New BMW 750i does 0-60 in 4.7 seconds...WTF

Mind shattered.

We all know BMW understate those times too, simply incredible for a 4500lb sedan. That instrument cluster is incredible too!!

I'm pretty sure a s600 or S55/65 goes 0-60 faster than that.

The guage cluster is cool though.

This is a 750i, rivals the S550 I believe. The 760 would rival those larger engines.

I really don't like the look of anything on this new car. The gauges look cheesy to me. Pretty underwhelmed here, was expecting so much more for some reason.

The performance numbers are nice, otherwise meh.

A 2012 S600 0-60 is 4.5 and S65 is 4.2
The S550 is 4.8, a tad slower then the 750i but would be a good race.
It's amazing how fast cars are these days, I remember when anything under 6 was fast.

All I saw was a couple pictures of some overly large kidney grills, and some eco-babble... Did I miss something? Nope, nope, just another BMW I couldn't care less about.

Can barely tell the difference between a 328I and a 750i. Their styling sucks
