Regarded by many as being the high-water mark of BMW’s range-topping 7-Series, the E38 generation combined all the progress and technological improvements of a late nineties car with classically handsome, pre-Bangle BMW styling. Today exceptional examples are sought by those who know that it just didn’t get any better.
Whilst six and eight cylinder cars sold in abundance, the long wheelbase V12 750iL represented BMW’s ultimate expression of luxury and performance, squaring up to Mercedes’ S600 on every level.
Built on June 16th 2000, it is finished in Titan Silver metallic with Anthracite Grey Ambiente Leather. It is typically highly specified for a 750iL, the full list is detailed below.
The example we have here is undoubtedly the finest that it would be possible to find, having covered just 25,000 miles from new in a dry climate and always garaged. As a result, this is a car that still looks and feels new throughout. The paintwork is entirely original and unmarked, the condition of the underside is best described as being akin to a six month old car. The interior is perfect and still smells new.
This E38 has been in the hands of a particularly fastidious collector for the last three years, who has had the car looked after by the BMW main dealer Barons Hindhead, who also MoT’d the car with no advisories. Recently the car has had new, genuine BMW batteries and five new Continental tyres, along with anything required to ensure the car remains in ‘as new’ condition.
If you are looking to acquire the best example that can be found of the ultimate E38, then this 750iL represents a unique opportunity. Right-hand drive cars with this mileage and condition are nigh-on impossible to find. Astounding value for money for such an incredible machine.
