    Will this be sold in the US? The article does not say.
    BMW has long offered a 6 cylinder 7-series option abroad.

    Think about it, guys. The 335i has had a 3.0 liter twin-turbo six since that engine's debut, despite the vehicle's badge indicating otherwise. BMW abandoned displacement-specific long ago! Apparently the names now designate what size a naturally aspirated engine would have to be to generate the same numbers.
    Now it seems Mercedes does the same, with the S400 Hybrid. Not a 4.0 liter engine, but definitely more ooomph than the 3.5 liter V6 (underhood) alone.
