Lot 003: BMW 730i SE Automatic

Classic Car, Motorcycle & Automobilia, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (24 June 2009)

The flagship saloon of the BMW range, the 7-Series was launched in 1977 and has gone through five generations to date. The car you see here is a second generation E32 model, available from 1987 to 1995. It is powered by a creamy smooth straight-six 3-litre engine that produces 199bhp and, in four-speed automatic form, can propel the car to 60mph in 10 seconds on its way to a top speed of 140mph.

First registered in April 1992, this 7-Series has clearly led a very cosseted life and it is hard to believe that it is now 17 years old and has covered some 115,000 miles. In superb condition throughout, it has been serviced no less than 21 times to date, all at BMW main agents, which equates to an average service interval of just 5,500 miles.

A Special Equipment model, it is packed with every conceivable option including: full grey leather trim; electric seats; burr walnut inlays; interior lighting pack; automatic air conditioning; Kenwood hi-fi system; on-board computer; electric steel sunroof; servotronic system; cross-spoke alloy wheels and headlamp wash system. It is also fitted with a Tracker anti-theft satellite system but the new owner will have to subscribe to have this activated.

Due to have a fresh MOT before the sale, it is said to drive perfectly and is only being sold because the owner has now upgraded to a newer BMW 740i. Altogether a huge amount of car for a very small amount of money!
