    CarWale's Take

    Good Things
    • Evocative looks
    • Supreme performance        
    • Practicality and advanced features
    • Fitting flagship with sporty and luxurious demeanour.
    • Modern, comfortable and tech-laden interiors.
    • Still available with the glorious V12 in 760Li guise.
    Could be Better
    • Unattractive CBU pricing
    • Competition offers better value
    • Low ground clearance 
    • Subjective looks, not for everyone’s liking.
    • Ride quality is no match compared to the S-Class.
    • Optional luxury packages are expensive.
