2001 BMW 740il
Zoom icon


The BMW 7-Series has a long history of being a roomy, solid, sleek, and comfortable ride; the choice of the successful since its inception! The third generation 7-Series was built from 1994-2001 and retained classic 1990s BMW styling the whole way through. This particular example is a 740iL, which is the long-wheelbase version and essentially a small limo.

When sitting behind the wheel of this BMW, it is easy to understand why this would have been a logical choice for someone with the funds to afford it. Even if not being chauffeured, this car was the ideal candidate for someone in search of a practical, comfortable, no-frills (but still fancy) vehicle to match their personality. The ignition cylinder turns smoothly; there is no doubt when you have the car in the accessory position. Though currently not functional, the original BMW car phone still sits proudly atop the center console. The back seat has an enormous amount of legroom, and foot props that can be easily stowed under the front seats. Aside from some minor wear and sun damage, the interior is intact and with a little love could once again be truly classy.

With just under 80,000 actual miles, this is one of the lowest mileage examples currently available for sale. It would be tough to find one under 100,000 miles! This car is in overall excellent condition for the age and is a rust-free Florida vehicle. Thanks to the Florida climate, the body has been preserved but some of the plastic is showing its age as well as the clear coat around the trunk. Nonetheless, this is a straight example that has been maintained and driven sparingly.

The engine of this car runs dead quiet! Once it is up to temperature, you can hardly tell the car is running (which is impressive for any internal combustion vehicle!). Additionally, this BMW functions exactly as it should. Even the lighted door handles work! If you're looking for an enormous and affordable classy BMW, this modern classic has everything you could ask for (and there won't be a dozen others the same in the parking lot at work!).

All vehicles are being sold As Is, Where Is, with No Warranty, expressed, written or implied. All sales are final. It is the sole responsibility of the customer, and which we strongly encourage, to thoroughly inspect the vehicle personally or via 3rd party, to ensure satisfaction to the condition and value, prior to purchase. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be constructed as a warranty of any type.

Vehicle information is provided by the consignor (current owner) of the vehicle, and while we do perform a visual and safety inspection of the vehicle upon arrival, we can make no warranty, guarantee or representation regarding the accuracy, truth, or reliability of such information. Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership and its affiliates shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with a vehicle prior to the close of sale. Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
