Apparently the economic crisis has not hit the entire world and BMW has scored a major single sale this week: 132 740i and 740Li models have been purchased by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The vehicles handover took place during an official ceremony at the BMW Welt in Munich and BMW was represented by Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales and Marketing.

The 7 Series limousines will be used by the Saudi Arabia embassies across the world.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a growing market and it is becoming increasingly important for BMW.

    I live in Melbourne Australia and i have the new 750Li,
    sales here are actually booming!
    Initially sales were…ok, you had the old 7’s been traded in for the new ones,
    but in the past 3 months sales have boomed.
    So many new 7’s are on the road and the sales people are actually shocked.
    Its a shame the Australian BMW division isnt event noticed by upper management.

  3. Here in Saudi you see more 7 series than you see all other BMW models …
