Set for a debut in Q4 next year, the most powerful BMW 7 Series with a monster V12 engine has briefly emerged online.
According to some rumors, the most powerful version of the newly introduced flagship sedan could actually benefit not from one, but two V12 options. The monster engine seams now on the brink of confirmation, as Bimmerpost has reported it spotted the forthcoming M760Li on BMW’s online configurator. This leak was brief, but it gave Bimmerpost the opportunity to snatch some photos with the top of the range 7 Series. Just like all other BMW models with the M badge on their tail, the high-end version will have the M sport package as standard and also some accents in Ferric Grey are to be expected.
In terms of powerplants, it is most likely that M760Li will borrow the 6.6-litre V12 engine from the exquisite Rolls-Royce brand. The power is expected to be boosted over 600 hp for the high-performance option, while the second variant will be gentler with focus on luxury and personalization. It is yet unknown if xDrive system will be available, but the base price is expected to start from 140,000 euros, making M760Li one of the most expensive BMW models ever. Bimmerpost says it will hit the showrooms sometime in the fourth quarter of 2016.
If you are not willing to wait until then, the 7 Series flagship can currently be had in just two gasoline versions: 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder delivering 326 hp (240 kW) and found in the 740i/740Li and the feistier 4.4-litre TwinPower Turbo V8 that churns out 450 hp (330 kW) and runs on the 750i xDrive/750Li xDrive versions.
