The BMW 740Le is still somewhat of a novelty when it comes to large luxury saloons. It’s spacious, full of tech, reasonably fast, yet very fuel efficient.
Back when this car was first presented, BMW claimed it could drink as little as 2.1 liters/100 km (134.5 mpg UK), combined with some really low emissions (between 51 and 45g/km).
Yet, putting your foot down would convince its 326 PS (321 HP) hybrid powertrain to take you from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.5 seconds, which is pretty good considering the size, weight and amount of horsepower the car has.
As for this particular vehicle, a resident of the Bavarian automaker’s Abu Dhabi dealership, it’s wearing an M Sport kit, which does a good job at communicating the 7-Series’ dynamic intentions. Other mods include the 3D Design front spoiler, Alpina boot lid spoiler, carbon fiber mirror covers and 21″ M Performance wheels.
It’s also got a dual-tone leather interior, with wood inserts on the dashboard, door panels and center console. Put everything together and you’re undoubtedly looking at one of the world’s most luxurious and eco-friendly saloons.
