Produces 394 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque.

BMW has introduced the new 750d xDrive and 750Ld xDrive.

Set to go on sale in Europe in July, the models are equipped with the world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine.  The 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine produces 394 horsepower (400 PS / 294 kW) and 560 pound-feet (760 Nm) of torque.  It is connected to an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the 750d xDrive to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 155 mph.  The 750Ld xDrive accomplishes the same task in 4.7 seconds and its top speed is also limited to 155 mph.

Despite being more powerful than the previous tri-turbo engine, the new mill helps to cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 11 percent.  To put that into prospective, the models average between 39.8 and 41.2 miles per gallon (47.9–49.6 mpg imp / 5.7-5.9 L/100km) with CO2 emissions between 149-154 grams per kilometer.

BMW credits the improved performance to the engine's four turbochargers which feature multi-stage turbocharging technology.  The company says this "enables boost pressure to be built up even more quickly at lower engine speeds and therefore prompts incredibly swift responses to throttle applications from idle."
