|BMW M70 engine|
Multiple V12 engines built by BMW since 1986, named the M70, M73, N73 or N74. … A series of sports cars run by BMW Motorsport known as the V12 LM and V12 LMR.
The V12 engine is currently used to power the current 760i xDrive, and it’s pretty great. It makes a buttery-smooth 577 horsepower (down from 602, due to emissions changes) and 590 pound-feet of torque. It’s everything you’d want in a giant luxo-barge, and apparently, BMW’s customers agree.
That’s unfortunate since the V12 is part of BMW’s history. Its elimination is motivated by increasingly higher emission standards compliance costs. As a result, the engine in the M760Li is BMW’s latest V12. It will therefore disappear in 2023, when the next generation of the 7 Series will arrive.

It is both expensive to build and produce a V12 engine, much more so than a V8. This cost is primarily due to the insane amount of complexity inherent in design of the V12. With 12 pistons and 48 valves, there are a ridiculous number of moving parts.
BMW M760i. The BMW M760i xDrive sports a starting MSRP of $157,800. It boasts a 600-horsepower twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine, an adaptive suspension, four-wheel steering, ventilated and massaging front seats, and heated and ventilated rear seats.
BMW is well known for its history of inline-six (straight-six) engines, a layout it continues to use to this day despite most other manufacturers switching to a V6 layout. The more common inline-four and V8 layouts are also produced by BMW, and at times the company has produced inline-three, V10 and V12 engines.
The high-performance X5 M has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that makes 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The X5 M accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds, and it has a top speed of 156 mph, according to BMW.
V12 engine has the benefit of running at lower RPM’s but the weight of the engine is greater compared to a V8. In the other hand V8 engines have a higher compression ratio and higher RPM’s. This is the main reason behind the faster speed of V8 engine.
Lamborghini has revealed the Aventador Ultimae, the final edition of the famous supercar. Its 6.5-litre V12 engine is capable of producing 770 hp of power output and 720 Nm of peak torque. Lamborghini developed the L539 V12 engine specially for the Aventador.

Impressive engineering work. Code named “The Tractorri“, a Lamborghini Gallardo’s engine, drivetrain, and interior was transplanted to a 2007 Mustang body. … The rear of the car was reworked with custom fabricated parts to imitate the Gallardo’s rear end to further add to the one-off design of the car.
A V24 engine is a 24-cylinder piston engine where two banks of twelve cylinders are arranged in a V configuration around a common crankshaft. The majority of V24 engines, however, have been “dual V12” engines where two separate V12 engines are placed in line with each other.
Packard Twin Six
Amongst the first production cars to use a V12 engine were the 1915 Packard Twin Six, the 1915 National V12 engine and the 1917 Weidely Pathfinder; all of which were built in the United States.
