    Default BMW E38 - Elegance Personified

    I find it hard to put down in words, all the emotions that go through my mind and my heart when I set eyes on one of these ageless beauties! .........Simply spectacular, breath-taking, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping. A road presence that none compare to.

    A combination of a muscle car's mean looks, luxury of a limousine, instrument cluster of an aeroplane, power of an untamed beast!...

    This particular shape/series (e38) was built from year 1995-2001 with slight modifications in the exterior and tremendous modifications to the interior with the passage of time....

    Model Engine Power/Torque Years produced

    740i/740iL 4.0L M60B40 Petrol V8 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) / 400 N·m (295 lb·ft) 1995
    740i/740iL 4.4L M62B44 Petrol V8 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) / 420 N·m (310 lb·ft) 1996?€“1998
    740i/740iL 4.4L M62TUB44 Petrol V8 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) / 440 N·m (325 lb·ft) 1999?€“2001
    750iL 5.4L M73B54 Petrol V12 240 kW (326 PS; 322 hp) / 490 N·m (361 lb·ft) 1995?€“1997
    750iL 5.4L M73TUB54 Petrol V12 240 kW (326 PS; 322 hp) / 490 N·m (361 lb·ft) 1998?€“2001

    Features of the E38 7 Series included high-pressure headlight washers, auto-leveling xenon HID headlamps, power moonroof, a sound system with 14 speakers and four subwoofers as well as 6-disc CD changer, onboard satellite navigation and rain-sensing wipers. Other features included an automatic climate control system with separate controls for the driver and passenger, a three-position memory system for the driver?€™s seat, safety-belt height, new steering wheel and outside mirrors. Front-seat side airbags and a Head Protection System (HPS) were also standard. The car featured an all-leather interior with burl walnut trim. The continuous-motion Active Comfort Seat technology was introduced in 1998 to improve comfort and reduce fatigue for the driver and front passenger.

    When the E38 was phased out in 2001 to make way for the new E65, sales of E38s increased noticeably in the car's final months of production as people moved to buy the car before it was replaced. The E65's radical styling and iDrive was not initially well-received by consumers, so used E38s increased in value as demand increased. Also contributing to the E38's continued popularity was its appearance in several films such as Tomorrow Never Dies, The Transporter, and The Game. The E38 740i featured in the BMW Film Ambush, even though it was the only featured car in the series to be replaced the following year.

    I wonder why we dont see many around in Pakistan?!?... was it lack of awareness of this super car?!

    Back a couple of years ago (2007 I think), I saw a silver one in F-10 Markaz. I believe it was a 740i

    I wonder why we dont see many around in Pakistan?!?... was it lack of awareness of this super car?!
    wasn't a lack of awareness as such, rather more of an existence of a very favourable tax regime coupled with low buying power..
    What have you been grateful for today..?
