The legendary white BMW 740i goes under the hammerFebruary 18, 2019
One of the most beautiful cars in the history of the company put up on the online auction Bring A Trailer. The unique BMW was estimated at $ 40,000.
The factory BMW 7 Series E38 was never released in a sports modification, but the last owner decided to correct this omission and independently modify the model. Her main secret is to lurk under the hood.
The car was purchased in 2016 and for a short period of time the car owner significantly transformed it. Instead of the native 4.4-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, he installed a 4.9-liter S62 V8 from the BMW M5 E39 sedan. The power of such a power unit is 400 horses and allowed the M5 to reach 100 km/h in almost five seconds.
But this engine has undergone refinement. For example, improved nozzles and a more efficient mechanical ESS supercharger were installed on it. Due to this, the estimated power of the “boomer” can be from 450 to 500 hp. In a couple of this engine set 6-speed manual transmission. The M5 also got a modified rear differential.
In addition, the car boasts Bilstein shock absorbers, a modified rear subframe, UUC stabilizers, axles from the 750i and Brembo brake system. In the cabin, of course, appeared the front panel and the steering wheel of the M-Series. The mileage of the 740i being sold is 86,180 km.
Earlier, the 1987 racing release Ferrari F40 LM was sold at Sotheby’s for 4.3 million euros.
