The German automaker, the largest luxury automaker in the world, is celebrating this year an important milestone – 100 years of existence. The celebrations will include four concepts from its brands.
The namesake BMW brand has already delivered the while BMW Motorrad will take its time and present a motorcycle prototype this fall. That timeframe is apparently also being used by the BMW brand which is reportedly going to introduce a new 7 Series Centennial Edition. This limited series will come packing a wide variety of exterior and interior design enhancements – while nothing is official the publication discusses premium leather upholstery, a wide array of accessories and numerous 100th anniversary badging.
No word on powertrain credentials has perspired just yet but the 7 Series for now can be had in two engine options in the United States. The base model is the 740i which comes around with a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine pushing 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, whereas the 750i has a mightier 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 pushing out 445 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. These versions will of course be joined by the flagship M760i xDrive that has been equipped with a 6.6-liter M Performance TwinPower Turbo V12 engine that delivers in excess of 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The limited edition might feature a production run of just 100 units and it will be found across select markets only worldwide.
