With crisp, elegant lines penned by Boyke Boyer, the E38-generation of BMW's 7 Series gained Hollywood fame through appearances in the Bond and Transporter film franchises. It was a seriously high-tech car at the time of its launch in 1995 - the first European car with satellite navigation; the first car with curtain airbags; the first BMW with a built-in television!

The ultimate E38 to have is the 750iL, powered by the marque's creamy-smooth M73B54 5.4L V12 engine that delivered 240kW and 490Nm of torque, coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission.
