Even without counting the powerful 6 cylinders in line under the hood, the BMW i7 is a faithful representative of German tradition. The drivability of the silk can feel a little clumsy in tight corners, however, similar to the X7, the vehicle is equipped with a variety of technologies that make it always ready to face any challenge presented to it.

It is highly unlikely that someone would be willing to invest R$1.282.950 in a car that stands out for its luxury and sophistication (including a 31-inch built-in screen with 8k resolution) to risk their assets every day on a race track. In this sense, the BMW i7 xDrive60 represents the ideal option, allowing the vehicle to occasionally have fun on a race track, alongside its siblings designed for this purpose.

However, it is still far from the automobiles of BMW with a sporting heritage, such as the M2 and M3 (which were also tested and we will have more information about these experiences soon).

The opportunity to experience the BMW i7 xDrive60 on padel appeared shortly after testing the new generation of X7 on the Capuava Farm circuit. The comparison between the V8 mild hybrid SUV and the powerful electric sedan became inevitable, considering that the interval between testss was just a few seconds.

In fact, in just a few seconds it became clear that the specifications of the BMW i7 are impressive. O torsion of almost 80 kgf/m, delivered instantly when stepping on the accelerator, is strong enough to push the driver to the seat – and anyone who dares to follow the lap in the padel. **A power is truly haunting.**

A representative of Canaltech had the opportunity to experience the acceleration of the i7 on the farm's internal circuit in three quick laps (literally). Although brief, the tests was enough to experience the capabilities of the two electric motors, one on each axle, the power combined 544 hp, and the torsion of 75,9 kgf/m.
