Along with the usual release detailing the all-new 2016 7-Series, BMW has also dropped some videos and photos of the previous generation models.
I’m sure that after looking at all the photos and videos each of you will have a favorite, but for me the one that ticks all the boxes is the third-generation BMW 7-Series, the one codenamed E38.
Maybe it’s because the E38 was gracing the covers of car magazines when I was a kid or maybe its classy and timeless design has to do something with it. What is certain is that the E38 was the first 7-Series that hid the two pairs of round headlights behind a glass, a feature that remains to this day.
But the BMW 7-Series E38 was even more significant from a technological point of view. It was the first 7er available with a diesel engine (in Europe) and an automatic transmission, as well as the first 7-Series available with a satellite navigation system.
I’m sure many of you have different opinions, so make up your mind by checking out the photo gallery posted below and the videos – there’s a playlist button on the top left corner which allows you to select between videos.
