    • 0-300 kph acceleration comparison between the BMW M760li and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

      Speedometer overlay videos are flawed because speedometers often lie. They are not nearly 100% accurate and that is why GPS should always be used for comparisons such as this. That said, holy crap is the M760Li a beast.


      The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid has a dual clutch transmission and is rated at 680 horsepower thanks to its electric motor assisting. It's fast but it's also heavy considering the standard Panamera Turbo is over 4500 pounds. What does the E-Hybrid really weigh?

      Not that the M760Li is a lightweight. All wheel drive, a 600 horsepower 6.6 liter twin turbo V12, and an extended wheelbase make for a heavy recipe at roughly 4800 pounds. However, there are no batteries or electric motors.

      The more powerful Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid should easily hit 300 earlier, right? Wrong. The M760Li trails a bit off the launch but just becomes a freight train past 100 miles per and easily hits well past 300 kph which the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid does not even reach.

      It may not be an official M car but the M760Li is a force to be reckoned with and clearly an Autobahn terror.

        I just realized this engine might be the biggest displacement production car engine currently, if you don't consider Veyron's W16 a production engine.

        The Bugatti W16 is most certainly a production engine. Apart from that, the Bentley V8 is 6.75 liters, and so is the outgoing Phantom’s NA V12. I think the new Phantom also uses a slightly larger displacement version of this engine. And then there’s the diesel truck engines that Ford/GM/Dodge offer. Viper of course is no longer around, but that was the biggest until they stopped making them.

        And holy hell is the M760 fast. Incredible car. And yet the depreciation is incredible. Can’t wait to pick one up for nothing in a few years.

        One needs to view the Joe Achille's video with Bovensiepen in B7 traveling at 207 mph on the Autobahn and conversing casually as if they were in a Buick going 55 mph on a U.S. highway.

        I'm with you there. Maybe in a few years they will be affordable.

        A 6.6 liter all wheel drive twin turbo V12? Yes, please! How about a tune on top? Maybe some hybrids?

        Oh yeah the Bentley V8 I totally forgot about that. The phantom uses this 6.6 engine.
