Uhhhhh because its the ultra-elite, executive class 7 series whose base price is $120K and the same block used by Rolls Royce

Exactly
It's called a flagship. There is no intent on making a profit on these models. Look at the Veyron, for every model made and sold VW loses money. They gain market share by building an image, not cutting costs on the top series.

+1 for no V12 on new 7
