Smooth, effortless acceleration. Even when trying to launch hard, the 750 eases out of the hole to 60 in 5.2 seconds. Long gearing makes acceleration deceptive in conjunction with ultra-smooth engine.
Turns out, even a 4,600-pound BMW stops like a 3 Series. No drama, no fade. Just a solid, consistent pedal every stop.
On the skid pad, it rotates around the nose on throttle. Impressive balance and communication for a car this large. Stability control has excellent calibration. This car shrinks around its driver in the slalom and its electronic performance enhancers (powertrain and chassis) actually work despite confusing interface.
