Project Imola E38 Individual

So 4 weeks ago I found this car I just HAD to buy!!! This is one of only 4 special Canadian edition 740i Sport in Imola red with black/red piping interior. As I am a big fan of the E38 and Imola red, this had to be a project worth doing. The car is a 2000 740i Sport with 190K, in perfect working condition. I wanted the car ready for Bimmercruise, so only some minor mods were done so far; ACS front lip, colour matched side skirts and rear bumper, slight lowering in the rear, cross drilled rotors and pads, blacked out grills, chrome gauge rings and M5 steering wheel. The long term plan will be an M5 driveline swap including S62, 6 speed and LSD! I hope to have it all done for next spring.

Forget the S62, dig up an S70 combo from an 850CSi, should drop right in... 400 ft lbs of V12 awesome!

Very nice, love the project. Maybe it's just the pic but somehow your Touring looks tiny next to the 7.

Such a beautiful ride! Loved seeing it at Bimmercruise, definitely one of the highlights for me. Can't wait to see a 3rd pedal and a S62 shoved in there.

Love e38's! Very nice!! The only thing I don't care for is the wood trim. It just doesn't suit the imola.

Nice! Need more pics for my Individual photo collection.

Still can't believe that you wished to find one in February of this year and you actually found the exact car 5 months later and bought it.

P.S. Fil, still want to see your neighbor's Velvet 750iL

Yeah, that definitely looks like it.

By the way, I just found out that I made a mistake when I told you that only 4 cars like yours were built. There were 4 Imola Red Limited Editions built, however there were two versions of the interior. I looked at the build sheets a bunch of times and never noticed this. The interior choices were, Full Black leather with Red Piping or Full Modena leather with Red Piping.

P.S. Check your PM, got something for you.
