Vilner’s Modified BMW 750i On Sale For $25,000

Remember Vilner’s attempt to bring the E38 7-Series intro the 21st century? Well, that exact project is looking for a new owner.

The third generation 7 Series remains a modern, competent car for its age, but actually it’s a big long in the tooth: it came out the same year when the first Sony Playstation console was released in Japan, and when the X-Files TV Show was a thing. Feel old yet?

Granted, the model pictured is the face-lifted variant, but even so, Bulgarian tuner Vilner decided to work its magic on the Bimmer’s appearance, just to make it “in tune” with the times.

Now the car boasts a fresh, crisp paint finish, DRLs incorporated into the fog halogens, a subtle rear wing mounted on the boot, 19-inch Z-Performance wheels, and, probably, standard BMW rims wrapped in winter tires (as seen in the pics). But as gallant and elegant the exterior looks, Vilner’s strongpoint is the highly customized, bespoke interiors.

Needless to say, this 7 Series features Vilner’s best craftsmanship, which includes elements adorned in Alcantara, grey-leather dressed dashboard, decorative white stitching on the doors and seats, black piano varnish elements, and blue accents throughout the interior, reminiscent of the new BMW i Series. The attention to details is so exquisite, that even the rear-view mirror is wrapped in Alcantara and the mechanisms of the seat belts in leather.

Now, the only elements stuck in the old era (apart from the overall shape) is the car’s 5.4-litre V12 mill and its, now quite old, 5-speed automatic gearbox. Still, the 322 hp and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft) of torque generated by the twelve cylinder under the hood is enough grunt to take the 1,995 kg car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.6 seconds and all the way to an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

So, if you think that Vilner’s project is worth $25,000 of your hard earned, you should check the original ad.
