|Odometer reading||114,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,824|
The fifth generation of the BMW 7 Series consists of the BMW F01 (saloon version) and BMW F02 (long-wheelbase saloon version). The F01/F02 generation was produced from 2008 to 2015.
The F01 was the first BMW vehicle to be available with a hybrid drivetrain, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a turbocharged V12 engine. It was the second 7 Series to be available with a turbocharged petrol engine (the first being the European E23 745i), and all-wheel drive (xDrive). The car's exterior was designed by Lebanese automotive designer Karim Habib. The styling retained some elements from its E65 7 Series predecessor but was a less controversial approach. The headlamps were reminiscent to the E65 but were smaller and sleeker. The car incorporated a wider and bigger kidney grille that went deeper into the front apron for a more aggressive appearance. The car was first revealed to the public in the Red Square in Moscow (Russia) on 8th July 2008. Other launch events included the Paris Motor Show in October and the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November.
This nice example of this German luxury saloon is presented in metallic grey with cream leather.
