German automaker BMW's India website has just been updated. The update comes in the form of the addition of a 7-Series model. The new car is 740Li Design Pure Excellence Signature. This new model is the new base 7-Series petrol variant and is a locally-assembled model as per the website. You would have to shell out Rs 1.26 crore (ex-showroom Delhi) to buy one.
