In the past years, BMW has been known to continuously downsize their engine offerings, from V10 naturally-aspirated units to V8 twin-turbo, inline-six, four-cylinder and to an upcoming three-cylinder TwinPower. But many of us tend to omit the fact that the Munich-based automaker still offers a high-capacity and power V12 powerplant.

Dubbed N74, the 6.0 liter is a twin-turbocharged V12 DOHC piston engine which replaced the N73 naturally-aspirated predecessor. The powerful twin-turbo outputs 535 horsepower @ 5250 rpm and 750 Nm (550 lb-ft) of torque at 5000 rpm.

The engine is currently used in the 760Li model available for sale in the United States. An upgraded version of the N74 producing 563 bhp (420 kW) and 780 Nm (580 lb-ft) out of a 6.6 liter displacement is used in the Rolls Royce Ghost. With the engine mated to the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2013 BMW760Li runs from 0 to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds.

To emphasize that this is the highest-end 7er, the 760Li sports a slim chrome bar between the four chromed tailpipe tips in the rear apron.

In the U.S., the 760Li is only offered with a rear-wheel drive configuration and the base price starts at $140,200.

Stay tuned for our own review of the 2013 BMW 760Li.

    One of the most under appreciated cars in the world! What a beaut!

  • Auto Fan

    The only useless car in its class.

    • BayerKraft

      Could you make any reason to your, sorry, naive statement?

      And what comes to power figures, who believes in them, must live in bubble and deny the reality. No one has true figures, besides BMW team.

      • Auto Fan

        My statement is realistic unlike yours. The S-Class easily beats the pathetic 7 series n all fronts.

        • fredyschiftan@aol.com

          you are still here , please go some other place with your childish comments, how old are tou ! auto fan better auto fool !

          • Auto Fan

            Another unreasonable comment by a typical stupid BMW fan. You can be described with a single word: LOSER!!!!!

          • fredyschiftan@aol.com

            yes thank you Im happy to have the best car BMW, eat your heart because whatever you drive is allways under BMW the no 1 Brand in the Automotive Industry !! And by the way Im not offended you call me stupid because people reading your Car Fan comments know who the real fool is ! Auto Fan ……… what a joke !! what is your real name Coward!!! The 760 is a the leader in its segment .

          • Auto Fan

            Tell me an indicator by which your useless crap called 7 Series is the leader in its segment. Your empty comment proves how stupid you are, ridiculous idiot!

          • Monha

            people know that the s-class mercedes benz is just beautifull and so is the 7series BMW, there is no need for such empty arguments iam a BMW and mercedes benz fan i have the 760li and the s550 mercedes benz they all turn heads. dont say nothing or comente anything if you do not have them.

  • mckillio

    This engine is very under powered, it should be at least 600hp and 600ft/lb

    • viper

      I’ll say , at least 620hp and at least 800Nm…since it is a V12 AND a a twin turbo , for some reason they didn’t go with the max power output from the 6.0l….maybe a more powerful model in the future..

  • Anthony

    The 760LI could easily get 600HP+ if you swap out the factory ECU unit which limits the top speed and power output. I switched my ECU in my 2010 750LI to a Dinan Ecu and easily got 510+hp on the dyno. The technician told me the factory ECU severely holds back the cars full potential.

  • Anthony

    It has potential for much more power if you take off that stupid factory ECU.Look at how much power they got out of the Alpina B7 with a few tweaks to the engine.
