Is BMW about to bring out a top-end, long wheelbase 7-Series – with a VW/Audi-style W12 engine under the bonnet?
That’s one conclusion to be drawn from this photo, snapped by eagle-eyed PHer vinceh in London this week. If true, it would push the top end of BMW’s price list even higher -- the 760Li currently sports a tag of £83,730 -- and the performance of Munich's portly 2,255Kg luxo-barge even higher; the 445bhp 6-litre V12 in the 760Li will power it to 62mph from rest in a highly respectable 5.6 seconds.
Alternatively, maybe someone’s just having a larf with some badges...

Oh, that's upsetting. Who's he trying to fool?
It's like the guy near me who had a E36 316i touring (in that famous M colour, Evergreen), which he de-badged and replaced with an M badge. Then he upgraded to an identical E46, complete with M badge. Eek.
