Its maximum acceleration speed is 250 kilometers per hour, and the engine consumes 13.6 liters per hundred kilometers. The vehicle has a long lifespan, but is very susceptible to overheating and water hammer, which occurs when water enters the air intake, which is too low.

At the end of 1998, the BMW 750i was slightly modified. Models of this modification can be identified by narrower turn signals and non-standard taillights. In addition, there is a chrome strip on the roof of the trunk, and lamps are built into the door handles, illuminating not only the car, but also the road below it.

The trunk hydraulic drive began to be included in the standard package, andoptionally - tire pressure monitoring systems and dynamic brake control. During emergency braking, the mechanism automatically increases the pressure in the brake system to the maximum.

You can also choose from three front seats: regular, contoured and "active", which is a massage chair with a hydraulic system located inside the cushion.

The structure of the engine has also changed. The six- and eight-cylinder engines now controlled both camshafts, and the twelve-cylinder engine was fitted with an electrically heated catalytic converter.
