BMW the 7th E38 series (from 1994 to 2002 of release)
The 3rd generation of sedans of BMW of the E38 7-series of the class "luxury" was presented for the first time in 1995.
BMWs of 7 series were issued in the following options: 725tdi, 730d, 730i, 735i, 740i, 740iL, 750iL, 740iL Protection and 750iL Protection. Cars of the Protection series are equipped with bullet-proof glasses, the details strengthening security of a body, and wheels on which it is possible to go even if they are completely lowered.
At once it is necessary to understand: car not the absolutely representation. BMWs are famous for physicality therefore, if to speak about smoothness of a course and noiselessness, "seven" partly concedes to competitors. Even the car prompter than schoolmates looks: the low cowl topped with firm "nostrils" of a front grille, big glasses.
Despite the big external sizes, in a place there is not a lot of. The driver at all sits, as if in a fighter cockpit - it is surrounded by devices and buttons of management with auxiliary systems. The central console is traditionally slightly developed to it by the face.
Thus, in the car there are all necessary elements of comfort, including an electropackage, automatic adjustments of seats and climate control. (Primas: Till 98th year the majority of options was not included into a standard complete set)
Popularity to "seven" was added from year to year by electronic "brains" on which it on a step forward overtook other competitors. Among an electronic stuffing - system of dynamic stabilization of movement (DSC), and the adaptive automatic transmission (AGS), allowing to change algorithm of gear shifting depending on movement modes, and an electronic control system of the ELM engine.
Electronics also in many respects defines characteristics of a suspension bracket and systems of active safety. For example, systems of regulation of provision of a body of NR and automatic stabilization of a body of ASC care of comfort of passengers when driving. ECS by means of electronics operates rigidity of shock-absorbers.
The version 750iL is in addition completed with Park Distance Control system, 5-step AKPP, a self-regulating suspension bracket, the cell phone with a voice set of number, warmed lobbies and back seats, an audiosystem consisting of 14 loudspeakers which capacity makes 440 Watt and aluminum disks. The system of ventilation and control of temperature allows to establish various climate for the driver and passengers forward and back seats.
BMW of the 7th series also was offered with the body extended on 13 cm a limousine (740iL, 750iL) and with lengthening on 38 cm (BMW 750iXL). All additional space is provided to back passengers who can extend feet practically. Here, undoubtedly, the luxury reigns. Smart "bimmer" kept in itself all family advantages - magnificent dynamics and controllability. Thanks to the flagman V12 developing 326 forces, the limousine is dispersed to one hundred for six with small seconds.
On smoothness of a course engineers of BMW found a compromise between controllability and comfort. The car is rather smooth to correspond to requirements of a representation class, and is rather exact in reactions that it will be pleasant to the driver who is a good judge of fast driving. Yes, to drive on straight lines it is possible on any of German leaders, but only BMW in addition perfectly behaves on twisting roads. Rather rigid suspension bracket is difficult for "punching" even if to drive at great speed in a serious pothole.
"Seven", besides, are completed with several airbags of safety both for passengers of lobbies, and for passengers of back seats. Moreover, the new system Head Protection System being an inflatable umbrella which is developed on a diagonal from a windscreen rack to a roof over a back door, provides protection of the heads sitting ahead of passengers. Safety of those who took place behind is provided by the airbags built in doors. Also it is equipped with the locks blocking doors from opening by children, Dynamic Stability Control system and the built-in sensors which automatically open doors and include emergency fires and fires in salon in case of serious failure.
