In collaboration with the BMW Individual Manufaktur, Mahlangu transformed a luxury saloon into a dynamic and unique work of art by painting her characteristic and ornamental motifs on the real wood interior trims. BMW Individual Manufaktur developed a special white-coloured fine-wood trim to be painted with Esther’s images before sealing them to ensure their longevity and installing them within the equally remarkable vehicle.
The car itself is a right-hand drive vehicle, with an array of equipment from the BMW Individual Collection, in addition to the unique features incorporated by Esther Mahlangu and BMW Individual Manufaktur. The exterior bodywork is finished in BMW Individual Pure metal Silver, a first for the UK, while the wheels feature 20-inch BMW Individual light alloy design.
The prestigious BMW 740Li is powered by an in-line six-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which creates 240 kW/326 hp (combined fuel consumption: 40.4 mpg; combined CO2 emissions: 164 g/km) and maximum torque of 450 Nm. The dynamic saloon sprints from 0 to 62mph in just 5.6 seconds; top speed is limited to 155mph. The BMW 740Li features an 8-speed Steptronic transmission and has the lowest vehicle weight in its segment.
