2013 BMW 760Li: V-12 25 Years Anniversary Edition

07.09.2012

Special Limited Edition Flagship Honors 25 Years of V-12 Tradition


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – September 7, 2012 …Today, BMW launches a very special limited edition 25th Anniversary Edition 760Li V-12 reflecting a rich tradition of V-12 engines that began back in 1987 with the then groundbreaking BMW 750iL when BMW engineers crafted the most Ultimate Driving Machine of its day with the introduction of its first automotive V-12 engine. Only 15 of these very limited edition models will be available to US customers on a special order basis only for BMW Center delivery in early 2013 at a price of $159,695 including destination and handling.


The “V-12 25 Years Edition” BMW 760Li features BMW Individual Champagne Full Merino Leather and, exclusively for this model, black piping. The black floor mats and rear footrests are also complimented by contrasting piping in Champagne. The door sills, headrests and iDrive controllers are all specially badged with “V-12 25 Years Edition”. Also included with this special edition flagship model are:
  • Rear Seat Entertainment with iDrive control
  • 20’ Individual wheel style 301 with performance tires
  • Alcantara headliner in champagne (sides of headliner in black)
  • A/B/C pillars in black leather
  • Rear parcel shelf in Anthracite Alcantara
  • BMW Individual Piano Black Wood trim
  • Piano black wood inlay in steering wheel
  • Shadowline exterior trim
A full range of exterior colors is available for this limited edition as well as additional options, making it possible to craft a truly unique automobile.

The 760Li, with its 6.0-liter Twin Turbo V12, remains the pinnacle in the BMW 7 Series line up boasting 535 horsepower, 550 lb. ft of torque catapulting the big Sports Sedan from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and a limited top speed of 130 mph (155 mph with the M Sport Package option).

Why The normal 760li is limited to 130?? I think it is not true because I went 254km/h (155mph) with my 740li with out M-Sport pack
And 254km/h (155mph) with my 760li 2010 with the M-Sport package

US Models get limited as ROW does not but if we select the Sports Pkg(Defunct) or the M Packet we get it to 155 mph.

Correct me if I'm wrong

LOL @ all the badging/branding with all of BMW's special/limited editions. The V-12 branding is horrible in such a good looking car.

How many cylinders does it have? I must've missed it.

This must be the Kim Kardashian of the BMW lineup- all show.

hooooold on, why the V12 still makes 535 bhp while the V8 from the M5 makes 560 bhp? i think its time for BMW to work on their V12. you should get ATLEAST 700 bhp.

I was going to say the same thing. V12 Twin turbo should make a lot more than 535 hp in today's age.

Here's a secret for everyone complaining about this car. BMW does occasionally 'sell out' and make poor performing cars with lots of badges and sells them at a premium. For reference, see the new M performance models, 335is, M3 Lime Rock, and any M sport model ever. I am sure there are more. Regardless, anyone here that says they wouldn't do the same if they were in the car business is full of shit. These are your margin cars that let you do more interesting things.

V12 is NA is it not? Either way, if it was Bi-turbo it would likely be limited, meaning there is a shit load of power to tap into.

No replacement for displacement remember!
