When talking about luxury barges the size of the BMW 7 Series, you find that the question of tuning them gets a lot more mixed responses than any other modification proposals.
Still, some people break through and showcase something quite like this, the BMW 750 Li with Tuningwerk, erm, tuning work done to it.
Basically they’ve done something that’s inherently German, added some less than impressive aesthetics package and extracted a whole lot more power from the engine.
The standard 4.4 liter turbocharged V8 engine pushes out little more than 400 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. Clearly tuners think it’s not enough and Tuningwerk offers two choices in this department.
You can either have a GT Edition 530 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque that gets to 62 in just 4.2 seconds and has an unrestricted top speed of 193mph.
Or, if you’re as power crazy as well, the Germans, you can have the same engine tuned up to produce 720 horsepower and 804 lb-ft of torque with the RS Edition.
This version of the BMW 750 Li can get from 0 to 62 in just 3.5 seconds and, at the top end, the speedometer will be showing 218 mph.
Other technical improvements from Tuningwerk has the BMW 750 Li lose about 120 kilograms courtesy of carbon fiber front, rear bumpers, sideskirts, lightweight 20 inch wheels, a new lighter exhaust and carbon ceramic brakes.
Pricing-wise the BMW 750 Li by Tuningwerk is pretty substantial is costs $230.800 in GT Edition and at least $269.000 for the bonkers RS Edition one.
