The BMW Dutch website is showing the entry-level 2016 BMW 730d with a quad exhaust option, a feature usually reserved for the high-end V12 760Li.

BMW will offer initially four models of 7 Series, the 730d, 740i, the 740e and 750i, all of which will be available in Li long wheelbase variants. The North American market will only receive the long wheelbase models. The 740i and 750i will be rear-wheel drive as standard with xDrive being optional for harsh weather climates, though the 740e will be xDrive only.

Even though the previous generation F01/F02 7 Series had the 760Li as its flagship, the lengthy press release issued this week omitted to mention the high-end 7er.

Most likely BMW will continue to offer the 760Li, but not until next year. We expect the same engine as the previous generation, a 6.0-liter V12 all-aluminum engine with Twin-Turbo Technology, High Precision Injection with fuel injected directly into the combustion chambers. The engine produces 535 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque. It runs from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds.

The 2016 BMW 7 Series will arrive in the US showrooms in the fall of 2015. The MSRP for the BMW 740i will be $81,300 and the BMW 750i xDrive will be $97,400 (prices do not include Destination and Handling). A 760Li model would certainly cross the $100,000 mark.

Hat tip to Klier!

    bmw will always do a 760 no matter what. even if every car in the world was running on water there still would be a V12 760.

      No one said they wouldn’t. The real question is if they will use the Ghost’s unit, with 620hp, or if they’ll improve it right now then implant it in the future RRs, in another modified version (with maybe an upcoming 700+hp variant). So the real questions are about the displacement (6.6, 6.0 ?), the output (620hp ?), the fuel consumption (a bit less for more hp ?), and again if they use a new engine or “just” update.
      Then we’ll have to wait agin (or maybe not ?) for an (maybe again) upcoming performance version, so M770i or M7 (or even both who knows :O).
      My bets would be: 620hp with an updated unit from RR, so 6.6 but less fuel, for the 60i then 650hp for an M70i sort of engine (which will later go in an updated Ghost), and after (not at the same moment as these two) a 750hp M7 (with this one going, in an even more powerful form, in the next Wraith, and maybe the next Phantom). With 750hp M7 there is room for a 500hp M3/M4, 550hp M4 GTS, 650hp M5/M6 and a 680hp M5 CP.

        some people on youtube were saying theres no v12 and were like RIP V12 etc lol but i told them its still there and they got happy. I think they will use the ghost unit they said the v8 will also be used in future rolls royces im guessing the v8 be used in rolls royce SUV. or it could be just an update like you said maybe we will see but i can 100% see a gap for an M7 i think its perfect for this generation “With 750hp M7 there is room for a 500hp M3/M4, 550hp M4 GTS, 650hp M5/M6 and a 680hp M5 CP.” yep but ive heard people say the next gen M5 M6 will be 600bhp with either v10 bi turbo the one they were making before the TT V8 or the TT V8 but updated i hope they use a new engine

          Most people on Youtube are casual viewers, i’m not even sure they know what V12 means. Maybe they BMW take their time because they’re finishing the development of the B78 who knows ? A completely new V12 would be nice, and would fill all the suppositions i made earlier.
          The next M5 won’t have a V10 let’s forget the V10=M5 thing. It only happened a single time, and they haven’t made one for years now.
          Of course the G M5/M6 will be at least 600hp because the F already are x) So updated V8, maybe the new B68, in an S configuration. I don’t know how they’ll call their new ///M versions of the new engines though, as they haven’t made one yet. If it’s the B68S/S68/SB68 or whatever you want, it’s more likely to have water injection, maybe some carbon in it as well (airbag and stuff), so lighter (as the whole car), and more power. It could also be an hybrid car, with the current 600hp V8 with an electric engine… But that means the M5 would make over 721hp, and i think it’s a bit early for that.
          We’ll see how things go…

            I think it’s about time the M Cars go hybrid in the next gen! It would be again a revolution, and why not? They will be lighter, because they’ll use light-weight materials in the G’s, so put batteries in it and +700 hp and it will demolish AMG’s ! Cars with that kind of power shouldn’t be powered, sheer with a combustion engine. It’s just wrong and against everything BMW stands for with their i cars.

      • Senne says:

        That’s just dreaming. But would be awesome ! xD
