BMW Remembers the Second-Generation 7-Series E32

Following the official video remembering the first-generation 7-Series, the E23, BMW has released another short film that presents its successor, the 7-Series E32. Launched in 1987, the-second generation of the flagship sedan is one of the most recognizable BMWs ever made.

Timeless design, luxury features and powerful engines were the most important attributes of the 7-Series E32. Hans Kerschbaum was involved in the development, first as a designer and later as head of aerodynamics. Many of his ideas were adopted on the production car, including the wide C-pillar or the rear side window with a raised edge for easy access into the interior.

The second-generation BMW 7-Series is also known for a range of premieres for the brand, such as the now typical L-shaped rear lights, the first production V12 engine in a BMW automobile (in the 750i and 750iL), the first long-wheelbase version (750iL) plus optional extras such as integrated telephone and a…fax machine, a wine cooler, traction control system and double glazing, among others.

The 7-Series E32 was initially available with inline six-cylinder gasoline engines (730i and 735i), followed by the 300PS/295hp V12 version (750i) shortly after launch and two V8 units in 1992 (730i V8 and 740i). Interestingly, 6-cylinder models were offered with a narrow kidney grille, while V8 and V12 models had a wide grille.
