The Appeal

The BMW 740i E38 was effectively the executive car of choice for the discerning driver across its six years on the market. It was a car where everything was just right - from the styling, to the luxuries in the cabin, to the top-notch performance - and has since become a beloved jewel in the crown of the BMW repertoire.

This particular example, with its sonorous 4.4-litre V8 engine, was originally based in Japan - and now comes to us in fine fettle. With a respectably low mileage of only 81,586km on the odometer and a classic livery of Oxford Green, it's a superb example of a highly beloved model - and is still more than practical as a daily driver, too.
