The entire Banana Island erupted in excitement at the sight of a car that drove itself without anyone on the driver’s seat. It is very uncommon to see something like that. But for the first time in the history of automobile in Nigeria, Coscharis Motors, the sole franchisee of BMW brands in Nigeria, made this possible at the unveiling of the all new BMW 7 Series. Simply put, the BMW 7 Series is the future of modern luxury.
The new BMW 7 Series Sedan was recently launched to great acclaim by Coscharis Motors.

The new BMW 7 Series has perfect connectivity: standard features include a high-resolution navigation system with WLAN hotspot for online access and a hands-free Bluetooth mobile phone interface. Despite a multitude of functions, the controls are easy to get used to
