BMW ‘The Final V12’ special edition 7 Series marks the end of an era

BMW simply revealed that it will be producing its last V12-powered production car in June this year. The only BMW that includes a V12 engine now is the M760i xDrive car, as well as of course, that 7 Series will certainly without a doubt be the car that will certainly lug BMW’s last V12.

To commemorate this occasion, BMW is going to make a “Final V12” scandal sheet version of the M760i, of which only 12 will certainly be built for the united state market. Prior to we enter what makes the Last V12 unique, let’s discuss the V12 engine itself. BMW’s current V12 engine is a large 6.6-liter twin-turbo that makes a whopping 601 horse power as well as 627 pound-feet of torque. That’s good enough for a 0-60 miles per hour run of simply 3.6 seconds in the huge ‘ole sedan. It’s paired with an eight-speed transmission, as well as, fun fact, the M760i carries out launch control starts from second equipment rather than very first on account of the enormous torque it makes reduced down in the rev array.

When it comes to what makes the Last V12 unique, it obtains a variety of unique style as well as styling touches. To begin, BMW adds a “V12” badge on the rear– the standard M760i has no such exterior badging. The 20-inch wheels are painted either Window Grey or Jet Black, then “burnished to reveal a dark silver surface highlight.” Those wheels will certainly additionally be hiding the customer’s option of either blue or black brake calipers. As you would certainly expect, BMW has its full Person paint color selection readily available to choose from– BMW claims clients can pick from over 80 different outside colors. Regrettably, the only image we have of the cars and truck currently is of the “V12” badge set against some wonderfully glittering black paint, so we’ll need to wait to see the end product.

On the inside, you’re welcomed with “THE LAST V12” door sill plates. The same inscription can additionally be discovered on the V12’s engine cover. A console-mounted plaque reads “1 OF 12” to make certain anyone riding along in the automobile understands its exclusivity, as well. As you could anticipate, all Final V12 editions will certainly include every alternative box checked. You’ll also obtain a custom-built desk prize that details the paint color, indoor natural leather choice and VIN of your particular M760i.

To buy this unique 7 Collection, it seems like you’ll have to be come close to by BMW rather than waltzing into a dealer. Just pick customers with a “long history of V12 7 Collection possession will be approached,” so if that’s not you, your possibilities of purchasing are slim. For those who bought the initial BMW 750iL back in 1987 with its 5.0-liter V12 and have stuck with BMW V12s all these years, then we think there’s an opportunity among these Last V12s might have your name on it.
