The dumbest longest car name

Are you surprised it's a BMW?

This came from the Jalopnik thread on the Porsche wagon, but it's worth highlighting:

BMW Individual M760Li xDrive Model V12 Excellence THE NEXT 100 YEARS.

That's literally the name of the car. That whole thing. All of it.

Fascinating? Really?

Makes me even less interested in ever buying another BMW.

I hadn't read the comments (where you uncovered this gem). The article proper was about:

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

Ugh. Other than an M2 or M3 I have zero interest in BMW's. Once they inevitably kill the manual, that will be the end for me.

That sounds like a name the Chinese would give to a car. Or Donald Trump. Not sure.
