Cover BMW 8 Series

Owning a BMW X7, 7 Series or 8 Series gives you access to a world of exclusive lifestyle privileges, elevated experiences and intuitive services

Owning an ultra-luxury BMW takes you places.

A world of exclusive lifestyle privileges, elevated experiences and intuitive services await with the BMW Excellence Club: the exclusive owners club reserved for those with exceptional taste, remarkable standards of distinction and consummate discernment—those who own the X7, 7 Series and 8 Series, to be precise.

It isn’t simply about the drive; it’s about luxury without compromise.

Your journey goes beyond sheer driving pleasure, taking you to new heights of sophistication with a suite of lifestyle privileges handpicked to bring you the best in dining, shopping and travel, all just as exclusive as your discerning drive. 

The BMW 8 Series: High Performance Dressed in Sophisticated Elegance

Take the BMW 8 Series, for instance. The four-door 8 Series Gran Coupe is high-performance dressed in sophisticated elegance with a low-slung design arched by powerful shoulders for a muscular silhouette that’s unmistakably BMW’s own.

What sets the 8 Series apart as the brand’s top of the line sports luxury model is really what lies under the bonnet. In the BMW 840i Gran Coupe, a new six-cylinder, 3.0 litre engine serves up 340hp of power and 500Nm of torque for those who love an exhilarating ride.

The BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe, meanwhile, ups the ante as the 4.4 litre V8 powerhouse unleashes 530hp of power and peak torque of 750 Nm that will get you from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9 heart-pulsating seconds.

The BMW 7 Series: The Last Word in Executive Luxury

Now the BMW 7 Series represents the pinnacle of luxury and technology. As the brand’s flagship model, the 7 Series sets the benchmark in executive limousines with Nappa leather seats with extended quilting for a supremely plush interior, while soundproofing in the cabin is second to none via the use of 5.1mm-thick laminated glass in the windscreen and side and rear windows, which conspire to create a luxuriously silent ride.


With the 7 Series, your automobile is also your personal in-car assistant. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, which operates on the BMW Operating System 7.0, allows you to access many of the innovative features and technologies in the new BMW 7 Series by simply talking to your car.

Just say “Hey BMW” followed by your specific command. “Hey BMW, take me home”, for instance, activates the navigation and suggests the best route home while “Hey BMW, I’m tired” automatically adjusts the lighting and temperature to keep you alert and comfortable behind the wheel.

For those who prefer to be chauffeured in their BMW 7 Series, the Rear Seat Entertainment Experience (available in the BMW 740Li Visionary) offers individualised control of entertainment features via two 10-inch full HD screens, complete with a Blu-ray player.

Through the BMW Touch Command unit, rear passengers can change the lighting in the cabin, regulate air conditioning and adjust other features with just a few taps on the removable, 7-inch tablet. 

The X7: The Holy Grail of Space, Power and Comfort

As with the BMW 8 Series and 7 Series, the first-ever BMW X7 is for those who like to take command of the road the way they take command of their life.

The newest and largest of BMW’s Sports Activity Vehicles (SAVs) is designed for urban adventurers who seek the holy grail of power, space, advanced technology, safety and comfort unparalleled in a vehicle in its segment.  

The latest generation of the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system is powered by BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology, with the BMW X7 xDrive40i delivering 340hp of power and 450Nm of torque, with power channelled through an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission.


A nifty feature for an SAV is when the X7’s sport driving mode is engaged or when the car’s speed exceeds 120 km/h—the intelligent vehicle automatically lowers its ride height by 10mm.

To adjust the body’s ground clearance, just push a button in the cockpit to raise the car in two stages to a maximum 40mm above the standard setting. Another button in the luggage compartment activates a loading mode that lowers the car by 40mm. 

Space is something the X7 has in spades, seating up to seven passengers in the Design Pure Excellence model currently available in Singapore, while the special Launch Edition seats six.

Rare in other three-row vehicles is a level of comfort that only the BMW X7 affords every passenger; two captain’s chairs in the second row (in the Launch Edition) while the sense of spaciousness is amplified by an electrically-operated panoramic glass roof, which lets light flood into the interior.

On the Launch Edition, the panoramic glass roof Sky Lounge generates an exclusive aura when darkness falls, with LED light illuminating more than 15,000 graphic patterns across the glass, reminiscent of a starlit sky.

The X7 takes the notion of individuality further with its five-zone climate control system that allows passengers in the second and third rows to also control ambient settings, including their choice of scent with the Ambient Air package, for utmost comfort.

Throw in a centre console that keeps drinks warm or cool, together with wireless charging for your personal devices, and kids will be kept happy in this SAV, no matter their age.

By-Invite-Only Experiences and Networking Opportunities

Owning a BMW X7, 7 Series and 8 Series also earns you the privilege to be part of an elite group of car lovers who enjoy the best of what life has to offer.

With the BMW Excellence Club, your journey goes beyond sheer driving pleasure, taking you to new heights of sophistication with a suite of lifestyle privileges handpicked to bring you the best in dining, shopping and travel – all just as exclusive as your discerning drive.
