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[M1] [TOB2] 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, [HJA4U3] [TOB4] 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.
