It's been 25 years since BMW introduced it's first V-12 engine, which appeared in the then groundbreaking BMW 750iL. To celebrate this milestone BMW is producing a limited edition "V-12 25 Years Edition" that features Individual Champagne Full Merino Leather and, exclusively for this model, black piping. The black floor mats and rear footrests are also complimented by contrasting piping in Champagne. The door sills, headrests and iDrive controllers all sport "V-12 25 Years Edition" badges as well.
Just 15 of these models will be sold in the U.S. at $159,695, including destination and handling. These lucky 15 buyers will find that their ride includes a rear seat entertainment system with iDrive controls, leather finished A/B/C pillars and a rear parcel shelf in Anthracite Alcanta. Piano black wood inlays complete the upscale interior. Externally 20-inch wheels and Shadowline exterior trim are the only clues that this is a special 7 Series.
There are no modifications to the 535 horsepower, twin turbo V-12 engine that produces 550 lb-ft. of torque and is capable of propelling the car to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a (limited) top speed of 130 mph. That's unless you opt for the M Sport Package, which ups the top speed to 155 mph.
