217mph 7series BMW

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.

Reminds me of the B7 Alpina I drove in the BMW Race....err Drive for the Cure. You could feel the 550 ft/lbs of torque in it.
It's cool to see the local one here in town and think back to that drive. This stage two machine would be an autobahn beast.
