What Th...? What's With This Bimmer's Stinkin' Badges?

Either someone's having, as they say on the continent, a bit of a laugh, or BMW's got some manner of 7.0-liter W12 in the works to counter rival VW's twin-sixey. Sure, it's most likely the former, but whoever put this together is a master of subtle automotive jokes — easily lost on 99% of motorists. Sir, whoever you are, you win the something something something award for car comedy.

Is this 770Li real or badge-engineered? [PistonHeads]
