The power band is probably insane. They aren't tuned for output in these ultralux cars they are tuned for smoothness. I'm sure if M really wanted it tuned out you'd see a ~800-900 hp easy.

If they went with the same specific output as the m4 it would be pushing 950


Would be nice if they gave a rebirth to the s70/2 using modern tech and put it in an M8. Since they are still doing v12 engines and all 😍

The Alpina is anything BUT subtle, you can see its wheels from space!

The B7 LOOKS badass, hopefully this sounds badass? I'd take this purely for the V12 but in a perfect world, I'd have both

This is pretty damn awesome! Only thing I hate are the wheels. Does not look like a M-Sport/M Performance type wheel. Should have gone with something more sporty yet luxury/classic instead like the 312 wheels.

LWB only. No SWB V12s for this generation. US is only getting the LWB models so BMW of NA decided to badge them all as an 'i', hence the M760i instead of Li.


P.S. non-M-performance 760Li is coming too btw.

Why bother with a bespoke engine for this limited-volume platform if you already have a suitable engine in the lineup?

Unless.... we're looking at the next M5/6 engine in a mild state of tune.

Because it is a luxury car. It's all about being smooth. A 1993 M3 with a 3l l6 engine produced almost the same amount of power as the 1993 750il with a 5l v12 engine. Each engine has it's own application.

V12 don't really have an advantages in performance these days. It's just all about the smoothness of the engine, V12 badge and that it's the most expensivest shit. Ain't nothing wrong with that, though. Thank God ze Germans still want to make big engines.

BMW tests the RR products(prototypes) with the MPE engine software - just to see what would break IF anything on the test mules. On the V12 it makes 680 PS. I wonder if BMW will release a MPE kit for the 7er. One can hope!

For myself... I fancy the Alpina B7. I'l take mine in Alpina Blue.

OK, BMW. Here's what's going to happen:

You're going to take that V12, remove all the turbos, and then shove it into the M6.

SSSSHHHHHH! Don't ask any questions! Just shut up and do it.

M cars need to be more agile and don't need the extra weight of the additional 6 cylinders. Displacement is not everything.

I can see this being their top seller in the 7 series lineup. People already spending that kind of money won't mind another $10k for a V12

This'll show those fancy AMG people who's boss...

"Yeah, just rollin' in with my new 6.6 V12 guys."

I'm pleased to see almost zero negative feedback in the other posts. BMW is doing a good thing, here.

I mean, check out that V12 badge! I had serious doubt that I'd ever see that on a 2016/17 BMW, let alone something with an M badge too. Granted they do seem to throw it around, it's still a shocker.
