a.m.”
