The BMW E38 is the third generation of the BMW 7 Series, which was produced from April 1994 to 2001. It replaced the E32 and was available with straight-six, V8 and V12 petrol and straight-six and diesel engines. The E38 was the first car available with curtain airbags. It was also the first European car to offer satellite navigation and the first BMW to offer an in-built television. Safety features include ASC+T traction control, headlight washers, auto-levelling low beam Xenon HID headlamps. Side tubular airbags (head protection system) were fitted as standard equipment. Active comfort seats were introduced in 1998, to improve comfort and reduce fatigue for the driver and front passenger. This system used two fluid filled bladders which alternate in height. Other equipment includes electronic damper control (EDC III), power moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, dual zone climate control, electric driver's seat adjustment and electric steering wheel adjustment. Double glazed windows were available (dual pane glass). Break resistant laminated security glass was also available, which is known to delaminate. The sport package included a sport steering wheel, sports seats, sports suspension, 'shadowline' exterior trim and unique wood trim for the interior. Some sports models also included a shorter differential ratio and higher stall speed for the torque converter.
This one owner from new, left hand drive, example is presented in black with a grey leather interior. It comes with many original factory luxury fittings, including electric front seats, electric windows, air conditioning and built in original telephone. The car is presented with a full service history, all books and two sets of keys and we are informed, it is very good running order with its general condition being good also. A wonderful luxury saloon powered by the smooth V12 six-litre engine and lavished in luxury, this would be great to tour Europe or indeed enjoy or our U.K. roads.
