New models

BMW 730d
With the diesel market continuing to grow, BMW's new 3.0-litre diesel offers buyers the perfect balance of performance, refinement and economy through the latest second generation common rail injection system.
The engine is the most powerful in its class, and offers a 0-62 figure of just 8.0 seconds.
However, this is no fuel-guzzler and a combined fuel consumption figure of 33.2 mpg with a tank capacity of 17.6 gallons mean re-fuelling stops are few and far between.

The diesel variant also features a new six-speed gearbox, which is standard across the 7 Series range.
With prices starting at £44,555 this is sure to be a major addition to BMW's portfolio of luxury models

BMW 730i / 730Li
The 7 Series range is more accessible than ever to those who wish to own a luxury BMW, thanks to the introduction of two petrol variants.
Featuring the only engine to be included across the entire range of BMW models, the 730i and long-wheel base 730Li offer a 3.0-litre, with groundbreaking bi-VANOS engine technology.

BMW 760i / 760Li
Refinement is something that 7 Series owners do not need to shout about - the models speak for themselves.
Nevertheless, subtle cues distinguish the new top of the range 760 models from their cousins.
Even if drivers and passengers miss features like the illuminated V12 logo on the door sills, they will be left in no doubt which model they are travelling in when the engine is fired up at the push of a button.
BMW's third generation V12 engine which features VALVETRONIC technology powers the mighty 760, which achieves 0-62 mph in 5.5 seconds.
But this is not a beast untamed.
Electronic driver aids such as Dynamic Drive, which is fitted as standard on all V8 and V12 models, help keep the 760i on an even keel.
A host of other innovations ensure a luxurious ride for the occupants.
