Powerful vehicles have not always been the priority of the Indian buyers. This is why most mass-segment vehicles that are on sale in the Indian market offer a high fuel efficiency but lack in power. This is why many enthusiasts and petrolheads choose to buy luxury vehicles from the Germans, which offer some great power regardless of fuel efficiency. However, for most of the car lovers and buyers, these vehicles stay out of their reach due to the extremely high price. Nonetheless, these vehicles are also available in the used car market at a much cheaper price after a few years of their launch. How cheap? Well, if you have the money to buy a Maruti Suzuki Dzire, you will be able to buy these vehicles too. Here is a 2008 BMW 525i, which is priced much lower than a brand-new Maruti Suzuki Dzire.
The BMW for sale here is a 2008 model but it has done only 77,000 km according to the odometer. The asking price of the vehicle is Rs 6.95 lakhs only, which makes it much cheaper than the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, which an entry-level sedan from the Indian manufacturer.
Being a 525i, it is powered by a petrol engine and that too a six-cylinder one. It gets a 2.5-litre straight-six cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 2112 Bhp at 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 246 Nm of peak torque. It is pretty quick too! The sedan can do 0-100 km/h in just 7.1 seconds, making it faster than any other new vehicle available in the market for Rs 7 lakhs. Also, it can reach an electronically limited top speed of 249 km/h.
Being a BMW, it offers excellent steering feedback and the suspension is tuned to handle the corners at high speed. This is a car designed for enthusiasts. It should be noted that this is the first time that BMW introduced the 5-Series to the Indian market. The car comes with projector headlamps with the legendary corona rings design. Even the cabin gets a lot of features.
According to the advertisement on Facebook Marketplace, the car is in excellent condition and from the pictures, we can figure out that it indeed looks great. It does not have any scratches or dents on the body the paint also looks like the original. In fact, the car is still owned by the first owner, which is something unusual, especially with such high-end vehicles.
The post further says that the car will come with a 6-month engine warranty under standard driving condition. It sure is a relief as an 11-year-old vehicle does not come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Also, the seller is offering one free service. You can contact the seller directly for more details.
