This 1997 BMW 740i was kept in a bubble for 20 years
I know a lot of people are still nostalgic about 1990s BMWs and even some early 2000 models. I also know the BMW E38 7 Series is regarded by many as the best there ever was and that some would love to have the chance to get one, brand new. Well, one such opportunity just popped up online.
This is a 1997 BMW 740i that has 255 kilometers on the clock and is basically brand new. The ad says the car was bought new back in the 1990s by a woman who, according to the registration papers, was born in 1927. Remember those jokes about second-hand cars being driven by old ladies to the church and back again? This might just be the first car to actually fit the description.
With that kind of mileage on the clock, this thing is basically brand new. To make things even better, the seller claims it has been kept in storage for about 20 years, in a controlled environment. You know, like Seinfeld's Bubble Boy. If that's true (as nobody can actually check whether that was the case) this is one heck of a find.
Now, if you're interested, there a bit of a hiccup. The ad on eBay is an auction and the price went up from 48,000 euros to 55,000 in a just 24 hours so a bidding war is bound to take place. Another hiccup is that the seller doesn't want to ship it to the US or Japan so you'll have to probably be in Europe to get it, preferably in Poland, close to the location of the car. Interested? Better yet, how much would you be willing to pay?
