BMW has introduced the new 340i 40th Anniversary Edition in Japan.

Designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 3-Series, the special edition is based on the 340i M Sport and features a Tanzanite Blue exterior with a black grille, satin aluminum accents and 19-inch M light alloy wheels.

Moving on to the interior, there's Dakota leather seats, piano black trim and a BMW Individual leather-wrapped dashboard.  The model also has heated front seats, a heads-up display and a Harman / Kardon audio system.

Power is provided by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 326 PS (240 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque.  It sends power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The BMW 340i 40th Anniversary Edition will go on sale on October 3rd and pricing starts at ¥8,790,000.  However, you'd better act fast as production is limited to 20 units.
