BMW 750i and 750Li models make 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft. When equipped with the available all-wheel drive system (called 750i xDrive)--which helps improve on-the-road traction and stability and normally sends 60 percent of power to the rear wheels--the 7-Series can get to 60 mph in just 5.0 seconds, according to BMW. At the top of the lineup is the flagship 760Li, with a V12 engine making 535 horsepower, running through an 8-speed automatic transmission. 

What makes the ActiveHybrid 7—available in both short- and long-wheelbase forms—strange is BMW’s boast that it is the quickest hybrid sedan on the market. If speed is the objective, we’re not sure why a hybrid is the answer. Likewise, if fuel economy is the end goal, tuning the twin-turbo V-8 gas engine for an additional 40 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque seems silly. However, if a 7-series customer believes he needs a car more powerful than the 750i but doesn’t want to step up to the 12-cylinder 760Li—which we think he should—and also wants 15 percent or so better fuel economy, BMW has just the model.
