The BMW 7-Series is designed for luxury first and power second, but German tuner, TuningWerk, has decided to change up BMW ’s priorities just a bit. Well actually, a whole lot. TuningWerk’s new package for the 750Li luxury sedan increases the 4.4-liter turbocharged V8’s output to a total of 720 HP, while top speed has been bumped up to 223 mph. There is also a milder version available for those that can’t handle the extra push.
The new 720 HP and 803 lb-ft found in the top kit can sprint the Beamer from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds before the Carbon Ceramic brake system slows it to a halt. This performance is facilitated by the weight reduction options chosen by TuningWerk. The firm reduced the 7-Series’ weight by 264 lbs thanks to a lightweight design sports exhaust system and front and body sills made out of a combination of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials. The kit, car included, costs 198,000 euros or about $270,000 at the current exchange rates.
If the thought of being carried by 720 HP is too much to handle, TuningWerk has also released a "small-scale" version that will boost output to 530 HP and 545 lbs-ft, up from the standard 362 HP and 360 lb-ft of torque. This version will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 192 mph. It will set you back 169,800 euro or about $230,000 at the current exchange rates.
