Spy Shots: BMW 755ih spotted undisguised
Under the 755ih's long hood sits a version of BMW's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 powerplant that's been mated up to a new eight-speed automatic transmission with a 20kW pancake electric motor sandwiched in between. The AC motor can provide an impressive 155 lb-ft of torque to the already potent 400-plus horsepower gasoline mill.
BMW is claiming a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency from the mild hybrid over the standard 7 Series V8, along with a bit more performance and, naturally, a slightly higher price tag.
