The Bavarians found another use 12-cylinder engine, which was going to give up.
The story is reminiscent of a digital detective. A while back BMW said that in three years will be extremely difficult to keep the 12-cylinder engine in the engine range is pressure from environmentalists on the one hand and high cost of upgrading the V12 on the other. However, portal users BimmerPost almost by accident found that during these three years, the Bavarians can submit a “farewell” new.
Delving into the depths of the inflight entertainment system of your BMW X7 40i, a user with the nickname jokinawa found them in an unusual version of the design of digital dashboard: it appeared the unprecedented logo M60i in the corporate colors of “units M”. However, BMW never stated that it will release such a version has never leaked even a hint of a rumor.
However, given that the M60i traces have been discovered in the software of the BMW X7, it is safe to say that the Bavarians have at least been thinking about how to implement the crossover of the 12-cylinder engine and at least went through several stages of training. Apparently, assumes that the crossover matched the same V12 engine that is installed on the sedan seventh series. For a displacement of 6.6 liters, it develops 609 HP and 800 Nm and scatters seven to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
Strictly speaking, the appearance of the BMW xDrive X7 M60i can be considered almost inevitable: on the one hand, the intention to provide the V12’s large crossover already seems to be declared in the Mercedes Benz, on the other – not far off the appearance of “charged” version of the Bavarian coupe from Atelier Alpina.
