    BMW V12 Q?

    Alright this is probably a really stupid question but i'm going to ask anyway. Is it possible to get a BMW v12 that they use in the mclaren? I just think that if i got the mclaren repica then i definetly want to at least try to get the engine. What differ's from the BMW v12 mclaren engine to say a 7 or 8 series v12? could a 7 or 8 series possibly be modifyed? I no this will cost probably quit a bit, so dont post your an idiot its to expensive or why do you want to do that? please just anwser the Q and give any feedback you can, dont post reasons why not to do this. thank you

    The simple answer, if you have the budget to get the V12 from any BMW platform and also the transmision/drivetrain that would work for your application, then by all means, get it. And also, any engine is "upgradeable", no matter what its current state of tune is. Its just a matter of $$.
