Special edition BMW 760Li V12 M Bi-Turbo headed for MIddle East

Filed under: Sedan, Performance, BMW, Middle East, Luxury



Despite what we imagine is a lot of pleading among well-heeled BMW fans, the German brand still won't build an M7 to do battle with the Audi S8 and Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. Instead, the most potent 7 Series money can buy is the 760Li, a rear-driver with a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 that can churn out 535 horsepower (if that's normal, just imagine what an M7 would be like).

For fans in the Middle East, though, a stylistically sportier 760Li is on the way. Confirmed by BMW is the 760Li V12 M Bi-Turbo, a special-edition that retains the 6.0-liter engine, but adds a new M Sport body kit, along with the buyer's choice of 19 or 20-inch M wheels. Exterior colors include a series of traditionally M-specific shades borrowed from the M5 and M6, with eight colors available in total, according to 7post.com, the 7 Series fan blog that uncovered the car. Most notably, M badges are fitted around the 7's exterior.

The cabin is mainly a mix of currently available options for 7 Series buyers, although the limited edition does come with "V12" embroidery on the headrests. Oyster Nappa leather is standard, with three choices of contrast stitching, while the controls feature ceramic finishes.

BMW is calling this a "local edition," making its sale in the Middle East analogous to the BMW M3 Lime Rock Park that was limited to 200 units just for the US. In other words, don't plan on seeing one of these in the North American market. As we mentioned, BMW has confirmed the car for the Middle East, and we're trying to get some official, hi-res assets. We'll update this post if anything becomes available.Special edition BMW 760Li V12 M Bi-Turbo headed for MIddle East originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 27 Dec 2013 11:28:00 EST.
