SOME women fancy themselves as first ladies, queens or even billionaires' wives.

SOME women fancy themselves as first ladies, queens or even billionaires' wives.

But, of course not every woman was meant for that.

But I was lucky enough to experience what the MaNtulis of this world experience in their everyday lives.

I drove the marvellous BMW 760Li and felt like a first lady.

I created an imaginary president husband. As the Fifa World Cup was peaking in South Africa, I was sitting comfortably behind the wheel of the 760Li.

Unfortunately, BMW SA did not provide a chauffeur when they delivered the vehicle.

I came across one of those interesting men, the type that thinks he can get any woman.

He offered his services as my "chauffeur" but I politely declined. I had gotten comfortable driving myself by then.

This BMW is luxury on wheels.

It is equipped with everything that the president may need at home.

The top-of-the-range BMW is no ordinary four wheels but a breathtaking creation.

For many BMW fanatics getting into a 760Li would be a milestone.

Driving it felt like sitting in my lounge.

The 760Li handles beautifully at corners, something one would naturally expect from such a car.

It is a car that's designed for those who love big engines without compromising their comfort.

The 760Li is powered by a 6,0-litre V12 engine.

The wheelbase is extended by 14cm compared to a standard BMW 7-series, for extra comfort at the rear.

The car boasts superior suspension technology, innovative driver assistance systems and luxurious comfort, as well as a combination of elegance and sporting performance.

It offers all the qualities required to enjoy a truly incomparable driving experience .

The big car comes as standard with dynamic damping control, including dynamic driving control operated at the touch of a button on the centre console, speed-related servotronic steering assistance and BMW's dynamic drive anti-roll stability system.

It also features air suspension, including self-levelling on the rear axle, and integral active steering equipped with speed-related adjustment of the steering angle on the rear wheels.

With this enhanced steering function, both front and rear, the car's grand touring comfort on the rear seats reaches an even higher level, especially when changing lanes at high speeds.

The innovative driver-assistance system include lane-change warning, lane-departure warning, BMW night vision with detection of individuals, the BMW heads-up display, as well as a rear- and side-view camera system.

Visual reference to the V12 power unit on the outside of the car is similarly stylish and discreet.

The kidney grille for the radiator boasts an extra-wide chrome frame.
