BMW 7 Series Gets Centennial Special Edition with a Really Long Name

BMW has put together a limited-production 7 Series package to help the company celebrate its hundredth year in business.

Only 100 examples of the special edition 7 Series will be built, while just five of them will be available in the U.S.

Interested buyers can get a “The Next 100 Years” model in three different variants in world markets, but only one is coming to the U.S.: the top-trim BMW Individual M760Li xDrive Model V12 Excellence The Next 100 Years with a 610-hp V12. BMW says that the car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

A centennial blue metallic paint is used for the exterior of the car while the 20-inch wheels are specially designed for the special edition. Inside, Merino leather wraps nearly every surface, while piano black trim and unique badging throughout give it an elegant feel. A custom Montblac fountain pen can also be found in every model, designed specifically for this special edition.

To help the big car handle, it is fit with an air suspension setup, while a new adaptive drive mode is available which will tailor the car’s setting to your current driving style and planned route. Gesture control is also available in the new 7 Series model, offered for the first time by BMW. Of course the 7 Series is fit with many semi-autonomous driving aides along traffic jam assist which full controls the car in stop-and-go traffic.

The special edition model will be available by the end of 2016, though pricing was not made available.
