BMW M760e Looks Dapper in Sapphire Black and Dravite Gray

You can make your new BMW 7 Series more special for 12,000 euros. Because for the first time, a two-tone paint finish is a factory option on a BMW production series. BMW only ever issues a limited number of vehicles. With the 7 Series, however, they can experiment with the idea of two-tone paint. The 7 Series is produced at the Dingolfing plant. It is where BMW has invested over 300 million euros in preparing for the production of the new luxury limousine. Part of the money goes to the print shop, where BMW has developed a unique method for two-tone paintwork.

The two-tone paints add a few hours to the process. But lead times for a basic standard finish are currently under ten hours. But how does it function? Initial large-scale, standardized production processes that use the primary colour are entirely automated. Then, the cars are “side-tracked” through a special process where the body is physically masked. Also, the coach lines and contrasting colours are painted by hand.

This two-tone paint process is visible on a G70 7 Series that was on display in Slovakia. The Sapphire Black and Dravite Grey M760e was built by the regional BMW office. A 21-inch Jet Black 909M aero wheels also come with the paint job. Naturally, the all-electric BMW i7 will also become at hand in two-tone paint finishes. From the stunning Cashmere Silver Metallic/Aventurine Red Metallic to Tanzanite Blue with black, BMW offers a variety of two-tone paint schemes.

The inline-six 3.0-litre engine in the electrified performance-focused M760e generates 380 horsepower (280 kW) at 5,200 rpm and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft). This allows the M760e to get a total power of 571 hp (420 kW) and 800 Nm combined with the electric motor (590 lb-ft). With the powerful hybrid configuration, it takes 4.3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h). With a sprint time of just 2.7 seconds, you can reach speeds of 80 to 120 km/h (50 to 75 mph). This gives you plenty of performance for overtakes.
