My Beloved BMW 7 Series ( E38 ) From Herpa 1:87

  • Hi Guys.This particular model the ( E38 ) is always be my favourite BMW 7 series and it still untill today.I was amazed by it design ( body lines ) , simple & yet fill with rich exclusiveness & with elegant stylish elements.
  • This model 750iL was 1st introduced since the 1997 James Bond ( Pierce Brosnan ) movie "Tomorrow never Die " where all the state of the art gadget tooks place.The usual refinement with the missiles ,rockets , spikes , chain cutter  , tyre inflatable device & most of all the remote control of the car from a cellphone & also the sexy female voice of the car.Never get enough from the multi storey car park's car chase scene & explosion.
  • Frank Martin ( Jason Statham ) driven the black BMW 735i in "The Transporter" comes with a manual transmission speeding in the narrow streets of  Marseille in southtern France.
  • BMW also come up with a series of internet short films in 2002 "The Hire" with British cast Clive Owen in the "Ambush".
  • This BMW 740i comes with dechrome body , 18" 5 spoke parallel sport rims , sport steering , black interior , rear wheel drive , 4.2 litre V8  ( 4172CC ) , 282bhp , max torque is 400 N/M.Is the last production of it's kind before replace by the successor E65.

Hi Kin,
such a big beauty of a Bimmer, done well by Herpa. I collect Herpa way back then, and their plastic 1:87 are superb!

Hi Erwin ,

Yes...i totally agree with you about the fantatic detailing work by Herpa.
Germany's technology is good in many ways from heavy industries to such micro & fine work.
I really salute them.Thanks again & cheers.Erwin!!!

In first look it's like 1:43! Great casting by Herpa, I've got Ferrari 348 TS and F40 from Herpa, and they are amazing. This 7 is one of my fav BMW's.

Hi Daniel ,

Yeah !!! Herpa is number "ONE" when comes to such fine & small scale miniature.
Even it is small but as you said is very accurate in propotion & looks really real under the magnifier.
