2010 BMW 760Li. Will the old economy please stand up?

Far be it for Valetster to claim to be immune to the Bavarian charms. One need only scroll down to our older posts to see us mostly sing the praises of the Roundel. X5M with 555-hp? Hells yeah. 420-hp M3? Without a doubt. But the new 7 is leaving us a little cold. It’s design is evolutionary at best, and the front end is a bit heavy. But the CEO folk need to get to work like the rest of us, so if you’re gonna do it, do it in style. But V12, twin-turbo style? Yeesh. This is a complete 180 from the larger meme of less-is-more, hey-i’m-just-glad-to-be-here vibe. I’m sure this engine was being planned sometime after shock and awe and before surge, when the stock market was up and our houses were still worth something. While we marvel at the engineering, we wonder if it’s the right car for the wrong time.
