BMWBLOG kicks off a new series of articles. The THROW BACK THURSDAY will run every week, as you guessed, on a Thursday and will take us back into the amazing history of the BMW brand and some of the most iconic models.

Perhaps one of the most iconic vehicles to be born in the 80’s is the BMW E32 7 Series. This was BMW’s flagship sedan aimed at the high end market and took nearly seven years to create, hence the name 7 Series. At the time, this vehicle boasted some of the industries newest technologies such as a wine cooler, fax machine, and a traction control system.

There were five engine options for the E32 which ranged from a straight-6 M30 (735i) engine to the M70 V12 engine (750i).

BMW continued to produce this model from 1987 to 1994 with 5 different variations. This car is the epitome of the Ultimate Driving Machine.

    Um… a little fact checking please.

    Was called the 7 series because it took 7 years to design? What? Explain the E23 then.

    Also, the “lowest” model was the European-only 730, not the 735.

      i thought the lowest was the 728

    I am saying that, the idea of a high end large sedan is something BMW toyed with for years, seven to be specific so when the FIRST E23 came out it was called the 7 series, which shares it’s name with the E32 but thank you for that.

    • Captain Obvious

      So it had nothing to do with 3 and 5 series already existing and 7 series being the next logical step for naming it? Right…
