BMW 740i details:
In the Americas, the models were sold as the BMW 740i, BMW 740il and 750il. The BMW 740i and BMW 740il share the same 4. 4 L V8 motor. The BMW 740il is essentially a long-wheelbase BMW 740i (hence the "l" in the model name). The considerably rarer 5. 4 L V12-powered 750il was only available as a long-body; there was no E38 750i in the US lineup. The 750il was BMW's main sedan.
The E38 was presented to the American sphere in 1995 originally with a 4. 0L V8 and metal sunroof. For the 1996 model year, a new 4. 4L V8 (producing 282 bhp) along with a glass sunroof replaced these features while the base BMW 740i was not provided for the 1996 model year. In 1997, the BMW 740i returned and in 1998, the 7-series received significant security upgrades: side impact airbags traditional up front and auxillary in the back with a new, market first, traditional Head Protection System. For the 1999 model year, the 7-series was given a refreshening with new headlights, tail lights, and cargo molding. A sport suite is now provided that included larger, 18" wheels, as well as sport suspension, torque converter, and axel. In 2000, the protection models are now provided and in 2001, another minor refreshening took place with clear turn signals and painted lower body work.
A performance-enhancing sport suite was available in the BMW 740i as well; vehicles with this suite are named the BMW 740i Sport. A separate sport suite was finally provided in the BMW 740il and 750il in 2001, the final year of E38 production.
