Two new variations of the color black--Azurite Black Metallic and Ruby Black Metallic--are introduced for the 2008 BMW 7-Series. There's also a special-order Individual Package, which includes special exterior colors offering varied color intensity and glistening effects, plus unique 20-inch wheels and illuminated door sills.

High-technology features; roomy interior (L); comfortable ride; overall performance; exclusivity (especially 760 and Alpina B7).
BMW's 2008 7-Series is by no means cheap, but it offers smooth, powerful, and sophisticated powertrains, top technology features, and the opportunity to add traditional luxury features and distinct interior trims. Especially in long-wheelbase form, it offers just as much room and comfort as other prestige luxury sedans, yet it has the nimble handling and sharp responses of smaller, lighter sport sedans.
