75th Anniversary 760Li

While I was waiting (not very patiently - Greg Poland can attest to this) for my spot with the F&I person, I saw this in the lobby...

It was quite stunning, I was a little shocked by the sticker, you either have to be abundantly secure financially, a very very big BMW enthusiast, or your company is paying your entire car bill no questions.

There are a lot better options for $200k... Again gorgeous car nonetheless.





Edit: Resized, way too big haha

Nice car. Do you have more pics of the interior and rear?

A $25K mark-up? I was under the impression that Greg's dealership didn't do stuff like that?

I think every dealer does on this big ticket stuff. The local dealer I went for my first 7 still tries to mark up M5's 10k+

Maybe someone should tell them that they're not selling well?

Sorry no interior pics, if I go that way next time I'll try to remember...

If I recall correctly, that car has been on display since at least mid December when I leased my 750.

"Dealer Markup" makes me want to throw up!! MSRP isn't good enough for them? Do they somehow believe that this car will appreciate? Hope it sits on the dealer showroom another 6 months and they have to eat all the interest they are paying!

As said before, "There are a lot of better options out there for 200K" without the dealer "Markup" like the Aston Martin Rapide for example!

Ah it's no big deal, every dealer does that kind of stuff. It's just a way to make it seem like their cars are in such high demand that people are willing to pay a premium over MSRP.

I don't think that 760 will be selling anytime soon. Even in my area where I've seen just about every kind of car, I still haven't seen a 760 on the road - and that's without a huge markup and that ridic V12 badging everywhere! I have seen a few Alpinas though.

Nice to see that this dealer has a sense of humor. The F01/02 is a fantastic car, but anyone paying that price for this car is insane.

I think I'm insane enough to have purchased my 2013 750i with a significant discount.
I would institutionalize myself if I came home with this.
While shopping a few weeks ago, saw a 2012 760 for high $80k. Was very tempted, but how can I even justify a V12 as my DD.

I had a V10 daily driver a short while back...along with a healthy relationship with a few gas stations. Perhaps without knowing it, you make another good point when you mention the '12 760i you saw. The sticker for that car was probably around $130k, and it's selling in the $80k range a year later. These cars take a terrific hit on depreciation in the first few years.

What colors does the 25 Year Edition come in (I thought they only come in Citrin Black)?

I also see the Chinese version has a totally different, two-tone interior!

Let me chime in before to much blogging drama starts........ #1 it ain't my store...................... #2 I do not make up the rules....., #3 don't hold this against me and how I do business, I don't sell cars at this price most of you should know that by now...... this is bringing me back to that 1M with the huge markup,uuuhhh so much drama with that!!!. Excessive in my opinion.... FYI... for those who care....it's one of 25 in the US. Peace to all festers... appreciate the support and business over the years. Hope this blows over soon.

Mein Auto: 2013 760 LI and some othe
Here in the heartland where we freeze our rear ends off this time of year we don't see that dealer markup crap(not where I buy anyway), I think this abuse is more prevalent on the coasts. Mine had a slightly higher sticker(no additional dealer markup) but after BMW stepped up on buying my Alpina back I could not pass it up. They have only built 15 of these and to my knowledge they are not all sold, probably for the reasons listed in this post, above MSRP and the badging. I was not a fan of the badging but the car is so exceptional I got over it fast and the engine, well it's exceptional but like all 760's, still quite the power plant.

Thanks for the pictures.

Not really feeling the "V12" on the headrests, looks a bit tacky for a $140k car even if it is special edition.

With all of the mpg deadlines on the horizon, maybe we won't be seeing V12's from the major manufacturers any longer. I guess all of the badging is a way to announce that you scored one of the last ones!

Mercedes-Benz plans to continue offering a V12 in the next generation S-Class; hope for sportsmanship, BMW does same with the 7...
