BMW India has confirmed that one unit of the BMW Individual M760Li xDrive V12 Excellence THE NEXT 100 YEARS has been allotted to India. The name might be a mouthful, and definitely goes down in history as the longest car names ever, but the aforementioned isn’t your regular 7 Series.
Only 100 units will be made, and the model will make its world premiere on April 19 at the BMW Classic in Munich. The limited edition V12-powered 7 Series commemorates the 100th anniversary of BMW, along with two other models: the BMW Individual 740Le iPerformance THE NEXT 100 YEARS (with xDrive) and the BMW Individual 750Li THE NEXT 100 YEARS (with xDrive).
Distinctive features that make the models stand out are: a unique “Centennial Blue Metallic” paint finish, ‘NEXT 100 YEARS’ branding on the headrest, Merino Smoke White leather upholstery, BMW Individual Black Piano Finish interior trim, and ‘1 of 100’ lettering on the floor console. Owners will also receive a complimentary Montblanc for BMW Centennial Fountain Pen, also limited to 100 units.
The V12 powered version (the one coming to India), is based on the M760Li, so under the hood resides a 6.6-litre M Performance TwinPower Biturbo V12 petrol engine that produces 448 kW (610 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. The M760Li can sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The BMW Individual M760Li xDrive model V12 Excellence THE NEXT 100 YEARS will be the most expensive production BMW till date.
