You're looking at the highest-mileage V12-powered vehicle listed for sale on Autotrader. It's a 1993 BMW 750iL, and it's covered just under 182,000 miles since it was sold new. Naturally, the engine has been rebuilt -- but that's pretty much what you'd expect from a 25-year-old V12-powered BMW, right?

This 750iL is offered for sale by a private seller in Minneapolis, and it's listed for $6,000. The condition seems unusually nice, despite the mileage; the body looks fine, with some light rust spots here and there, and the interior appears to have held up well, despite the age and miles. More importantly, the V12 was recently rebuilt, with a long list of new parts detailed by the seller in the ad -- no surprise, given the high cost of ownership for V12-powered vehicles.

As for the history on this 750iL, the private seller says it was originally a BMW corporate car before the second owner purchased it in 1994. That second owner had the car all the way until 2015, adding roughly 175,000 miles over that time -- and taking good care of it. The current owner, the third, has had the 750iL ever since and notes a long list of new features (and working parts) in the ad.

Although a high-mileage V12 might not be the most appealing car if you're looking for something practical and economical, you've got to admit there's some appeal here: both in owning a V12, and in seeing just how much life is left in this 750iL.
