I spotted this very rare color combination on a 740i sport over at Roadfly ($19.4k, Florida) and had to post it up:
This Imola Red 740i has an immaculate paint, no exaggerations! The black interior is also perfect, showing no wear on any of the seats. I have all the repair history, with most of the work done at local BMW dealer. This is a unique E38, always garaged, and cared for by BMW enthusiast. Please e-mail me for pictures. The car comes with full sport interior, wide screen navigation, power rear window shades, xenon, power folding side mirrors, etc.
Here are a few of the things that have been replaced since 65k miles or more recent:
-Inspection II completed at BMW dealer
-Water pump + complete cooling system flush
-power steering flushed/replaced
-brake system fluid flush
-cabin recirculation filters
-air filter + fuel filter
-lower control arm bushings
-valve cover gaskets replaced
-Mobil 1 Etended Performance synthetic oil changes every 4k miles or less
-4 brake discs + pads+ stainless steel brake lines+ calipers in April 07 all from Bavarian Autosport
-Inner wheels, valve covers and brake calipers have been powder-coated and painted same Imola Red as the car
-H&R sport springs & Bilstein Sport shocks
-20″ OEM BMW wheels and tires like new(19″ BBS CH wheels also available)
-Bavarian Autosport complete performance brake system(see above for details)
-Dinan air intake, engine software and transmission software
-Dual Magnaflow performance exhaust
-hard wired for radar detector
-real Xenon fog lights with ballasts, matching the xenon headlights
-black kidney grills
-MK4 DVD navigation unit with $190 USA map DVD
That is about all I can remember for now. This E38 runs perfect, does not leak any fluids, and is up to date with all the maintenance.
I’m a total sucker for 740i Sport’s anyway. They have such a great presence and style. But I’ve never seen one in Imola Red before. Very striking car, good luck with the sale!
Update: This listing is very out of date. Why not check out one of these BMW 740 Sport’s on eBay right now:

I agree, the 740i Sport is a serious piece of kit. I’d have to switch the wheels to M Parallel Spoke even though they won’t fill the arches so well.
Agree about swapping the wheels. Looks like the right maintenance was done recently enough.
Just took much better pictures. I can e-mail them to you(email@example.com) or you can see them all here:
I’d buy it if it had the stock suspension. It’s got to ride hard and I’m not getting any younger.
It looks really nice i would buy it for a little less

YOUR CAR IS BEAUTIFUL! I HAVE A 2001 750IL. SAME COLOR. THE COLOR IS CALLED (SPECIAL ORDER 490) I HAD THE DEALER RUN MY VIN NUMBER AND THIS IS WHAT SHOWED. I’VE BEEN TOLD ONLY ONE 7 SERIES (740 AND 750) WERE PAINTED THIS COLOR.

I will like to know where to buy the rims of your car. Now… I noticed that he back rims are bigger than the front.
Thank you for the info…..
Looks like they’re OEM Style 128. I’d keep an eye on eBay and Google to find some used ones. Good luck!
Hi I would really like to buy some of those wheels for my 2000 BMW 740 Sport. I live in Gibraltar but can ship most stuff from UK (rather than Spain as you can imagine!!) – anyone know who sells OEM wheels in the UK??
