BMW is looking to the future and ready to set its next 100 years in motion, all while paying homage to the previous century of automobile design. This month BMW announced the “BMW Individual 7 Series THE NEXT 100 YEARS” models to mark the company’s centenary, representing the historically evolved technological competence of the world’s leading manufacturer of premium automobiles and emphasize the exclusivity with which both luxury and innovation are expressed. The BMW 7 Series centennial models are being produced in a limited quantity with only 100 units available worldwide with three different engine variants. BMW said the limited model available in the U.S. market will be the BMW Individual M760i xDrive Model V12 Excellence THE NEXT 100 YEARS. The V12 engine is also of historic significance for the BMW 7 Series. In 1987, the top-of-the-range version of the second-generation BMW 7 Series was the first 12-cylinder production model made in Germany during the post-war era and it featured the world’s first use of throttle by wire technology.

The centennial model features a 12-cylinder engine generating 610 horsepower combined with state-of-the-art comfort, luxury and dynamic agility. This model will be available by the end of 2016.
