BMW 760LI Individual 7 Series Sterling is the vehicle that contains 22 Pounds of Sterling Silver.
The most expensive BMW 7 Series car of all time. The vehicle stands for individualism, pure luxury and quality.
Sterling Silver is really high class material. No metal on earth reflects natural light as beautiful as sterling silver does. And silver is soft metal, which enables silversmiths to craft shapes and patterns in most subtle way.
When you open a door of the BMW, you’ll touch a silver handle with hammered finish. The interior of the car is breathtaking. As you open the door, the first things you notice are the silver-plated door sill finishers with ROBBE & BERKING lettering. All the trim strips of the car are made of .925 sterling silver.
All hammered surfaces are solid 925 sterling silver – the trim surfaces of the BMW individual 760Li sterling showcase the punch mark with the crescent moon, which is the international symbol for silver; the crown, the symbol for germany, and the maker’s mark. Also known as martelé, hammering is one of the oldest and most sophisticated techniques of the silversmith’s art. The depressions created by the hammer break up the light in numerous directions, lending the metal surface organic movement as well as embellishment. To achieve this texture, a highly polished sheet of sterling silver is processed using a special silversmith’s hammer. No two hammer blows should fall on the same spot and yet the entire surface must be covered with equal force. One misplaced punch and the piece is no longer usable.
Of course it’s a luxury car, but at the same time it’s a masterpiece of silversmith’s art.
