Vilner Creates Amazing BMW E38 750i

If you’re a BMW enthusiast and you already have a decent idea of how a car designed in Munich should look like, then you probably imagine the same general shape of a German luxurious car as I do, whenever you're thinking of the white and blue roundel: either a BMW E39 5 Series or a BMW E38 7 Series.

It’s not a coincidence that the code names of the two are so close. After all, on top of the similar design the two also shared the underpinnings, using roughly the same platform.

The 5er and the 7er will forever remain true classics and the incarnation of BMW’s school of design. That’s why the work the Bulgarians did to a 1999 750i completely blew me away.

Let’s face it, the car is pretty old and it should show its age by now but when true passion is involved, even a 15-year old can look stunning. The tuner managed to absolutely transform the interior, using a lot of black and grey leather, Alcantara and glossy trims.

If you’re thinking that only the seats and the steering wheel received special attention, you’re wrong. The roof liner, door panels and even the steering wheel were carefully attended so that everything is special when you climb aboard.

As for the engine, the 750i uses a 5.4-liter V12 that makes 320 HP and 490 Nm (360 lb-ft) of torque and is very well known for its reliability (codename M73TUB54, in case you wondered) so there was no need to interfere under the bonnet.
