Styled in-house by Boyke Boyer, BMW’s third generation (E38) 7-Series is widely regarded as its best looking to date. Introduced in 1994, the newcomer was the first production car to feature curtain airbags. Notably more engaging to drive than its Audi and Mercedes-Benz rivals, the E38’s popularity was boosted by starring roles in ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ (with Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond), ‘The Transporter’, ‘Enemy of the State’, ‘The Game’ and ‘Transformers’ etc. The E38 was the first car available with curtain airbags. It was also the first European car to offer satellite navigation and the first BMW to offer an in-built television. Other equipment includes electronic damper control, power sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, electric driver's seat adjustment, and electric steering wheel adjustment.
Manufactured in 1998, the 740i offered was supplied new to the United Kingdom being first registered on the 29th of June that year. Fitted with the naturally-aspirated, 4.4-litre, 32v quad-cam V8 engine producing 282bhp and offering 0-62mph in 7.0 seconds with a top seed of 155mph, it is allied to the automatic transmission. Finished in Orient Blue with Sand Beige Nappa leather interior upholstery, the BMW was specified from the factory with electric memory seats, ‘fine wood trim’, six-CD-Player, a Hi-Fi speaker system, air-conditioning, SatNav, and car phone installation. Having had just two former keepers from new, the BMW has covered a mere 56,800 miles from new. Last serviced at 56,713 miles in June 2023 by a BMW Specialist, the 7-series is due to be driven to the sale. Supplied with its original book pack, service booklet, and Owners Manuals, an MOT certificate until June 2024 and a current V5C document, the 740i is rated as 'excellent' throughout by the vendor.
