BMW Japan has prepared a limited-run 523d Maestro which acts as a celebration of classical music.

Automakers nowadays are racking their brains to come up with new special editions to entice customers and this latest example comes from Japan where the local BMW division has decided to apply a musical theme to the 523d. Concomitantly, this new limited-run model celebrates the company's 99th anniversary which is why they plan on offering only 99 units. All of them will be offered exclusively with a Black Sapphire paint and 19-inch M double-spoke 351M alloy wheels wrapped around in 245/40 R19 front and 275/35 R19 rear run-flat tires.

It gets a generous array of standard equipment such as adaptive full LED headlights, fog lights and taillights, along with a 16-speaker 600-watt Harman & Kardon sound system, soft-close doors, heated front seats and electric trunk opening/closing. BMW Japan has also applied the M Aerodynamics package, sports seats, front & rear parking sensor and rearview camera, M exterior badging and several Individual bits and pieces like the Merino Amaro Brown upholstery, fine-wood trim Sycamore Red Brown dark, Ansorajitto roof lining and high-gloss Shadow Line Exterior.

There aren't any changes underneath the hood, so this BMW 523d Maestro has the same four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine with 184 PS (135 kW) and 380 Nm (281 lb-ft) of torque channeled to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

BMW Japan will start taking orders on November 7 and they are asking 7,980,000 yen (about $66,750 / €59,000 / £43,100).
