2001 BMW 740i Sport

The E38 740i Sport is a favorite of ours here at GCFSB. When the photos of the new E65 and long wheelbase E66 7 series emerged, sales of E38 7 series actually increased, as people viewed the radical new design too much of a departure from what they were used to. Now, the E38 is a luxury car bargain, provided you aren’t fearful of what it takes to maintain one. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a 740i Sport in Royal Red, but it certainly is a nice departure from the usual blacks, silvers and grays that we see on larger German sedans. The chrome wheels are a bit too Hollywood for my tastes, but everything else about this E38 is scratching that executive car itch of mine.

2001 BMW 740i with Dinan upgrades. California owned 2001 BMW 740i in rare Royal Red on black leather with 83k miles. Mint condition, fully loaded, floor mats, tape, CD/AM/FM, car cover, Xenon lights, jet washers, M Package, records, new front tires, brand new front and rear brakes and rotors, all hoses and belts brand new, new radiator and extra key. It has a gorgeous color combination or rare Royal Red with black interior and is in near mind condition. The top is like new. This car has a 4.4 liter V8 powerful motor that is very tight, fast and smooth. Don’t miss this chance to own this rare beauty with low miles. I have owned this car for the past three years, bought it from a friend of mine and the car has been always serviced on time. Always been garage kept and the car will come with car cover. VIN# WBAGG834001DN87461

It would have been nice if the seller described in further detail exactly what Dinan upgrades this car has. From the pictures, it’s apparent this car has a Dinan cold air intake, but I’m curious whether this car might have a chip upgrade or other modifications. The asking price for this 740i is a bit high considering other E38s we’ve seen lately. The Imola Red 740i Sport that Nate featured earlier this month sold for $15,001 and had 93,000 miles. I’d suspect somewhere around $14,000 to $15,000 is all of the money for this car. While the E38s are still revered amongst the Bimmer faithful, prices haven’t moved all that much to warrant a premium on anything except very low mileage, showroom new examples.

  1. I like the color and sport package but the chrome wheels and the price kill the deal. There are just too many 2001 E38s out there to compromise.

  2. 10 thousand would be top dollar on this………..love the color and e38s but know of another royal red/black sport for sale with higher miles for 7000 right now…….

  3. I love these cars…. my favorite 7 series when they have that M Sport Package. As said above this one is grossly over priced. The real issue is they are OLD now and they are still $85k cars when you need to get parts and service. The barrier of entry is not the price its the service. They are not particularly good performers by todays standards and the MPG is a joke by today’s standards. The typical V6 Honda Accord makes as much power and nearly triples the MPG, yes I know its still a honda.

    Still a great looking car!
