At first, it might not seem like a big deal that a long wheelbase BMW E38 7 Series was spotted in Beijing but looking into the matter for a bit, might make you change your mind.
The thing is this particular model was built by BMW for particular markets in Asia, USA and Arabia. Actually, they only built 899 units of them and the thing that made them special was the fact that they were longer than the standard model by 10 inches or 25 cm.

Furthermore, there were only 2 engines available for it: a 4.4-liter V8 with 282 HP and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque or a 5.4-liter V12 with 326 HP and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft) of torque.

As you might've guessed already, the L7 was never officially exported to China so this V12-powered beast is a rather rare car. Also, it looks to be in splendid shape and someone seems to be using it on a daily basis. Lucky man!
