Inside, the limited-edition 7s features a 31.3-inch, 8K rear panoramic display. A Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system is included, complete with 40 speakers. 

The 740i is powered by an inline-six petrol motor, producing 280 kW and 540 Nm of torque. The 740i’s twin-turbocharged engine incorporates 48 V mild-hybrid technology integrated into the eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.
