In the face of increasingly stringent emissions regulations, at first we like the V12, V8 and other large displacement engines gradually become a “luxury”. Recently, according to the latest news inmedia, BMW plans to phase out the V12 engine M760Li model this autumn. But for now, the coverage is only in the European market, and it is unclear whether other markets will stop selling.
BMW is currently developing a new generation 7 Series, and the M760Li model has not found a successor, so the next generation model or no V12 version exists.
In fact, as early as last year, it was reported that Markus Flasch, BMW’s chief executive, had said: “I don’t think BMW will see any new 12-cylinder models in the future, except for the M760Li models currently on sale.” “
As we all know, the BMW M760Li has always been the top model in the BMW family sequence, with a 6.6T twin-turbo V12 engine with a maximum power of 585 horsepower, a peak torque of a staggering 850 Nm and a 100km acceleration in just 3.8 seconds.
It’s worth noting that while the next-generation 7-series has given up the V12 version, the engine won’t go away. Because BMW will continue his life with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Cullinan.
In addition, the new Rolls-Royce Gust will also be fitted with the V12 engine.
