With a wheelbase of 115 the E38 7-Series was a massive, imposing automobile. Despite its size and limousine luxury, like all BMWs, it benefited from M-Power technology and had the heart of a true sports sedan as well. Equipped with the desirable “Sport Package” (introduced in 1999), the 7-Series came with 18-inch “M” wheels with performance tires (wider at the rear), a Steptronic transmission, sport suspension, contoured sport seats, Shadowline exterior trim, Vavona redwood interior trim and a sport steering wheel. The 4.4-liter V8 has enough power to push the 740 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds – an extraordinary time for a two-ton car!
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in June of 2010 at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, San Diego, California.
282 bhp, 4.4-liter 32-valve V8 engine, Steptronic automatic transmission with manual mode, four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 115".
