Marking the 100th anniversary year of BMW, the BMW Individual 7 Series THE NEXT 100 YEARS - a centenary edition of the luxury saloon designed by BMW Individual - is due to celebrate its world premiere this year. Limited to 100 models worldwide and combined with the BMW Individual M760Li xDrive V12 THE NEXT 100 YEARS engine, it stands in an exclusive class of its own.


Exterior Design

Highlighting the exterior is a Centennial Blue metallic paint; a colour exclusive to the 100 centennial models, while the forged 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design come in a bi-colour Silver/Ferric Grey.

Interior Design

On the B Pillars, interior strips above the glove compartment and on the front and rear headrests are handcrafted signets that bear the lettering "THE NEXT 100 YEARS", and the cup holder cover bears the inscription "1 of 100".

The central element is the soft BMW Individual fine-grain Merino full leather trim in Smoke White with black accents, providing unmatched comfort to the driver and passengers. Also in Smoke White are the Alcantara floor covering and floor mats, safety belts and BMW Individual headliner. Providing a contrast are the BMW Individual interior strips in Piano Finish Black and a BMW Individual leather steering wheel with fine-wood applications in the same finish.

The addition of the highly exclusive BMW Individual M760Li xDrive V12 THE NEXT 100 YEARS engine - a 6.6-litre, V12 power unit featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology - allows the car to sprint from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top governed speed of 155mph.

The all-wheel BMW xDrive system provides supreme traction, optimised directional stability and enhanced dynamics when cornering at high speeds, due to its electronically controlled, variable and constant on-demand power distribution between the front and rear wheels.

"Montblanc for BMW" Centennial Fountain Pen

Every owner of the BMW Individual 7 Series THE NEXT 100 YEARS will receive a “Montblanc for BMW” Centennial Fountain Pen; a combined creation from the visionary minds of BMW and Montblanc designers. Also limited to 100 in number, the pens have been constructed with the same colour and design elements as that of the car itself. The pen shares the same Centennial Blue metallic exterior, as well an engraving on the rhodium-plated AU750 Gold Montblanc nib of the backstitching found on the BMW Individual Merino leather seats. The surface of the pen is also reminiscent of the quilted seat surfaces in a woven look featured by the Centennial model.

Montblanc was founded in 1906 and has grown to become one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-quality writing tools and other luxury accessories. Sharing the same tradition, quality and craftsmanship passions of BMW, a partnership was formed in the autumn of 2015 whereby "Montblanc for BMW" was established; a selection of accessories that make perfect companions for the 7 Series such as bags, passport cases, pens and more.
