Lot 032: BMW 735i SE

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (18 July 2012)

One of two E23 BMW 7 Series saloons in our sale today, this Polaris Silver example dates from 1985 and has the 3.5-litre straight-six engine that was uprated in 1982 with Motronic fuel injection increasing power to 215bhp and torque to 224 ft/lb. It has had just four owners from new (the first two being father and son) and has only covered 69,000 miles with many old MOTs and service invoices to warrant the mileage. Options fitted to the car include: electric glass tilt and slide sunroof; electric windows/mirrors; central locking; 4-speed switchable automatic gearbox; ABS; factory rear window blind; air-conditioning; rear boot spoiler and fully electric front seats. The rear armrest still has the original BMW first aid kit and the tool-holder in the boot is complete. Recent expenditure includes a service in November 2011 which included 5 new tyres, refurbished wheels, brake disc and pads to front and rear, new rear springs, viscous fan clutch, front pull rods and NOS exhaust system all at a cost of 2,500. The interior is in beautifully soft dark blue leather with excellent carpets, showing the care that has been lavished on the vehicle throughout it's life. MOTd and taxed until the end of November, the car is said to drive beautifully and has the ability to cross continents with comfort and ease.
