BMW launches the new top of the range, RM1.3m 7 series
Priced at RM648,888, the 730Li is a CBU (Complete Built Unit) importer from Thailand and it comes with BMW’s Service and Repair and is now the most affordable 7 Series. Previously, the most affordable one was the diesel powered 730Ld which was priced at RM698,888. According to Geoffrey Briscoe, the Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, the 730Li is the model that “our customers have been asking for, and it will form the bulk of 7-Series sales.”
It comes with a 3.0 liter inline-6 engine which comes with 258 horsepower and 310 Nm of torque where it gets you from zero to hundred in 7.8 seconds. This would be the only 7 series which is not equipped with a turbo and still get you up to 245km/h top speed and 10.2km/liter of average fuel consumption. It also comes with fittings like the rear climate control and 2 nicely fitted 8 inch LCD screens which can be integrated into the notebook, game consoles or the iPod. It also comes with BMW’s Connected Drive, the Dynamic Drive Control system as well as a 80GB hard disk space.
The Individual 740Li on the other hand is truly a class on its own where it comes with twin dual-side exhaust pipes (the 730 comes with single dual-side ones) and bigger wheels. It comes with the very high range 6.0 liter V12 twin turbo engine that gets you 544 horses and 750Nm of torque. Easily, this car gets from zero to hundred in 4.6 seconds. The engine is paired with the newly introduced 8 speed ZF transmission gearbox, the first of its kind in Malaysia. Of course, at RM1,388,000, you can most expect this car to come with all the top of the range fittings you can imagine to come out of the BMW stable.
