Material Girls Bmw 7-series for Sale at Auto Trader

By: Hailey Kerr

Are you a big fan of Madonna? If you are, then this is your chance to have one of her cars. The original Material Girl Madonna is currently putting her BMW 7-Series on sale at Auto Trader.

Madonna is the only owner of this 2002 BMW 745 Li, loaded with a range of luxury features and quality auto components just like the BMW 320 parts which is not really surprising, first of all because it's a BMW and second it's owned by the Queen of Pop who wants nothing more but the best.

Anyway, Madonna's 2002 BMW 745 Li is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 and produces 333bhp and 332 lb-ft of pulling power. It can also sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100kph) in a matter of 6.3 seconds before running out of puff at an electronically limited 155 mph.

Inside the 2.5 ton monster which cost $61,000 when brand new is a fitted sat-nav, TV, air conditioning, Nappa leather seats and all-round electrics.

Madonna's BMW sits on 19-inch alloys and features anti-lock brakes, traction control, and six airbags. Madonna is one of the world's biggest female artists with a massive chart success over the past 20 years.

Madonna has also recently headlined the Live Earth gig at the Wembley stadium which is an event organized by the former US presidential candidate Al Gore with the objective of highlighting climate change.

Unfortunately, Madonna's BMW is not the greenest vehicle on earth. Its large V8 engine has a combined fuel economy of 24.4 mpg and emits 280g/kmof carbon dioxide requiring it an annual tax bill of ?300 per year.

The Material Girl's BMW is not the first car featured on Auto Trader belonging to a musical royalty. For the past six months or so cars owned by Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Pete Townshend, and Frank Sinatra have all appeared on Auto Trader.

Even Madonna' husband, film director Guy Ritchie's BMW M5 is on the site.

Guy Ritchie who married Madonna the Queen of Pop in 2000 was the first owner of the 2001 M5 before finally passing it on to another member of the UK film industry last August 2003.

Ritchie's BMW M5 is powered by a 5-liter V8 engine that revs up 400 bhp. The M5 can sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in a matter of 4.9 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

Ritchie's five-door M5 enters the supercar territory dominated by Porsche 911 and Ferrari F430 with a top speed of 186 mph. Inside the M5 is a sat-nav, TV, climate control, heated seats, and a six-CD sound system. Its other features include ABS, traction control, rear parking sensors, and a six-speed manual gearbox.

It has covered just 36,000 miles. The M5's black motor boasts of full BMW service history.
