(from BMW Press Release)
Marking the introduction of the BMW 760Li to the press, BMW Individual
presents the concept car 760Li Yachtline, a true masterpiece in
automobile construction. With this exceptional interpretation the
division of BMW M, founded back in 1992, has once again produced proof
of its competence: The concept car 760Li Yachtline, designed by
BMW Individual, features a carefully selected combination of exclusive
equipment, which gives this car its authentic yachting character.
The 760Li Yachtline enables many BMW 7 Series customers who have a
passion for yachting, to show their passion through their choice of car.
You are sailing the seven seas by yacht. But which is the appropriate
saloon to go with it? BMW Individual answers this question with a most
distinctive interpretation of the BMW 760Li.
The interior, in particular, gives the 760Li Yachtline its maritime
character: The deco trim in the cockpit and in the rear compartment is
made of high-grade mahogany which incorporates maple strips, bestowing
the interior an exclusive yachting ambience, further accentuated by the
emblems of a compass embroidered on the anthracite floor carpet. It goes
without saying that the Merino leather in Champagne colour is included
in the all-leather package, as one would expect of a car boasting such a
high degree of exclusivity. Due to its natural quality, this leather is
smooth and supple, making it a very special experience to sit on the
16-way adjustable comfort seats.
The exterior paint exclusive to the BMW 760Li Yachtline is called 'Night
blue metallic'. Illuminated doorsill strips bearing the 'BMW Individual'
logo, high-gloss shadowline trim on all chrome-plated parts featured by
the 'standard 7 Series model' as well as body-colour roof trims
effectively demonstrate that this is a very special 7 Series model.
White indicator lights and the BMW Individual 20'' wheels underline the
BMW 7 Series' characteristic design and skilfully round off the 760Li
Yachtline's exterior look.
As with a yacht, it is the smaller details that contribute to the
perfection of an automobile. BMW Individual designers have therefore
paid special attention to a host of further details like the harmonious
combination of the anthracite floor carpet and the roof lining in
Alcantara anthracite. The contrast between light and dark colours is a
design cue, which has been continued in the design of the bicoloured
steering wheel, which comes in Champagne/Black. And last but not least
the humidor, integrated into the front part of the center armrest, shows
that very special details are concealed in the BMW Individual 760Li.
In addition to this, customers will be able to order additional extras,
as is usual with cars designed by BMW Individual. Further maritime
features on offer include a compass integrated into the interior mirror
as well as cardan reading lights. Technological highlights are the
intercom system as well as the DVD system with two 6.5-inch monitors
integrated into the backrests of the front seats. The wide selection of
special options is rounded off by worktables and a cooling box with an
increased refrigerating capacity, located between the rear-compartment
The BMW 7 Series featuring the BMW Individual's Yachtline equipment
should be available from 2003.
