BMW Japan is presenting another special edition to celebrate the brand's centenary.
It was only yesterday when we talked about a Japan-only M6 Celebration Edition Competition and now we have another special model destined for the Land of the Rising Sun. This one too is part of BMW’s ongoing centenary celebrations and is based on the 750Li with a plethora of goodies from the Individual catalog. 70 cars are planned for production and all of them will be exclusively available with an Azurite Black finish and 20-inch forged alloy wheels.
Those willing to spend the ¥ 18,800,000 (about $169,143 / €151,876) asking price should know the 7 Series Celebration Edition will come as standard with a sunroof featuring LED ambient lighting in six colors. BMW Japan will also throw in a high-end Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system with 16 speakers and a total power of 1,400 watts.
Seats will be wrapped in the finest Merino leather featuring a caramel finish and complemented by an Alcantara headliner and a piano black trim. There’s a lot more kit included as standard, such as the Design Pure Excellence exterior and interior packages, BMW Individual door sill plates, remote parking, rear comfort package plus, ambient air and heat comfort packages, and some wood trim here and there for an extra touch of elegance.
Being based on the 750Li, the Celebration Edition Individual comes with the same biturbo 4.4-liter V8 engine delivering 450 horsepower (330 kilowatts) and 480 pound-feet (650 newton meters) to the rear axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The hardware arrangement enables Bavaria’s fullsize executive sedan to hit 62 mph (100 kph) in 4.7 seconds and top out at an electronically-restricted 155 mph (250 kph) while you are relaxing on those heated rear seats with massaging functions.
Don’t think it’s the last special edition from BMW Japan. There’s also an i8 Celebration Edition and a 2 Series Active Tourer Celebration Edition Fashionista. More on these two later in the week.
