BMW Looks Back at the Second-Generation 7 Series [Video]
Launched in 1987 and built through 1994, the second-generation 7 Series was developed by Hans Kerschbaum and introduced with a wide range of luxury features and powerful engines. Unlike the first-generation sedan, which was powered by a six-cylinder mill, the E32 gained V8 and V12 powerplants, opening a new era for the largest BMW of them all.
Design-wise, the second-generation 7 Series debuted the company’s typical L-shaped rearlights, distinctive wide C-pillar, and raised edge rear side window for easier interior access. The E32 was also the first 7 Series to gain an extended wheelbase version.
Luxury options offered by BMW on the 7 Series included integrated telephone and fax machine, double-glazed windows, traction control, and many more. Scroll below to watch the video and learn more about the second-generation 7 Series.
