Infotainment screenshot indicates BMW might be developing a V12 X7 after all
BMW has repeatedly stated that it was going to get the twelve-cylinder engine out of the next М760Li, replacing it with a hybrid powertrain. Today, things suddenly started looking like a V12 X7 might be a possibility in the future.
Browsing through his entertainment system, a BMW X7 40i owner allegedly found a previously undiscovered digital dash skin with a mysterious ‘X7 M60i’ logo on it. The company never announced a model like that.
It would be reasonable to assume that, during the development of the X7, the Bavarian automaker considered releasing an X7 M60i specced similarly to the current М760Li. Among other things, this would mean a 6.6-liter V12 engine with 609 PS (600 hp, 447 kW) and 800 Nm (590 pound-feet) of torque. Equipped like this, the next-gen 7 Series would be able to accelerate 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.7 seconds.
Considering the recent rumors about the alleged development of a Mercedes-Maybach GLS V12, the Х7 M60i might make sense as the main rival of that luxury vehicle.
