For car connoisseurs, this will be intriguing news: BMW Japan infuses the performance of an M series and the luxurious feel of a 7 series to offer the most bang for your buck with the limited edition 7 series V-12 Bi Turbo.

Let's start with the interior. Seats are fine Nappa-leathered, manufactured with piano lacquer technology. Everything including the iDrive controller, AC vents and other levers have a ceramic finish. It is equipped with Bang and Olufsen's accredited sound system -- delivering 16 channel sound through 16 surround-sound speakers.

Under the hood, its engine is powered by a 6.0 liter V-12 Twin turbo with double VANOS technology delivering 554 HP. It glides on 21-inch V-spoke-styled alloys, which completes the aerodynamic package of the M series influence. The BMW 7 series V12 Bi-Turbo will be sold in limited quantities until the end of this summer in Japan only. It is up for grabs for roughly $226,000.
