Not that we’re petty or anything but you’d think the folks who are rich enough to own a BMW 7 Series have got things going their own way without the Bavarians actually encouraging them.
Unfortunately for our spite, that’s exactly what’s happening. BMW is cooking up two new options for the folks who will be driving the best handling limousine out there.
It’s not little stuff either, it’s two new engines, one of which comes with some extra performance aiding tricks.
We can take some comfort in the fact that the first of these engines is actually aimed at making the F01 BMW 7 Series less expensive, more fuel efficient and generally more affordable.
That’s what BMW are calling the 728i. The name is a bit of a giveaway as it tells us that it will share the N20 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo four pot of the 328i.
In order to give it some more punch or more fuel economy depending on the conditions, BMW will use a hybrid system as well.
The other option is a much more exciting vehicle, it’s the M750i. Therefore it will be a sportier version of the mid-level V8 powered 7 Series.
You just know that the 4.4 liter TwinTurbo powerplant will be tweaked to produce some 450 or so horsepower and that the chassis will also receive some tweaks in order to make best use of that grunt.
It must be nice to have the opportunity to buy something like this, I mean really nice. Rumor has it that these choices will be available as early as next year.
