Twenty-one years ago, when the first V-12-powered 7-series debuted (with a comparatively paltry 300 hp), we suggested that BMW "buy or borrow a Rolls-Royce . . . to see how best to convey the aura of absolute superiority." In the two decades since then, BMW has indeed bought Rolls-Royce (the entire company, not just a single car) and has obviously learned a thing or two about luxury. The 760Li drips with opulence but remains a luxury sedan best enjoyed from the driver's seat. Especially if you're the type of driver who wants your car to slice through traffic with the speed of a sports car and the poise of a stretch limousine.
