BMW 760Li

A quarter of a century ago, Germans from BMW launched their first production V-12 engine, called the M70. The unit was first offered to the E32 7-Series flagship sedan. The engineers have decided to unite the straight-six units and so they formed a 60 degree V12 5.0-liter capable of developing 300 horsepower and 330 lb. ft. of torque. From this new unit, the Bavarian engineers have developed a S70/2 for the McLaren F1 supercar. To celebrate 25 years of V12, BMW decided to present a special edition, the 760Li model, which is actually part of the 2013 7-Series lineup.


The model will be built as a limited edition and only 15 units will be offered, all on the North American market. The starting price per unit was established at $ 159.695. The standard BMW 760Li has a starting price of $ 140.200. All prices include destination fees. In terms of interior, the new V12 25 Years Edition features Merino leather with champagne and specially made black details. This is not all. The special edition also features black floor mats and rear footrests. The designers have also offered the special V12 25 Years Edition badge on the headrests, door sills and iDrive controllers.


To transfer the power to the road, the engineers have fitted the BMW 760Li with 20-inch wheels. For the exterior, the carmaker offers a lot of options and so, each owner can create its unique perfect car. The Special Edition 760Li is powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of generating 535 horsepower and 550 lb. ft. of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.


Apparently sales have already started and because only 15 units will be brought to the US, the ones interested should put their order before they run out. The lucky owners will receive the keys of their brand new Special Editions at the beginning of 2013.
