BMW’s dealer in Abu Dhabi certainly gets the nicest toys to play with as once in a while it takes delivery of a fully loaded car finished in a striking shade. Case in point, this particular M760Li (M760i in the U.S.) has been painted in the eye-grabbing Rallye Green hue from the Individual catalog and (thankfully) it has been applied on most of the “hockey stick.” The aftermarket front spoiler and the Alpina rear trunk lid spoiler complement that look. Satin chrome accents around the beefy front vents as well as on the side ones and mirror caps round off the changes on the outside.
The interior is just as special as the green body, featuring a fine-grain Merino leather upholstery in Opal White with black contrast stitching. Glossy black accents look great (when the surfaces are perfectly clean) while in the back there’s the rear-seat entertainment system packing dual screens. Being an M760Li version, it means there are a bunch of “M” trinkets inside and out to further boost the car’s appeal.
Basically a luxury sofa on wheels, the top dog in the 7 Series family is also crazy fast for a fullsize sedan that weighs well over two tons. Its biturbo 6.6-liter V12 is rated at 601 horsepower (441 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) to enable a 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) sprint in merely 3.6 seconds. As standard, the M760Li has an electronic top speed limiter programmed by BMW to kick in at 155 mph (250 kph), but get the M Driver’s Package and take the car to the track or to an unrestricted section of the Autobahn in Germany and it will do 189 mph (305 kph) with ease.

This Rallye Green example is far from being the first tricked-out M760Li to be on display in the capital of the United Arab Emirates in recent times. The very same dealer had an Estoril Blue example (pictured above) with a red interior just last month, not to mention a Java Green M3 with a plethora of M Performance goodies.
