Long and lovely

The E32 BMW 7 Series is the second generation of one of the most notable Germanic luxury saloon cars ever built.

Released in June of 1986, the E32 replaced the outgoing E23 7 Series, and stayed in production until April of 1994.

The E32 brought with it many significant changes compared to its predecessor, including Electronic Damper Control, double-glazed glass, xenon headlights, dual-zone climate control and, for the first time, the option of a long-wheelbase model.

In addition, the E32 7 Series was the first BMW to be launched with a limited top speed of 250km/h.

Power was originally derived from a range of inline six-cylinder engines or a 5.0lt V12, however, in 1992 BMW also made the M60 V8 engine available as an option for the E32.

These motors sent drive to the E32’s rear wheels via either a four or five-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission.

This particular E32 is a 1993 740iL, which means that this is a long-wheelbase model, and also comes equipped with the V8 and automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has travelled an original 148,672 kilometres from new and, judging from the photos, the 7 Series appears to be in good, original condition.

The E32 740iL is $18,750 and anyone interested in this Germanic luxury saloon car can view the full listing here
