Friends of mine have a black 7x0iL in Pune with 20" wheels. Those are gorgeous alloys! I forget now whether it's a 750 or 760!

Hey guys,
lots of confusion over here regarding the 760Li's.. well most of the 760's in Mumbai are either white or amazing shades of black, of which Mr Sanjay Narang and Mr Amitabh Bachan own the white ones.. The other white 760 which the stig saw is probably a 735 with 760 decals.. it probably has an MP xx xx 760 reg. Mr. Narang is a true Beemer fan as his 760 is a pure drivers car, with basic luxury.. he uses it very often.. where as all other 760's are individual.. fully loaded model.. there are quite a few in ahmedabad as well.. as for singhania.. he owns a 745 again used extensively by him with reg.7777. Let me know if there r any other queries about any beemers sighted anywhere.. will try to help you out..
cheers!

Hey X-machine,
Actually BMW does not approve of such things.. his particular car has the complete badging 760 badging at rear and V12 badging on the front fenders, actually you can make out an actual 760 just by looking at them.. they generally have 245/45/R 19's and 275/40 R19's at the rear.. some of the individual 760's have got 20 inch wheel with INDIVIDUAL decalls on the wheels.. the fake badged car belongs to a builder.. cant disclose the details.. well people think its a 760 and look at it in awe!! so i guess its worth it..

comfortablywacky:
the 750 was produced till 2001, when it was replaced by the 745/760 i/Li,
and ofcourse the 745 will be replaced as you've mentioned.

the car which kbk_75's friend saw (the 7x0iL) was probably a 740/750 (because of the "iL" factor).

with due respect to the privacy and security of the individual(s)/group(s) owning these high-profile cars, it would be best that their identities are kept confidential.

ps. its great that most posts containing automobile pictures on this website have their number plates blocked out.

It's a complete stunner with a beast of an engine hiding under that hood. Love the alloys...do they come standard on it ?
