The centenary flagship, based on the M760Li, 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 current 7 Series. Produced at BMW’s Dingolfing plant, the manufacturing process for the 100 units 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 saloon’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 cupholder located in the front area of the centre console boasts the inscription “1 of 100”.
With a focus on interior comfort, the 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. The floor covering and floor mats, safety belts and 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 comes in the same finish.
With a wealth of interior comfort and driving features, from new ConnectedDrive technology to the sumptuous Executive Lounge feature, this limited-edition limousine redefines luxury on the move.
Moving it is an M760Li xDrive V12 engine that provides stunning performance with exemplary refinement. With TwinPower Turbo technology, this 6592cc M Performance powerplant produces 610bhp and 800Nm. The output is 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 limousine accelerates from zero to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and on to a governed top speed of 250km/h.
Furthermore, Montblanc and BMW have teamed up to create a fountain pen that underscores the uniqueness of the M760Li xDrive V12 The Next 100 Years.
The “Montblanc for BMW” Centennial Fountain Pen follows the principles of the Maison Montblanc in terms of quality, styling and constant innovation. For more than 110 years now, the name Montblanc has been synonymous with writing culture and top-class workmanship. In collaboration with BMW’s design department, Montblanc has developed this unique fountain pen, which is limited to 100 pieces and handed to every owner of the BMW Individual M760Li xDrive V12 The Next 100 Years.
