Here’s How Much Faster A BMW M760Li Is Than An M3

The M760Li is the fastest accelerating car BMW produces right now, so how does it compare to an M3 Competition Pack in a straight line battle?

Remind me later

BMW’s M760Li may be a big, two tonne hulk of a car, but with a fancy all-wheel drive system and 592bhp from a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12, it’s staggeringly fast. It’ll do 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds, which - until the new M5 arrives - makes this the fastest accelerating BMW in the current line-up.

We’ve already seen how it gets on when going up against similarly sized, similarly powerful luxury saloons, but how about another car from the BMW stable? That’s the setup in this Car Wow drag race, with the uber-7 pitted against the 444bhp BMW M3 Competition Pack.

As you’d expect, the M760Li wins the day, but the margin of its victory may surprise you. Don’t forget, while it has much more power to play with, it’s also carrying a good few hundred kilograms of fat on board. Not bad, BMW, not bad at all…
