Take one BMW 7 Series, hand it over to Germany's TuningWerk, ask for the second-stage tune that the company characterizes as "a little revitalization," and the sedan you get back will top out at 720 horsepower, 803 pound-feet and 217 miles per hour.

The super stormer gets bigger, lighter brakes, a new sound system, a sport exhaust, and a weight-loss totaling 264 pounds, The eight-speed transmission is swapped for a beefier unit with either five or six speeds. It all makes getting from zero to 62 mph a minor inconvenience, taking but 3.5 seconds.

If all that's too much – and at €198,000 ($274,982 U.S.) it may be – you can hold steady at the Stage One tune that raises the game to "just" 530 hp and 546 lb-ft. There's more info in the presser after the jump.

WHEN COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE GO HAND IN HAND
BMW NR 7s Long Version with 720 HP


There is no doubt that 7 Series is the BMW absolute and unconditional leader, even when it comes in the Long Version. Needless to say, when the Bavarian-based TUNINGWERK company from Puchheim in Munich area tries its hand at this supercar, we can most definitely say it is a very special event.

Engine power – that is, in two power amplifier stages – is a top priority for this well-established blue-and-white bannered "tuning smithery". We are talking here first and foremost about greater power augmentation. After a little revitalization at TUNINGWERK the 7 Series is going by the NR 7s nickname and features almost breathtaking power specifications. Quite obviously, that this upgrade was aimed at building up horsepower. It produces 720 BHP with the maximum torque of 1,090 Nm. The flat-out is reached at 350 km/hr as well as the really "smooth" acceleration from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 3.5 seconds with the weight of roughly 2 tons seem very convincing.

Equipped with a 5- or 6-gear sport automatic transmission, the unique CarbonCeramic brake system featuring 396 mm ceramic brake disks for the front axle and only slightly smaller ones for the back axle saves about 70 kg revolving mass in a streamlined teamwork with wheel disks and tyres. TUNINGWERK shook off another 50 kg (totalof 120 kg) without compromising the absolutely fully equipped Fonds Entertainment System! The weight reduction was achieved by means of the lightweight design sports exhaust system, as well as CarbonHybrid car front and body sills. With the gas tank only half full the Long Version F02 weighs 2,030 kg and will cost its proud owner 198,000 euros.

The "small-scale" power augmentation will also make sense bringing forward such advantages as 530 HP with maximum torque of 740 Nm, maximum speed of 310 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. The vehicle costs 169,800 euros with a 6-gear sport automatic transmission (also available with all-wheel drive) and a HighPerformance steel brake system.

You'll be drooling when you browse through technical highlights of NR 7s. As Oscar Wilde said, I am always satisfied with the best.

      Simple, clean and insanely fast...and they dropped the weight of the car. Good job.

      264 lbs shaved off and a tuner who realizes you don't need an 8-speed transmission? Neat.

      275 grand just for the kit? Or does that include the car?

      Wow, over $270k for this. Wonder if it comes with a lifetime warrenty. I'll just stick with the CTS-V for now. Who needs to go 217 mph anyway!

      Nother useless auto like the Veyron, yup goes 217 mph for about 15 min when the gas tank is empty, jeez does anyone really need to get anywhere that quick, jeez take a high speed train or a jet, better yet wait till they can beam you anywhere like in Star Trek.

        99.9999% of the cars built are useless. Most people don't need more than one or two seats. No one needs more than a 2 or 3 cylinder motor. In some ares with public transportation no one needs a car. If the whole world were to guy by just what we need there would be no such things as computers, currency, fast food, automobiles, telephones, etc. You also just made a useless post and I'm making a useless reply. Questions?

        Depends what you mean by "need". May be nobody really needs more than an Aveo.

      I'll take a CTS-V sedan for much, much, MUCH cheaper, and have an engine in it that can make ridiculous power while being worked on by shadetree mechanics.

        7 series does not compete with ctsv. CTSV is little toy compare to 7 series.
