A quarter century strukes us as a worthwhile milestone to celebrate the twelve-cylinder engine.
There aren't a lot of automakers producing V12 engines these days, but BMW is one of them. In fact it has been since 1987 when it debuted a 7-Series sedan with a twelve-cylinder engine. Now BMW is celebrating that quarter-century milestone with the 760Li V12 25 Years Anniversary Edition. The special edition features BMW's latest 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 producing 535 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque, but that's not all.
The anniversary edition is further distinguished from the "ordinary" 760 with such special touches as champagne-colored merino leather abd Alcantara headliner with black piping, floor mats, leather-wrapped pillars and wood trim, with special badges adorning the trunklid, door sills, headrests and iDrive controller. Other special features in the anniversary edition include a rear-seat entertainment system, 20-inch wheels and Shadowline exterior trim. Only 15 examples (oddly not 25) will be offered in North America at $159,695 apiece. (Pictured in white is the stock 760Li, with specific images of the special edition's interior following.)
