BMW E38 750iL /// Superb Throughout /// Just 51k Miles

FOR SALE: Just 51k miles from new, extremely well spec’d in Cosmos Black with Sand Beige leather.
Cosmos Black Metallic paintwork, Sand Beige Montana leather, 5-speed Steptronic transmission, Heated and electrically-adjustable front seats with driver’s seat memory, Active front seats, Heated and electrically-adjustable rear seats, Rear Seat Package, Fold-down rear picnic tables, Electric tilt and slide glass sunroof, Polished burr walnut inlays, Chrome Line interior trim, M multifunction leather steering wheel, Front and rear parking sensors (PDC), Air conditioning, Rear monitor, Navigation system with OBM and TV, Front central armrest, Front and rear telephone handsets, 6 disc CD changer, Professional HiFi system, Electric steering column adjustment, Double glazing, Electric rear sunblind, Rear window sunblinds, Auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, Headlamp washer system, Xenon headlights, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Servotronic, Self-levelling rear axle, Electronic Damper Control (EDC), Spare keys.
With its elegant, carefully considered lines it’s easy to see why the E38 is widely regarded as the pinnacle of 7-Series design. This particular example looks fantastic in Cosmos Black Metallic, the dark paintwork perfectly offset by a generous helping of gleaming chrome trim to the bumpers, window surrounds, and kidney grille. The body presents in excellent condition with a deep shine and uniform colour all round, the only real negatives to report being some light frontal stone chips and a handful of discreetly touched-in marks. The brightwork remains in equally fine order, and there are no scuffs or scrapes to any of the plastic bumper inserts.
The sumptuous E38 interior is awash with soft Montana leather and enough creature comforts to rival even the most modern luxury saloons. The upholstery is still notably supple, and a deep factory texture can be felt throughout. The seats are all heated and electrically-adjustable, including at the rear where passengers are additionally treated to plentiful legroom, fold-down tray tables, and separate climatic AC; for optimal comfort the passenger-side front seat can also be adjusted via controls in the rear armrest.
The cabin is laced with glossy walnut inlays and subtle Chrome Line trim accenting the gearshift and door speakers, etc. Looking closer, commonly worn items such as the multifunction M steering wheel and satnav screen retain a superb factory-fresh appearance, and in the footwells the pale carpets are still well protected by a full set of original BMW overmats. The AC is also blowing icy cold following a recent re-gas.
The engine bay is exceptionally well presented with no signs of any damage or previous poor repair to speak of. The 5.4-litre M73 V12 really is the pick of the bunch, offering effortless silky-smooth driving while still packing a punch when you need to get a shift on. The 5-speed automatic gearbox is a perfect match for the 750iL with almost undetectable gear changes. All in all, a real driving treat.
This superb example is hardly run in with only 51k miles on the clock. The last service was carried out in January 2021, and since arriving with us the car has been fully inspected for the new keeper’s peace of mind.
The E38 sits on its original 18-inch multi-spoke alloys, all in excellent condition. They are shod in a matching set of Dunlop tyres, each with ample tread left. The brakes have also been checked and remain in fine operational condition, bringing the car to a stop quickly and in a straight line.
This highly specified, low mileage V12 E38 was first registered in October 2000. It has now driven just 51k miles in the hands of only 3 registered keepers. The History File is complete with a raft of maintenance invoices, past MOT certificates, and a set of spare keys. The service booklet has unfortunately been mislaid, however the selection of invoices and printouts from BMW within the accompanying documentation show the car to have been well maintained. The last service was carried in January 2021 at 50,850 miles. Most recently, the car has just returned from a full mechanical inspection, the only items requiring attention being a worn steering idler and the air conditioning not blowing fully cold, both of which have now been rectified.
