Impressive machine, but rather disgusting ostentatious styling and ridiculous levels of chavtastic badges. One should not need to shout about the fact it is a V12. And the M badge on a 7? Also those fake rear exhausts? FFS they're on everything now!
But it is a V12 !!! Now if it was a 730D I might agree somewhat. This is a V12 saloon BMW with bonkers power, way more than will ever be needed. And this is pistonheads we're supposed to love bonkers on here.
Oh and I agree about fake exhausts.

To me it's one of those, glad it exists but makes little sense in the UK.
Which, admittedly could apply to a few cars smile.

Saw one outside BMW Ruxley last week (I think) and it's mighty impressive to look at.

The E38 750 models came with a V12 badge...

Maybe BMW could consider piping in the intake sounds like Porsche or Lexus.

Regardless, kudos for BMW for making a V12 7 series with the M treatment.

This car has surely got to be one of the most effective and eloquent ways of getting from A to B without even a hint of trouble.

Great to see BMW doing something different
After the ugly period they went through.
All the new stuff these days is so poor in quality,
But this looks really nice ,had a late 8 series
20 years ago in the right spec
Still looks amazing even now,.To me it was the last real BMW along with the E38.
But good luck with this although I'll stick with my v8 AMGs as its such great fun to bash
Porsches for half the money
Keep up the good work everybody

As pointless as it is fabulous. Long may they continue to make cars like these.
