BMW’s centenary edition 7 Series

April 22, 2016

The sixth generation of the BMW 7 Series launched in 2015 sets benchmarks when it comes to operating comfort, intelligent networking and feel-good atmosphere inside the car.

With technology and design highlights such as the Carbon Core body structure, BMW eDrive technology, anti-dazzle BMW Laserlights, chassis control system Executive Drive Pro, BMW Gesture Control, Remote Controlled Parking, Executive Lounge and Sky Lounge panoramic glass sunroof, the BMW 7 Series underscores the company’s claim to leadership in the luxury segment more than ever before.

The all-new flagship follows in the footsteps of BMW Individual models and features a variety of special additions unique to this model, adding to the luxurious ambience of the new BMW 7 Series. Produced at BMW’s Dingolfing plant the manufacturing process is defined by uncompromising quality standards, traditional style consciousness, and handcrafted precision.

The anniversary model’s prominent status is recognisable at first glance by the BMW Individual exterior colour Centennial Blue metallic and the handcrafted signet. The colour variant available exclusively for the 100 centennial models is attained by a particularly elaborate painting process that accentuates the model’s expressive design.

An exclusive, handcrafted signet bearing the lettering “THE NEXT 100 YEARS” adorns the B pillars, the interior strips above the glove compartment on the passenger side as well as the front and rear seat headrests. The cover of the cup holder located in the front area of the centre console boasts the inscription “1 of 100”.

With a focus on interior comfort, the BMW Individual M760Li xDrive V12 THE NEXT 100 YEARS features BMW Individual Full Merino leather in Smoke White and thanks to its soft, fine-grain surfaces the leather remains breathable and provides supreme comfort. Quilted seat surfaces in a woven look, hand-woven piping and contrasting seam applications bear witness to a production process that is defined by precision and attention to detail. Floor covering and floor mats, safety belts and the BMW Individual headliner also come in the colour Smoke White and the stylish interior ambience of the centennial model is capped by BMW Individual interior strips in Piano Black Finish. The BMW Individual leather steering wheel with fine-wood applications is in the same finish.

This limited edition model is based on the M760Li xDrive V12 engine providing stunning performance with exemplary refinement. With TwinPower Turbo technology incorporated from the M760Li xDrive V12 model, this M Performance engine produces 610bhp and 800Nm of torque. It’s harnessed by a highly sophisticated chassis specifically tailored to the model, with Integral Active Steering as standard, and deployed to the road via BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system with a rear-bias for more dynamic handling.

This enables the car to accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a governed top speed of 155mph. It now also links up with the Auto Start-Stop function, which is just one measure that contributes to an impressive official combined fuel consumption figure of 22.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 294g/km.
