Buy the chauffeur some gardening gloves; he's going to have more spare time.
The 2016 BMW 7 Series comes in 740i and 750i versions. Although not badged as such, they both have long wheelbases for maximum rear passenger space.
The 740i ($82,295) comes with a comprehensive list of standard equipment. This includes 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED lighting inside and out, adaptive air suspension, quad-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, selectable drive modes, keyless entry/ignition, hands-free trunk operation, a twin-panel panoramic sunroof, soft-closing doors, 10-way power adjustable and heated front seats with driver's-side memory settings, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 10.2-in display and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with satellite radio, HD Radio and a pair of USB ports.
The 750i ($95,395) has 19-in alloy wheels, upgraded leather, a heads-up display (BMW says it's the largest in the industry), a power sunshade for the rear window and 20-way multi-contour front seats. This model can also come with all-wheel drive, badged as the 750i xDrive.
Both versions are eligible for the Autobahn package, which uses cameras to read the road surface then prompts the computer-controlled suspension to react accordingly. It also includes variable-ratio steering and rear-wheel steering.
The 750i can be ordered with the Rear Executive Lounge package, where the reclining passenger-side rear seat feels more like first-class air travel, complete with a retractable footrest and a foldaway table. The package also brings a dual-screen rear entertainment system and a tablet to control various car functions, surf the web or act as a games console. The tablet is held in place by power retractable clips, a cool touch.
Other options include heated armrests, a cabin fragrance system, massaging seats, a 1400-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system with 16 part-illuminated speakers, night vision and other advanced safety features listed in the Safety section below. Trunk space is a capacious 18.2 cu ft.
