In a recent press release, BMW announced that it is finally ending the production of its V12 engine by June this year. At the moment, the only vehicle in BMW’s lineup carrying a V12 power plant is the BMW M760i xDrive, making the current-gen, range-topping 7 series luxury saloon a significant part of automotive history.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How many The Final V12 units will be produced?

    BMW will only produce 12 examples of the limited and exclusive luxury sedan.
  • Where will BMW release The Final V12?

    The Final V12 will only be released in the US market only to select customers who have a long history of V12 7 Series ownership.
  • When will BMW start producing The Final V12?

    Production will start in June, with deliveries expected in July.
  • Giving the concluding V12 engine a proper send-off, BMW will be releasing a limited-edition model based on the BMW M760i xDrive (picture shown below) aptly named “The Final V12.” Only 12 of these limited-edition executive saloons will be made and they will be released exclusively in the US market.

    According to BMW, the V12 engine in The Final V12 displaces 6.6 liters and features BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. Two mono-scroll turbochargers combine with infinitely variable valve control (Double Vanos and Valvetronic) and high-precision direct injection to produce over 600 horses. This engine together with an eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission moves The Final V12 from standstill to 60mph in only 3.6 seconds.

    The Final V12 will be fitted with a bold “V12” icon at the rear, special 20-inch Style 760M double-spoke light-alloy wheels, “THE FINAL V12” inscribed threshold plates and engine cover plaque, as well as a console-mounted plaque commemorating the vehicle as “1 OF 12,” to separate it from other BMW M760i xDrive models.

    BMW said that The Final V12 will be offered only in a fully equipped configuration, including BMW’s Driving Assistance Professional Package, Luxury Rear Seating Package, Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof, Icon Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight, and Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound Audio System.

    Those lucky enough to nab one of these luxury sedans can further customize their rides by selecting from over 80 exterior colors and several tones of opulent Full Merino leather from BMW Individual.

    In addition, customers who will be adding this piece of automotive history to their collection will receive a custom-built desk trophy to commemorate their specific vehicle, recognizing the special order paint, leather, and vehicle identification number as one of The Final V12 vehicles.

    With The Final V12, BMW has a unique opportunity to recognize and appreciate a group of enthusiasts who over the years have shown their enduring passion for the ultimate luxury sports sedan. In the coming days, BMW's US clients, with a long history of V12 7 Series ownership will be approached through their preferred BMW centers with an invitation to purchase the vehicle.

    Production will commence in June 2022, with deliveries expected in July.
