2013 BMW 7-Series gets a limited edition.

BMW has decided to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the V12 engine by introducing a special edition of the 760Li which will only be available in the United States. The German carmaker plans on bringing only 15 units of this special 7-Series model and these will be delivered in early 2013. Prices start at $159,695 including destination and handling charges.

For this money clients will get the 2013 BMW 760Li with the massive V12 twin turbo 6.0-liter engine that produces 535 hp (399 kW) and 550 lb-ft (744 Nm) of torque, enough for a 0-62 mph sprint in 4.5 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. Those who opt for the M Sport Package will be able to hit a top speed of 155 mph.

To make it more special than the standard model, this limited edition 7-Series rides on 20-inch Individual wheel style 301 rims wrapped around in performance tires, while some of the additional goodies include a rear seat entertainment system with iDrive, piano black wood inlay in steering wheel, A/B/C pillars in black leather and Alcantara headliner in champagne.

Correction: US models will not get the "V-12 25 Years Edition" badging on the trunk lid. More details are available in the press release below.

What´s wrong with the 760Li? It looks better than the W221 and the V12 is already as fast as the W221 AMG´s. The W221 is such an ugly car especially since the latest facelift and since a S250 CDI with AMG package looks like a S-Class AMG and costs more than 120.000€ with some options!!! I mean a 4 Cylinder S Class???? And this headlights.... When I think back at the W220 facelift, that was a real dream car!!! W220 S65 for me :D

All it's missing is a tan vinyl top with shiny chrome V-12 badges and some whitewall tires.

I think your wrong about the 130mph top speed, from factory on it's 155mph and with M pack should be 175mph or 188mph... But i could be wrong too, but 130mph is very very slow for such a car!!!

why do people like V12 engines? the current S63 (V8) can sprint from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds while the S65 does it in 4.2. the difference is only (0.2) seconds. audi S8 with its new V8 engine can sprint from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. what is so special about the V12? its way more expensive and has more gas consumption.
