While BMW does not believe in the future of V12 engines, the fact that its current 6.0-liter engine will last until at least 2023 has generated rumors that the X7 M60i will be at the top of its range of SUVs.

For the first time, the likelihood that the current generation of the X7 will receive the most powerful twin-turbocharged V12 M760Li was discussed at the beginning of 2018, even long before the debut of the new X7. However, on the Bimmer Post forum, recently there was something that when connecting the SUV to the ECU speaks of the X7 M60i model.

A member of the jokinawa forum says they were looking for encoding options and found a logo for the X7 M60i. This logo was then uploaded to the digital instrument cluster, and the image you see was captured. This, of course, seems to be quite correct, and if BMW started to create a logo, then there is a chance that it is going to release such an option on the market.

The M760Li’s powerful 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine delivers 592 hp. and 800 Nm of torque, and these figures will remain unchanged for an alternative to an SUV.

Interestingly, BMW X7 buyers looking for maximum performance will get not only the X7 M60i. In recent months, Alpina has worked hard to create its own version of the X7 and may present the model before the end of the year. This model, which is expected to be called the XB7, will use the same 4.4-liter Twin-Turbo V8 as the 2020 B7 with 600 hp. and a torque of 800 Nm.
