It’s a well known fact that luxury cars are depreciation disasters, and this is especially true of super exotic variants of luxury cars, like this particular BMW 760Li 7-Series luxury saloon. The 760 Li variant was the very top-of-the-line BMW 7-Series luxury saloon sold in India, and was bought only by those who really knew their cars, and wanted thrilling performance in a super luxurious package. So, such customers typically movie stars and business tycoons. This example was owned by Bollywood movie star Shahrukh Khan, who was this car’s first owner. When Shahrukh Khan first bought this car, he paid about Rs. 2 crores, with the steep price mainly having to do with the import duties for the 760Li, which was imported through the completely built unit (CBU) route. You can now buy this car for just Rs. 12.5 lakh. No kidding, 12.5 lakh, and it’s yours.
Yes, we get it. You’re stunned that a top-of-the-line BMW 760Li owned by a movie star is selling for so cheap. Well, you can thank the National Green Tribunal for that, which has banned 15 year old petrol cars from Delhi streets. This particular example is from 2007, which means that it’s 13 years old, and the current owner (it’s second) has just 2 years left before the car can be transferred to someone with a non-Delhi NCR address. That explains why this car is selling at such an affordable price tag.
Then there’s the cost of maintaining such an exclusive, high-performance luxury car, which can be quite steep unless you know some good neighborhood mechanics who handle high-end German cars. This is another reason why the resale value of super exotic luxury cars is so low.
Be that as it may, there are many neighborhood garages that can handle the maintenance of such high-end cars in most big Indian cities now. So, if you can afford the steep cost of replacement parts, this car is still a brilliant buy for the following reasons.
- It’s seriously FAST. Talk about a luxury barge that can transform itself into a cruise missile if your right leg feels the itch for it. The 6,000cc V12 petrol engine makes 445 German thoroughbred horses, and a mammoth 600 Nm of peak torque. With all that power and torqye on tap, this car can hit 100 Kph in just 5 seconds, and go all the way to an electronically limited 250 Kph top speed.
- Owned by a A-list celebrity like Shahrukh Khan, this car is still in excellent condition.
- Again, since it was owned by Shahrukh Khan, no expense was spared while specifying it to his tastes. Equipment on the car include
20″ MANSORY wheels with Pirelli P0 tyres, Alcantara roof, Electric sunroof, Bi xenon headlamps with angel eyes, Front electric memory seats, Rear electric recliner seats, Rear entertainment system, Push button start, Keyless entry, Soft close doors, Electric boot opening and closing, Electric curtain in rear windshield, Electric privacy blind in rear doors, In car refrigerator, In car DVD receiver, Front night vision cam, Rear night vision cam and Double glazed sound proof windows.
