limited edition 25th Anniversary Edition 760Li V-12

BMW launches a very special limited edition 25th Anniversary Edition 760Li V-12 reflecting a rich tradition of V-12 engines that began back in 1987 with the then groundbreaking BMW 750iL when BMW engineers crafted the most Ultimate Driving Machine of its day with the introduction of its first automotive V-12 engine. Only 15 of these very limited edition models will be available to US customers on a special order basis only for BMW Center delivery in early 2013 at a price of $159,695 including destination and handling.

The "V-12 25 Years Edition" BMW 760Li features BMW 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 are all specially badged with "V-12 25 Years Edition". Also included with this special edition flagship model are:
  • Rear Seat Entertainment with iDrive control
  • 20' Individual wheel style 301 with performance tires
  • Alcantara headliner in champagne (sides of headliner in black)
  • A/B/C pillars in black leather
  • Rear parcel shelf in Anthracite Alcantara
  • BMW Individual Piano Black Wood trim
  • Piano black wood inlay in steering wheel
  • Shadowline exterior trim

Limited edition BMW 760li

A full range of exterior colors is available for this limited edition as well as additional options, making it possible to craft a truly unique automobile.

The 760Li, with its 6.0-liter Twin Turbo V12, remains the pinnacle in the BMW 7 Series line up boasting 535 horsepower, 550 lb. ft of torque catapulting the big Sports Sedan from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and a limited top speed of 130 mph (155 mph with the M Sport Package option).

I love the F-01/02, but not this one. All that V-12 stenciling...and what's with the head-rests??? For a "limited edition", I would expect changes/modifications to the exterior. This announcement looks like something that would appear in the Neiman Marcus Christmas "wish book". Pass...

You can control the power output with the rear I-drive controller. So if your driver is a little pedestrian, you just twist the knob to give it a bit more oomph .

I thought all the limited edition coming to US is Citrin Black with Individual wheels.

The white 7 picture is wrong.

BMW Celebrates 25 Years of V12s with a Special Edition 760Li Priced at $159,695
In 1987, BMW took a big step towards being a real premium carmaker with the launch of its first ever V12-powered automobile, the 750iL E32, which was followed shortly after by the 850i that offered the first V12 engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox on a road car.

The 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V12 unit generated 295hp (300PS) at 5,200 rpm and a peak torque of 450Nm (330 lb·ft) at 4,100 rpm. Ever since, BMW has offered a V12 engine option on its flagship sedan series.

The Bavarian carmaker is now paying homage to the V12's 25th anniversary with the launch of a limited production version of the current 2013MY 760iL named "V-12 25 Years Edition".

According to BMW, only 15 of these limited edition models will be offered to US customers on a special order basis only, for delivery in early 2013 at a price of $159,695 including destination and handling.

On the outside, all 15 cars are painted in the BMW Individual exterior finish of Citrine Black metallic and ride on bespoke, 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels.

Inside, the 25th Anniversary edition is fully trimmed in fine-grained Merino leather upholstery with black piping that's exclusive to this model. Furthermore, the black floor mats and rear footrests are complimented by contrasting piping in Champagne, while the door sills, headrests and iDrive controllers are all specially badged with "V-12 25 Years Edition".

Other features include a rear seat entertainment with iDrive control, Alcantara headliner in champagne color, A/B/C pillars in black leather, BMW Individual Piano Black Wood trim for the dashboard, doors and steering wheel, a rear parcel shelf in Anthracite Alcantara and Shadowline exterior trim.

The 760iL "V-12 25 Years Edition" is powered by the same 6.0-liter Twin Turbo V12 found on the regular model. It boasts an output of 535 horsepower and peak torque of 550 lb-ft that good enough for a 0-60 mph (96km/h) in 4.5 seconds and a limited top speed of 130 mph (209km/h), which can be increased to 155 mph (250km/h) with the M Sport Package option.

I'm at the dealership in Ocala FL, and they have one on the showroom floor. I have to say the new facelifted 760's look amazing. Everything about this car is amazing and the 25th Aniversary is even crazier. The sales guy was telling me that they embed a piano string in the wood (saw this and it looks amazing, but I still prefer the Alpina B7 Piano Wood with Pearl).

Here's the MSRP sticker if you guys were wondering what the config on the one I saw was. So we've spotted 1, 14 to go

18.6k option jeez! That's the second most expensive option after the Steinway Limited edition - was what 50k option?

At least they made it an individual edition, although they should have made truly bespoke wheels not available - not even on a normal individual edition.

Agreed. They should reallly stitch it into the seat cushion or backrest. Friends/associates may miss the stitching on the headrest - but they proabbly wouldn't miss it if it were on the cuhion itself. Benz puts the AMG logo on the backrest.

^ agree it's way to high up and looks out of place esp. with the connecting lines.

yes, and that begs the question what on earth is bmw doing? what are they afraid of? They make a limited edition "special anniversary" only 15.....that's exactly the time to be a little bold......not average....not the best management decision.

pffffttt! They can do better on their flagship model. Just not enough thought and creativity there.
