The world's premier luxury sedans are the competition for BMW's rear-wheel-drive 7-Series.
Both long- and short-wheelbase versions are available.
The short-wheelbase 740i handles superbly for its size, especially with the sport package.
The 4.4-liter V8 is smooth and powerful.
The V12 in the 750iL feels effortless.
Nearly all the controls are easy to use once you figure out what they do.
