BMW 'The Final V12' special edition 7 Series marks the end of an era:

BMW just announced that it will be producing its last V12-powered production vehicle in June this year.

To commemorate this occasion, BMW is going to make a “Final V12” special edition version of the M760i, of which only 12 will be built for the U.S. market. Before we get into what makes the Final V12 special, let’s talk about the V12 engine itself. BMW’s current V12 engine is a big 6.6-liter twin-turbo that makes a whopping 601 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. That’s good enough for a 0-60 mph run of just 3.6 seconds in the big ‘ole sedan. It’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and, fun fact, the M760i performs launch control starts from second gear instead of first on account of the enormous torque it makes low down in the rev range.

The only BMW that comes with a V12 engine now is the M760i xDrive sedan, and yes, that 7 Series will indeed be the car that will carry BMW's last V12.Comment Now! Toyota is close to revealing a redesigned Sequoia sharing its platform with the redesigned Tundra.the iX, a battery-electric midsize luxury SUV ; and our guest this week, the i4 M50 sedan, an electric—but otherwise nearly indistinguishable—iteration of the well-groomed 4 Series Gran Coupe.The production XM is expected to be a standalone model for the M division which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022.

To commemorate this occasion, BMW is going to make a “Final V12” special edition version of the M760i, of which only 12 will be built for the U.S. BMW has been spotted testing a prototype for a redesigned M2, and it's wearing the least camouflage gear yet. market. Sweet, swift, swank, swell, fast as hell, hushed as a chapel, cool as marble, minty fresh. Before we get into what makes the Final V12 special, let’s talk about the V12 engine itself.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 borrowed from the M3 and M4. BMW’s current V12 engine is a big 6.

6-liter twin-turbo that makes a whopping 601 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. The new racer is unique in that it's completely devoid of a rear wing, and unfortunately Peugeot isn't willing to give away any of the car's aerodynamic secrets. But even at Autobahn speeds, just ask; the upwelling torque (max 586 lb-ft) will mush you lovingly into the seat. That’s good enough for a 0-60 mph run of just 3.6 seconds in the big ‘ole sedan. It’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and, fun fact, the M760i performs launch control starts from second gear instead of first on account of the enormous torque it makes low down in the rev range. All BMW’s trick suspension kinematics—including rear-air suspension and logic-controlled dampers—are made better, more supple in action, by the car’s low-slung C-of-G. As for what makes the Final V12 special, it gets a number of unique design and styling touches. The vehicle's CLAR platform is capable of supporting electric powertrains and we know one is destined for the next 7-Series.

To start, 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. Along the way I realized I was not getting the message BMW executives were intending.” Those wheels will also be hiding the customer’s choice of either blue or black brake calipers. As you’d expect, BMW has its full Individual paint color selection available to choose from — BMW says customers can choose from over 80 different exterior colors. Unfortunately, the only photo we have of the car now is of the"V12" badge set against some beautifully shimmering black paint, so we'll need to wait to see the final product. “ In the i4 M50, when the stage lights go down, you can hear a pin drop.

On the inside, you’re greeted with “THE FINAL V12” door sill plates. The same inscription can also be found on the V12’s engine cover. A console-mounted plaque reads “1 OF 12” to make sure anybody riding along in the car knows its exclusivity, too. The cars built here will be available with a variety of powertrain configurations, including legacy petrol, gas-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and battery-electric (BEV). As you might expect, all Final V12 editions will come with every option box checked. You’ll even get a custom-built desk trophy that lists the paint color, interior leather option and VIN of your specific M760i.

To buy this special 7 Series, it sounds like you’ll have to be approached by BMW instead of waltzing into a dealer. The mix “will be determined entirely by demand,” said Chairman Oliver Zipse in his Q3 2021 statement. Only select clients with a “long history of V12 7 Series ownership will be approached,” so if that’s not you, your chances of buying are slim. For those who bought the original BMW 750iL way back in 1987 with its 5.0-liter V12 and have stuck with BMW V12s all these years, then we suspect there’s a chance one of these Final V12s could have your name on it. The start button and gear selector are conventional in design, as are the console’s various drive-mode switches. Related video: .
