Limited Edition BMW M760i xDrive
Only 12 vehicles will be released to the US
MSRP of $200,000 plus $995 Destination
U.S. production scheduled for June 2022


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – January 18, 2022…In June 2022, BMW will produce the very last V12 engine ever to be fitted to a BMW series production road vehicle. To mark the occasion, BMW will offer The Final V12; a limited series of 12 vehicles for customers in the US. Based on the BMW M760i xDrive, these will be 12 of the last V12 BMW vehicles crafted for the US market and will be distinguished by unique badging, wheels, and a choice from the vast collection of exterior colors and upholstery offered by BMW Individual.

BMW introduced their first roadgoing V12 in 1987. The naturally-aspirated, five-liter M70 V12 engine featured single overhead camshafts, two valves per cylinder, and an innovative drive-by-wire electronic throttle. The effortless thrust produced by the 295 hp V12 was key to the original BMW 750iL becoming the standard by which all other luxury sedans of the time were measured.

Today, the V12 engine in The Final V12 displaces 6.6 liters and features BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. Two mono-scroll turbochargers combine with infinitely variable valve control (Double VANOS and Valvetronic) and high-precision direct injection to produce 601 bhp between 5,500-6,500 rpm. This engine together with an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission moves The Final V12 from 0-60 mph in a shattering 3.6 seconds.

Externally, The Final V12 will be discernable from other 7 Series models by a simple, bold “V12” icon at the rear. Special 20-inch Style 760M double-spoke light alloy wheels are uniquely painted the customer’s choice of either Window Grey or Jet Black, then burnished to reveal a dark silver surface highlight. The wheels surround formidable M Sport brakes with a choice of blue or black calipers.

Moving inside, threshold plates at each door sill are inscribed with “THE FINAL V12” as is a plate on the cover atop the almighty 12-cylinder engine. BMW Individual Piano Black Finish trim surrounds the interior and features a console-mounted plaque commemorating the vehicle as “1 OF 12”.

The Final V12 will be offered only in a fully-equipped configuration, including BMW’s Driving Assistance Professional Package, Luxury Rear Seating Package, Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof, Icon Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight, and Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound Audio System. To make their vehicle a uniquely personal statement, customers may select from over eighty exterior colors and several tones of opulent Full Merino leather from BMW Individual.

Soon after the customer has taken delivery, they will receive a custom-built desk trophy to commemorate their specific vehicle, recognizing the special order paint, leather, and vehicle identification number as one of The Final V12 vehicles.

With The Final V12, BMW has a unique opportunity to recognize and appreciate a group of enthusiasts who over the years have shown their enduring passion for the ultimate luxury sports sedan. In the coming days, clients with a long history of V12 7 Series ownership will be approached through their preferred BMW centers with an invitation to purchase the vehicle. Production will commence in June 2022, with deliveries expected in July.


Equipment and Specifications

The Final V12 includes the following exclusive content:
20-inch M Double-Spoke wheels, Style 760M in Window Grey or Jet Black with burnished accent on performance run-flat tires
Center console-mounted plaque “THE FINAL V12” and “1 OF 12”
Threshold plates “THE FINAL V12”
Engine cover plaque “THE FINAL V12”
“V12” badge replacing “M760i” badge on decklid
Commemorative gift customized specifically for the customer’s vehicle

Sounds like they even have a selection process. Not sure if it’s more like Ferrari or Porsche.

The fact that there's only 12 being made should mean they'll be somewhat collectible. Interesting to see what the take-rate will be and if any will trickle down to regular customers.

Why does a twin turbo 6.6L V12 produce less power than a twin turbo 4.4L V8 in the M5?

Why not just use that engine for the 760 when the M5 started using it years ago?

Just curious

Could they drop this in an M8 coupe and call that the first and last edition? I'd buy one.

Sounds like a pretty cool last hurrah for the outgoing V12.

I wonder what kind of color combos will end up getting chosen by the buyers. Would be nice if they end up releasing photos of the 12 to showcase the colors chosen.

I think people like the effortless thrust and refinement of the V12 vs the higher revving snap of the TT V8.

Although the Alpina B7 seems to refute this argument.

I think that the greatest engine of all time is a BMW V12. That would be the S70/2. Most people say that the McLaren F1 is the greatest car of all time, and that's because it has the greatest engine. I wish that they shove the N74 engine in the M8 for the last great BMW V12 car.

Because its a V12. There is a completely different nature and character to a 12-cylinder vehicle from its longer and intoxicating start up sound to the pure smoothness and refinement they provide when cruising that even the best 6 and 8-cylinder engines can't match.

Sad times that it's the end of the V12 but thankful that they are recognising it in the form of a limited edition 7er.

With a V12 and just 12 cars made, this will be a collectible, no doubt, and likely worth much more in just a few years.

Hopefully the selected 12 do some really unique color combinations, would be sad if one of them just go with a usual black/black. Regardless I do hope BMW shows us all 12 models when they're done!

Thankfully there's a way to visually configure the 7-Series with all the individual colors available.

You're jumping on a thread celebrating the last of the V12 BMW's and trying to shit on everything. Why?
Lol

All jokes aside. Sad to see these go. Like others have said. I'd enjoy one of these if finances weren't an issue.

V12 is really sweet. Back in he 90s I had two 850's with V12's. I once had an engine problem so it went to limp home mode, which was turning off one side of the engine and running on 6. Even that wasn't too shabby. But 200k for a car is kind of ridiculous and I suspect they will be bid up higher than that.
