Each daytime running lamp on the BMW 750i has the quality of laser-cut glass shaped like a question mark laid on its side, replete with tiny, pinstripe-like decorative etchings on their outer surfaces. These etchings are almost invisible with the lights off, but with the lights on at night, they gleam like diamond cufflinks. Those pinstripe etchings would probably convey more than enough sophistication by themselves to help the 7-series fulfill its flagship responsibilities within the BMW sedan family, but designers went one small step further with a tasteful band of angled hashmarks striking through those pinstripes, adding an extra dash of formality.
This may seem like the definition of minutiae, but cars like the 7-series trade on such details, and precision craftsmanship—especially in places people don’t usually expect—is what we look for when evaluating luxury cars. Other areas where the 7-series shows its flagship status: the beautifully quilted stitch patterns on the upper seats, the wood trim that wraps over the sides of the center console instead of covering only the top, and the optional Sky Lounge sunroof with details that illuminate at night in a color coordinating to the chosen ambient-lighting selection and much much more extras to discover!
The 750i has a 445-hp twin-turbo V-8 churning up 480 lb-ft of torque under its long, elegantly contoured hood, but in this case, power is not there for fun—it is there for escaping the paparazzi 🙂 .
The specific car will be soon at our showroom ready for inspection and test drive.
