BMW's V12 won't stick around for long

By Faiming_low on 18 Jun 2019 in Engine

Attached Image BMW reckons its large twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 will not have much of a future soon as emission regulations round the world get tougher by the day.

In an interview with Autoblog, BMW M Chief Executive Markus Flasch has been quoted saying that the engine, which sees action in the 760Li, will not be existing in another model in the foreseeable future.

This is interesting as the flagship 602bhp 7 Series is reported to be selling well in the Middle East and China. In fact, the BMW says that it has been producing the engine as fast as it can ever since the M760Li was introduced, confirming that there is demand for such a powertrain.

Meanwhile, Ferrari and Lamborghini vow to keep their V12 engines with help of hybridisation.
